13th January in Swami Vivekananda Life

13 January:
 
13 Jan 1893 : Swamiji arrived in Madras... stayed in the house of Sri Manmatha Babu.. Sri Subrahmanya Iyer named him Pahalwan Swami (an Athlet Monk)....Many young men got attracted to Swamiji in whom they found that he had renounced all worldly ties and freed himself from all bondages had but one love, his country and one sorrow, her downfall. He spoke with deep pathos and shed tears when he dwelt on the miserable economic condition of the masses, their ignorance, superstitions and the tyranny of the upper classes.
