30th January in Swami Vivekananda Life

30 January :
 
30 Jan 1896 : 'Davenport Daily Republican' newspaper writes Swami Vivekananda as 'An Oriental God in New York' - Crowds throng about him day and evening,...and for the moment Swami Vivekananda reigns.
 
30 Jan 1897 : In a letter to Mary Hale, Swami Vivekananda writes from Ramnad- Madras and Calcutta are on the tiptoe of expectation as if the whole nation is rising to honour me. So you see, Mary, I am on the very height of my destiny, yet the mind turns to quietness and peace, to the days we had in Chicago, of rest, of peace, and love; and that is why I write just now, and may this find you all in health and peace!
 
30 Jan 1898 : Swami Vivekananda wrote to Bhagini Nivedita : This is to introduce Prof. M. Gupta, who has been already introduced to you on board the boat that brought you over to shore. He has very kindly consented to devote an hour or more every day to teach you Bengali. I need not state that he is a genuine, good and great soul.
