AKHIL BHARATIYA VIDYARTHI PARISHAD
In the wake of Independence, keeping in the mind the pride and glory of the traditions of aeons, the entire country dreamt of making our Nation a modern and developed one, freed from all circumstantial impediments and drawbacks. In order to realize this dream, certain youth imbued with such conviction commenced on a movement, centered in the college and University campuses across the country. A national forum of these activities was formalized and registered on the 9th July, 1949, in the form of a student organization THE AKHIL BHARATIYA VIDYARTHI PARISHAD (ABVP).
As our country was freed from the shackles of colonialism, an opportunity for inclusive, holistic development arose. A pall of gloom had descended on the potential excellence of the country due to centuries of foreign domination and subjugation. It is at this point of time that a student organization like the ABVP got established in our country, which, inspired by the great culture and traditions of the worlds oldest civilization, wanted to reconstruct India into a powerful, prosperous and proud Nation, committed as it was, to the grand notion of placing Her at the upper echelons of the global comity of Nations.
Basic Tenets of ABVP
ABVP wants to build an ideal student movement which will work in the wider context of National Reconstruction, in the field of education with a firm belief in constructive activity, in the existence of educational community and in the need to stay above partisan politics.
Educational community was given the widest possible meaning to include not only the students but also the teachers, the administrators and educationalist even the term can be stretched to include non teaching staff.
ABVP is engaged in the task of National Reconstruction in the field education in a wider context of National Reconstruction. This demands a constructive approach for the growth of the nation in all spheres. ABVP emphasizes on an all inclusive and constructive approach.
Above Parties and Politics
We are above partisan politics but we accept that social activity cannot be non political in a strict sense. ABVP believe that as citizens of the country students are bound to react to the socio political situation and his actions may have some necessary political implications. We have time and again stated that students have a socio political role. ABVP insist that as a student organization we are not a wing or part of any political party. We believe that politics, partisan politics, power politics government and political parties etc. are essential parts of the society but they ought not to be all pervading and all controlling. Political party cannot be the focal point of the social organization. It is only one of the organs. Therefore strong mass organizations who dont serve power and power politics are necessary component of a successful society. Further, fundamentally social transformation is the job of the society it cannot be a wholesale contract given to any agency or government. Change should come from within the society, holding a mirror to the culmination of,organised individual participation. Hence ABVP prefer to stay above partisan politics in its commitment to National Reconstruction in the field of education.
