PM Modi at students' convention: Vivekananda converted ideas into idealism

PM Modi at students' convention: Vivekananda converted ideas into idealism”

If anyone has the right to say Vande Mataram in the country, it is the people who clean the country. On Sunday, the Prime Minister, in a series of tweets, said the theme of his address will be "Young India, New India".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday addressed more than 1,000 students in New Delhi to mark the 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda's Chicago address and Pt Deendayal Upadhyaya centenary celebrations.

On September 9, 1893, Vivekanda delivered a historic address at the Parliament of Religions in Chicago, where he eloquently quoted from Bhagvad Gita.

However, Mr. Rayaraddi said that while the State has instructed universities and colleges to make necessary arrangements as it marks the 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda's Chicago address, they can not allow the same platform to be used as means to propagate Hindutva ideology.

While the West Bengal government has opposed the move of showing the speech in its state universities, there is no such opposition in Telangana. "The Centre can not do it without informing or without taking the concurrence of the state government concerned", state Education Minister Partha Chatterjee said at a press conference on Friday last week. To increase the reach of the programme, UGC and AICTE have directed universities and higher education institutes to make arrangements for the faculty and students to watch the address.

He further went on to ask the youths to respect women.

- Swami Vivekananda did not believe in sermonising.

- Swami Vivekananda had given the concept of 'One Asia.' He said that the solutions to the world's problems will come from Asia. He saw a vital place for youngsters in the realm of nation building. "This year, we are marking 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda's Chicago address and Pt. Deendayal Upadhyaya centenary celebrations", the prime minister yesterday said in tweet.
