Modi invokes Vivekananda to spread message of harmony

NEW DELHI: Calling upon the youth to "let our creativity also strengthen our nation and fulfil the aspirations of our people," Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday batted for innovation and promoting skills towards building a modern India.

The Prime Minister was addressing a students' convention to mark the 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda's address at the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago and BJP ideologue Deendayal Upadhyaya's centenary celebrations on the theme- "Young India, New India".

Modi began by saying that the biggest takeaway from Swami Vivekananda's speech of September 11, 1893 was the message of love, harmony and universal brotherhood. He reminded the youth that public service is the highest service. "Swami Vivekananda said that only rituals will not connect an individual to divinity...," he said, adding "Jan Seva is Prabhu Seva". "More than being in search of a Guru, Swami Vivekananda was in search of the truth," said the PM.
