Today is 151st Birthday of Swami Vivekananda, one of those priceless beings one longs to have back again. We truly need some of his shadows at-least, if not him, to glorify this country again.
He took birth in a time when we Hindus judged human beings not by their humanity, but by everything else- their caste, creed, religion, gender… every wrong measuring stick.
He reminded us the true meaning of Hinduism- a religion that firmly believes in equality of human beings, he brushed away the moss and dirt gathered by thousands years of age and gave its true form to us.
That was not all, he left his golden trail for thousands of youngsters to follow, his blessings still remain with students of the institutions he started when he was around.
May his soul rest in peace and we stay blessed by his divine blessings.
