The closed yatri group facilitated long and enriched discussions. The kind of welcome we received at the government’s end was overwhelming. It was great to see professionalism in governance and the political will to get things done.

This yatra has made me see the flip side of the coin that was often kept in dark by the media. The amount of work that is being done by the government often doesn’t get its due credit. I can proudly say that this yatra has transformed me from being a pessimist to an optimist.

Both my experiences with VIF have filled me with optimism and passion for building a better society. As an aspiring policymaker, I had a wonderful experience because of the direct access we received to experience the backstage of governance. I met some amazing mentor, friends and colleagues in my journey towards bringing a social change.

GGY brought together passionate individuals who want to transform India. It gave us an insight into the current situation & how small interventions are enough to make massive differences. It has made me confident that if pursued with excellence & worked for, then nation is bound to transform & we will be the Change Agents

GGY has been an astronomical journey of 10 days of visiting superb projects & learn from inspirational role models. The wide spectrum of projects from drought-hit villages to metropolitans with people from diverse backgrounds has helped develop a holistic view of things. This journey looks unending with introspection & questions to ponder about.

I came for the good governance yatra, with the desire to satiate my curiosity while I travel and explore. This yatra has done justice to both. The things learnt during the yatra in a diverse group like this could never be learnt in a classroom setting.
