In Swami Vivekananda's world view, so engrained was the spirit or service and renunciation in our DNA that we will not awaken to serve Indians alone but will work for the betterment of the entire humankind. Seeing the various problems that plague the world today, one will understand the importance of Swamiji's words. It is because India has been unable to occupy what rightfully belongs to her, that the world is suffering from the menace of terrorism, degradation of the environment and a topsy-turvy economy.
A famous philosopher once said, "Who lives if India dies? Who dies if India lives?" With freedom came an opportunity to take India to the pedestal of world leadership Sri Aurobindo said and this is what we must do in the 21st century. We may excel individually in every field but till we, as a nation, demonstrate our collective strength we would be unable to serve mankind, which will go against our destiny. Take the example of a football match- the common aim is to score more goals than the opposite team but the role of each player is different. There is no point if the goalkeeper leaves his stipulated place and runs ahead. Just like that we must have our collective goal clear in sight; the role of each one of us in attaining that goal varies. When we play our part with dedication, the results will be for everyone to see.
Friends, I can say with great conviction that it is possible to achieve Swami Vivekananda's vision of a glorious India!..... Let us work together tirelessly and play our part in realizing Swami Vivekananda's dreams. This is the best gift we can give to this proud son who consecrated our land!
The main theme of my life is to take the message of Sanatana Dharma to every home and pave the way for launching, in a big way, the man-making programme preached and envisaged by great seers like Swami Vivekananda. - Mananeeya Eknathji
