Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PILANI, India - Jan 12, 2017 - The ethereal sage Swami Vivekananda who was the original feminist and the first among spiritual leaders in modern times to speak for the masses is an icon not only in India yesterday but also India today and India Tomorrow. National Youth Day is celebrated on 12 January every year in India to commemorate the birthday of Swami Vivekananda.
Right from its inception, Smt Jamuna Mishra Academy – JMA Pilani has embarked on a rich tradition of celebrating various days of national and international significance. The school which is one among the top ranking schools in Pilani today celebrated the National youth Day on 12 January 2017 to commemorate the 154 birthday of Swami Vivekananda who became globally known after his famous address at Parliament of Religions held in Chicago in 1893 which begins with the thundering lines “Sisters and Brothers of America”. After Miss Kushi of Class 9 read out the same speech in the school assembly, there was a resounding round of applause.
The Thinker – Saint Swami Vivekananda played a stellar role in ending India’s cultural isolation from the rest of the world thus becoming India’s first great cultural ambassador to the West. As much as Swamiji wanted the westerners to learn spirituality from the Indians, he wanted Indians to learn from westerners not only science and technology but also humanism by adopting ideas of individual freedom, social equality and justice and respect for women. Principal Mrs Booma Natarajan conducted a quiz on biography of Swami Vivekananda. The celebrations ended with a career counseling session conducted by BK Birla Institute of Engineering and Technology BKBIET Pilani.
