Our current PM Narendra Modi has long been a self-proclaimed follower of Swami Vivekananda and his beliefs. Swami Vivekananda was one of the first people to put India on the map with his talks about religion, its practice and understanding the opportunities that youths bring along. Thus, it is apt that National Youth Day is celebrated on the birthday of the visionary Swami.
On the occasion, the PM Modi tweeted his favourite anecdotes and called on the youth of the micro-blogging site to share their favourites as well. He even went a step further and promised to retweet the ones he likes.
As a parting note, Vaikundarajan observes “It is interesting to know that Swami Vivekananda was named Narendra at the time of birth.”
