In honor of "Mans search for meaning and purpose of life"

An exemplary leader, Swami Vivekananda through his revolutionary ideas inspired youth not only in India but worldwide. He stressed the need for the youth to lead a responsible and dutiful life and in search of truth.

He believed that youth is the foundation of a country and they are a great asset to any nation as they are full of energy, enthusiasm and innovative ideas. He called for channelizing their energy in the right direction so that they can drive the country on the path of progress. He always encouraged youth to work for the betterment of the country as he asked the youth to organised for nation-building and take various initiatives.

The world remembers him for his historical speech that he delivered in world religion of congress on 11.09.1893. We are just one month away from celebrating Swami Vivekananda's outstanding speech at world religion of Congress. On his voyage to America, he had sent a message from Osaka (Japan) to the youth of the country —let’s be human. He also dwelt on the capabilities of the youth; he wanted the youth to train itself in order to serve humanity.

What he wanted from the youth were ‘muscles of iron’ and ‘nerves of steel’. Today, the youth are exceptionally responsive and they just need to be encouraged. Swami Vivekananda was only the medium; he is himself the message as well for the youth of India. His teachings will always stay relevant.


Crumble, as all things beautiful do,

Rumble and roar, like the sound of the earth


Scars on your skin, through and through

Stories of the grand canyon's birth


Lord of the skies, ruling the clouds

The oceans lay in anarchy and vain,

Like your rose covered sapphire shroud,

Truly, money isn't all in life to gain.


Flames, they rose from the rim,

Singing and dancing around you.

No flowers thrown, to honour your hymn,

They let the cackles of fire absorb you.


The burning stench of the pyre,

The wood, turning to ash,

Your bones in merciless fire,

Which denies all a second chance.


Where life ends,

But regrets remain endless.

All of life's seconds spent,

Working for virtually nothing important, it's pointless.


Forgotten, will this soul be,

Forgotten, as the winds of the past.

What exactly does life really mean,

One realises at last.


Could have worked for something more

More than personal gain.

Could have done more than keeping score,

With others on the same train


We could seek the absolute truth,

The endless beauty in the stars and the moon,

Lets pledge to use our youth,

To let the world flourish soon.
