The philosophical guru's birthday (January 12) is marked as the National Youth Day in the country, as he is an epitome of inspiration for young India.

Mass Surya Namaskar was organised in entire Madhya Pradesh today on the occasion of Swami Vivekananda's birth anniversary. The Chief Secretary said, Swami Vivekananda was the first person in recent years to bring to the western World the best culture and glorious heritage of India. Swami Purnatmananda, the monk in charge of Swami Vivekananda's ancestral house on Bidhan Sarani, barely 2km from the MG Road-Central Avenue intersection where clashes took place, was visibly distraught on hearing about the violence.

"The thoughts of Swami Vivekananda continue to inspire the youth of our nation and have united them..." The programme, participated by a good number of youth, was organized by the Department of Sports and Youth affairs, in association with Department of Education and Ramakrishna Mission.
