The Theme of the Programme was “Young India, New India–A Resurgent Nation: from  Sankalp to Sidhi”.
Prime minister highlighted the significance of this date as this is the date on which a great monk of India preached the lesson of love and universal brotherhood to the world on American soil and it is the same day when the greatest event of hatred which shook humanity happened on the same soil. Had we remembered the message of the swami Vivekananda we could have changed the course of history.
Prof Nandita Singh, Coordinator of Interdisciplinary Centre for Swami Vivekananda Studies highlighted Swami ji’s message of tolerance and universal acceptance. She told that during his speech in Parliament of Religions in Chicago, Swami Vivekananda quoted from the “Shiva Mahima Stotram” through which he explained that even though people use different paths to reach the divine, they all ultimately reach Him, irrespective of the path they had chosen.
Vivekananda’s speech was very well received by the audience at the Parliament and had great influence over them. The American press complimented, “Vivekananda is undoubtedly the greatest figure in the Parliament of Religions. He has brought the message of Harmony and peace and not dissension to the world. Vivekananda strongly believed in the power of the youth and called it Yuva Shakti. He exhorted youth to come forward and play a significant role in nation building. He was a great scholar, intellectual and a patriot who believed that science and innovation can take this country out of the shackles of poverty. Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyaya was a great thinker, self less worker and the leader of Bhartiya Jan Sangh. He is remembered for his philosophy of ‘Integral Humanism’. He believed that indigenous Indian Culture had to be weaved into the social, political and economic fibre of the nation and it is only by doing that, we can move forward. A nation is like a human body which has body, mind, intellect and soul. The holistic development of a nation can only take place if we bring peace and harmony in the mind and awaken the soul.
