"You are the Pure One; awake and arise, O mighty one, this sleep does not become you. Awake and arise, it does not befit you. Think not that you are weak and miserable. Almighty, arise and awake, and manifest your own nature. It is not fitting that you think yourself a sinner. It is not fitting that you think yourself weak. Say that to the world, say it to yourselves, and see what a practical result comes, see how with an electric flash everything is manifested, how everything is changed. Tell that to mankind, and show them their power. Then we shall learn how to apply it in our daily lives."  -- Swami Vivekananda

The Vision of a Real Youth Movement

What we need today is thinking on a macro scale... of the national problem. NGO's can do something indeed on a micro scale... yet the problem is national and the solution must be national too. The intelligent and the principled has this task ahead: placing their own centres of gravity at the centre of gravity of the nation. The nation, the Motherland - the millions of deprived people of this land - this must be the main concern. Character has be moulded that way. That is the vision of a real youth movement.

Informal Meet at the ISI

We had a nice informal discussion at the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, with its research scholars on 16 March. The meeting started a few minutes after 6.30 pm and continued for nearly 2 hours. The subject was a serious one: the condition of children in our country and the work before us. Almost all of the 22 or 23 students took active part in the discussion. They also inquired about the Mahamandal. Some of these scholars are planning to visit a few centres of the Mahamandal, where some work is going on among the most deprived sections of society. The organizer was the ever-smiling Raju Maiti, himself a Ph.D. student in Applied Statistics.

The Annual All India Camp of the Mahamandal

The 44th Annual All India Youth Training Camp of the Akhil Bharat Vivekananda Yuva Mahamandal was held from 25 to 30 December 2010 at Gangadharpur Shikshan Mandir B. Ed. College, Gangadharpur, Dist. Howrah, West Bengal. The aim of the camp was to infuse into the youth the ideas of self-development (i.e. character-building), social concern and citizenship, service to the nation and national integration, harmony of religions, ideal and organization, and the way to nation-building, generally drawn from the teachings of Swami Vivekananda. The number of campers was 1240, and they came from West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The campers included students and teachers of schools, colleges, and universities, engineers, physicians, lawyers, service-holders, businessmen, farmers, workers, and so on. They spoke in different languages, and they belonged to different religions.
Revered Srimat Swami Smarananandaji Maharaj, Vice President, Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission, Belur, inaugurated the camp on 25 December at 4-50 pm by hoisting the flag of the Mahamandal.
