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.
