Wake Up Bharat ! Enlighten the World !
Why was the West electified when Swami Vivekananda addressed the parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893 and in the course of his subsequent tour of the US and Europe? What was his message to us - contained in his letters and speeches delivered from Colombo to Almora? The 150 Birth Anniversary Celebrations of Swami Vivekananda will be a historic landmark for Bharat, nay for the entire world. What marks this particular celebration is the deep churning that will take place - the global scenario and Bharat's role in it. It will mark a revisiting of Swami Vivekananda's life and message and necessarily, Bharat's mission given to it by her Rishis of yore - Krinvanto Vishwam Aryam - 'Make the whole world noble'. The motto of the Celebrations is Wake up, Bharat! Enlighten the world !! In three chapters, the present book examines and elaborates the scientific bases of this motto. It proves beyond doubt that Bharat's vision, the vision of Oneness of existence and spreading that message - the raison d'etre of her existence - is the only wise and sustainable way to inclusive peace, harmony and development.
