Swami Vivekananda: A legacy denied
India Forum: Comments, Opinion - Information Resource
News Summary: Vivekananda was the first Indian who impacted the West despite criticizing Christianity and asserting Hindu superiority. Unlike Gandhis irrationality in considering Western civilization to be a spurious antithesis of the pure Indian counterpart despite himself imitating the ideas of Christ, Rosseau and Tolstoy; Vivekananda cherished the values and achievements of both despite the influence of no foreign thinker on him. His influence on Sri Aurobindo who represents the last viable fusion of the E.....read more in: Swami Vivekananda: A legacy denied

What is swami vivekananda legacy that needs to be defined and recognized? Dayanand Sarswati, founder of Aryasmaj, at least, established educational institutions in India.
33 S.Ghosh on Nov-25 :

Gandhi said, Ramayana and Mahabharata are just stories. Nehru disregarded these books.
Indian people should and must reject Gandhi completely, knowing that he was imposed upon India by the British and the main British agent at that time Sir Gokhale.

32 Ayan on Nov-25 :

It is to be noted that many eminent people of India including M.K. Gandhi and J.L Nehru had recalled the teachings of Swami Vivekananda in their lifetime.What these self declared seculars tell doesnot matter.Even I have not properly known of Vivekananda in my school days.The more i grew up the more i came to know about him.Every man has Vivekananda within him the only thing he needs is to realise him.Get out of the dark and rely what your mind says not on the pen of some writers who give their own judgements.
31 ninamishra on Sep-04 :

Swami Dev Prakash Maharaj ji is the symbol of simplicity and have a heart filled with mercy and affection for the poor and needy ones. He is a universal well wisher in true sense as his mercy and blessings showers alike on all human beings irrespective of religious path followed by the person.

Namaskar SauravJi,

I cam across your article while I was searching for Vivekananda"s influence on the national freedom struggle leaders.Just to tell you,right now I am studying History.Finding no mention of Vivekananda in Bipin Chandra"s "India"s struggle for independence",I tried to find it on net.
Yours is a very well written article on the subject,especially that line from Shri Ram Swarup ji touched me.It is so true.

Thanks You again,
Gaurav

Embassy of India hosted a cultural event at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Swami Vivekananda. To view photos visit americanbazaaronline.com/2013/10/25/swami-vivekanandas-150th-birth-anniversary-celebrated/
27 S.Ghosh on Aug-07 :

those who are denied their proper place in the official history of India became the most celebrated Heros of India: Rana Pratap, Shivaji, Jhansi Ki Rani, Subhas Chandra Bose, Vivekananda.

Who really care to day about Ugly Gandhi and his Gandha followers!!!
In india, people make jokes about them.

A thoughtful discussion of how Swami Vivekananda"s legacy is being challenged or even denied in contemporary India. It will be useful for a paper I am working on presently. You mention (1) Ramachandra Guha, a secular historian considers "behind every thinking Indian there is either a Marxist or a Gandhian" and (2) critics like Jyotirmaya Sharma believe Vivekananda"s discourse on "Hindu superiority" represents a dangerous "threat" to the "secular" fabric of the nationian" I would like to have references to these two observations. Thanks,

Greatness of swamiji lies in his legacy and teachings , he was a born hero , hats off to him.

Sir,
It is indeed true that Vivekananda is always being denied in India in all fields related.....
I being a student, remembers when we used to study history in our ICSE course, there was less than a proper line mentioning about Vivekananda and that book has been the most prior to all students studying under CISCE Board!...
This is just a small example from my part. I remember a quote from the Gita,"Do thine duty, thy reward not concerned."this describes very well the contribution of Swamiji towards India and what india is Giving in return to the Swami.

This is a very well written article and is absolutely true!
22 Mo on Dec-20 :

>>Ananda Ganesh V wrote: If at all Gandhi has threw out Bengalis from the upper layers of Congress, then it is to allow people from all other states to grow naturally without nepotism.

Not so. Not logical at all. That"s not how decisions are to be made.
Merit, merit, merit alone should matter and not the state of origin.
When Gandhi himself backstabbed Netaji he forfeits the judgment capability
to nurture leadership. If you think coterie style of leadership and backbiting and not standing by his own principles is leadership,
then we have nothing further to speak about. Read about how Gandhi
ignored freedom-fighter Jatin Das"s sacrifice in non-violent struggle. Read about his third rate views ( and lack of it ) during INA soldiers" trials.
So he condemns both non-violent struggle and vociferous struggle. Insane, cowardly leadership. Indians need to come out of their stupor.


21 Prof. (Dr.) Sudhiran on Dec-20 :

An excellent piece of article should an eye opener to many
20 Ananda Ganesh V on Dec-11 :


I completely agree with your ideas about why and how Swami ji being put aside by media and powerful people of India. But, your views of Gandhi require a little more study.

If at all Gandhi has threw out Bengalis from the upper layers of Congress, then it is to allow people from all other states to grow naturally without nepotism.

To make a party, a movement to spread nation-wide, it should have leaders from all the states of India.

Neta ji is, my pranams to him, a greatest son of India, and every Indian is devoted to him. But, he too supported Islamic fundamentalists and in many ways "secular".

There are plenty of chances that your valuable article is taken as a Bengali babu"s prejudice. Please be wary of that.

Otherwise, I completely in support of your arguments.

19 Anup Gupta on Feb-18 :

You very good and timely article. Let Ramchandra Guha and other ignore the contribution of Swamijee but 100 of boys and girls are working silently for the vdestitute and deprived people of our country. Their Pole Star is Swamijee.
18 A.Moron on Oct-19 :

Why and how Gandhi became the leader of the Congress and had managed to expell everyone else???

Any idea???

17 Mo on Oct-18 :

Ghosh, do you think Gandhi was insecure
of Netaji ? Did he nurse inferiority complex against
the latter ? The less said about jokerlal chamcha the
better. I will ignore him.

All this is very odd because Netaji had highest
interest of unifying kind, without holding
grudge against anyone, including his detractors.
For example he named two brigades of INA after Gandhi and Nehru.
That is the calibre and class of confident leadership.


16 S.Ghosh on Oct-18 :

Condoling the demise of Marxist patriarch Jyoti Basu, leading NRI industrialist Lord Swraj Paul said the veteran leader was a "great Prime Minister India never had"

Basu, was offered the Prime Minister"s chair in 1996 in the then United Front coalition government but his party leaders all from South India refused to allow him to accept it.


Similarly,
Swami Vivekananda, Netaji Subhas were ignored.

That is also true about the freedom fighters like Surendranath Banerjee, Chittaranjan Das, Bipin Pal, very few today even know their names.

Revolutionaries like Surya Sen, Jatin Das, and others are unknown today.

After Gandhi took over The Congress party without any election in 1919, he had successfully expelled each and every prominent Bengali from the upper layer of The Congress.

Nehru, Gandhi, Patel very gladly partitioned Bengal.

Nehru and Patel very gladly made a treaty with Liaqat Ali to expell all Hindu Bengali refugees from India.

15 arpu on Oct-18 :

While Gandhiji was for India and his movement was more for the political freedom and national integrity,Swamijis was for all of humanity and was spiritual.
14 Mo on Aug-04 :

I"m sure that Netaji"s image and
fame in India will last forever. Inspite of jokerlal
mechanisations, Netaji ranks pretty high, in most circles,
higher than Gandhi.

As for Swami Vivekananda,
he is revered all over India, equally by
the elite if not more.

My take on legacies of these two greats
is that they were unique, sincere, brilliant and
not easy to emulate.

Regarding Jyoti Basu, we are talking about junk..
he was unfit to occupy PM post, and same applies
to all commies.
