15th January in Swami Vivekananda Life

15 January

15 Jan 1897 : Swamiji reached Colmobo after conquering the West.
About His reception, he had foretold in Detroit : India mus listen to me! I shall shake India to her foundations! I shall send an electric thrill through her national veins! Wait! You shall see how India will receive me. It is India, my own India, that knows how to appreciate that which I have given so freely here with my life's blood, as the spirit of Vedanta. India will receive me in triumph.
 
15 Jan 1901 : Swamiji writes to Sri E T Sturdy from Mayavati on passing away of Mrs Sturdy : This life is full of shocks, but the effects pass away anyhow, that is the hope.
