Shri Nikhil Yadav, Prant Yuva Pramukh, Vivekananda Kendra, Uttar Pradesh addressing at the Conclave
To celebrate the 160th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda, “Pancham Dham Conclave – Yuva Evam Sanatan Sanskar” was organized at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi, on 13th January 2023. Various leading intellectuals delivered their lectures in the conclave on the life and teachings of Swami Vivekananda.
While speaking in the last session of the conclave, Shri Nikhil Yadav, Prant Yuva Pramukh, Vivekananda Kendra, Uttar Prant said “Swami Vivekananda was the backbone behind the Indian Freedom movement. He directly and indirectly inspired freedom fighters in the 19th and 20th centuries, including Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Hemchandra Ghosh, and Sister Nivedita, among others. His speeches and writings encouraged the Indian Youth to participate in the Freedom movement. However, History and Historians have portrayed him merely as a religious or spiritual leader.” Several intellectuals from Delhi-NCR attended the conclave.
