On the occasion of National Youth Day, Kartavya Sadhana is publishing an audio series titled “In Conversation with.....” The series is comprised of three interviews - Priyanka Mohite (Sports), Deepa Pawar (Social) and Kavita Kuruganti (Agriculture). They are working in their field for a long time. Their lives, work, and their life choices have a lot to inspire young people of society.

In this freewheeling conversation with Priyanka Mohite, we tried to understand her professional journey, her mountaineering career. Priyanka who hails from Satara district, started to climb mountains right from the age of 20. She is a dynamic young personality whose dancing legs are now climbing. A biotechnology researcher, Bharatnatyam dance and athlete, a lot is there in her hat. Recently she was awarded the Tenzing Norgay National Adventure award 2020 by honorable President Ramnath Kovind. Priyanka is known for expeditions but there is a lot to her journey.

National Youth Day is commemorated in the honour of a great philosopher and monk Swami Vivekananda. In 1985, the Government of India declared Swami Vivekananda's birthday – January 12 - National Youth Day. The day is marked to celebrate his life and teachings that have encouraged millions across the world.  On the backdrop of National Youth Day, we are publishing comprehensive interviews of people who can be an inspiration for youth.
