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.

Shining Stars and Smiling Flowers-3 Technology: The Tool for Compassionate
Many a times, youth say there is no ideal in front of us; they dream and wish for the best. And while grieving or being depressed over what is not with them, they do miss so many inspiring, heart-warming, life nurturing moments in life. While grieving over the long distance between the shining stars and our self, we miss so many beautiful smiling flowers around us. These smiling flowers warm our heart and make our life fragrant. The shining stars are distant and visible only in the night but the fragrant flowers are always around. Let us stop grudging and grumbling and open our eyes to see these smiling flowers in our society. These smiling flowers are strewn liberally on each path. As a Jeevanvrati Karyakarta of Vivekananda Kendra, on my path too, I come across many beautiful smiling flowers, the inspiring, heart touching moments. This series is a garland of such blossoming, smiling flowers.
