Today is the birthday of Swami Vivekananda, the great scholar-philosopher and thinker who wanted to reinvent India with his revolutionary and intense ideas that awaken the souls and minds to action and give a clarion call for a reformed nation. Swami Vivekananda is a pillar of motivation for the youth of India and wanted women of India to bear courage and self-confidence. His ideas about religion and staunch belief in the greatness of Hinduism have placed him in a plane of thoughts that are matchless in the arena of philosophical thinking. No wonder,he has been acknowledged internationally as a great man with deep thoughts of value.

Vivekananda's birthday is commemorated as National Youth Day in India.
