REBIRTH OF INDIA
India, Great and Free Series - 45 Swami Vivekananda’s attempts of Igniting work for the rebirth of India
When I was Principal in Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalaya at Kanyakumari, I had made it a point to go to all the classes in a week. I used to take ‘moral science’ classes. Whatever is to be told to children to mould them and develop proper attitude and good habits in them I used to tell through stories. After experimenting with various suggested courses, I came to the conclusion that a story can be the most effective tool. So, I made my plan that in each class a specific great principle of our culture should be communicated through suitable stories.

India is a Land of Yoga
From time immemorial, India has been identified as the land of Yoga, many rishis, sages and saints in Bharat practiced Yoga and enjoyed the benefits of Yoga. They have become Yogis. Yoga is both a science and art, it has been a science of this world for physical health and of the other world for spiritual health. In between, it is the science of the psyche, intellect, willpower, and devotion. So much so India itself breathes the spirit of Yoga Geographically, it is a symbol of Yoga.

Swami Vivekananda And The Pandemic Panic
Epidemics and pandemics have devastated the human race throughout its existence. From prehistoric times to the present modern-days we have noticed numerous pandemics and medical emergencies. While some even turned as devastating as the fourteenth century ‘’Bubonic plague ’’ which was also known as the Black Death causing millions of human lives and is regarded as one of the most fatal pandemics in human history. Some similar conditions have evolved in the last one year and especially in last month and a two due to the Wuhan originated pandemic COVID-19 as the death toll surpasses three million mark worldwide and the arrival of a new variant or what is regarded as double mutant strain of the coronavirus has just kept the public and the governments on toes throughout the globe. However, while talking about India in particular the vaccination drive has reached close to a century but with alarming hard days, we need something which can strengthen us psychologically and emotionally too. Our search can get a halt when we come across a one hundred twenty one years old ‘Plague Manifesto’ written by the warrior sanyasi Swami Vivekananda during the Bengal Plague in 1898.

Swami Vivekananda – The Fire, The Flame And Sparks
On the auspicious Makarasankaranti Day, 12th of January, 1863, was born Narendranath Datta, a veritable fire-ball of knowledge and renunciation from his childhood, who, later, under the benign influence of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, got metamorphosed into the great Swami Vivekananda – fore most among India’s Patriots, Saints and Philosophers—a true Master, Mentor and Moulder and Maker of India’s destiny. More than eight years have passed, since this flame, which drew people to him like a magnet, extinguished itself. Yet, the sparks therefore continue to set aflame the hearts of thousands with fiery ideals of renunciation, dedication and love for Motherland, spreading blazing trails of idealism.
Swami Vivekananda was born on the 12th January 1863. Along with him was Hinduism reborn to be comprehensive. Along with him was reborn religion to be rational. Along with him was reborn Indian culture for a renaissance.
