Asian Scene- 150th Anniversary Swami Vivekananda Special, 14th January 2014- The Star

The grand 150th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda came to an end on Sunday 12th January at the Arya Samaj’s M.D. Bhavan. There was a cultural programme that was made up of religious songs and dances of the Hindu culture including Garba, Dandia and a patriotic song to India, home of Swami Vivekananda. This young man-made an impact in the West when he introduced yoga to them and the various teachings of Ramayan and Mahabharat. But what stands out till today and will continue is that the young grew up learning from his teachings and experience because he believed that the youth were the future. Now the elderly are passing on this to their children who continue to learn from his lessons which encompass humanity, good deeds and peace.

The various teams including the Hindu Swayamsewak Sangh have worked tirelessly to make the year-long anniversary celebrations in the Kenya very outstanding. At the event was the International coordinator for the anniversary Suamitra Gokhle, based in Pennsylvania, USA. He especially mentioned that “Swami Vivekananda’s main mission was to uplift the masses of India and give the country recognition across the borders”. A well-coordinated finale and every member of the audience received a souvenir which was a special Kenya issue of the celebrations called “Amar Bharti”.

Various members from the Hindu Council of Kenya attended, including the Nominated M.P. Hon. Sunjeev Kaur Birdi.
