The celebration was inaugurated by the Chief Guest Anshul Garg, Chief Executive Officer, Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board (SMVDSB).
In his opening remarks, Chief Guest Anshul Garg said that Swami Vivekananda believed that if human beings are persistent enough, they have the potential to overcome any hurdle, when he said, “Arise! Awake! And stop not until the goal is reached”.
This is a golden teaching by Swami Vivekananda where he insisted that persistence is the only key to success, he added.
He also exemplified the 1893 World Parliament of Religions in Chicago where Vivekananda represented and delivered his famous sayings on self-confidence, education and success, religion, and many more.
While acknowledging the unparalleled emotional connection with the Ramakrishna Mission, Mr Garg lauded the mission for emphasizing the importance of blending tradition with modernity.
He said that the hallmark of Vivekananda’s doctrine is that while it is deeply embedded in India’s past heritage, at the same time, it envisages the vision of future India several decades ahead.
Terming Youth as one of the greatest demographic dividend, Mr Garg observed that about 50 percent of the population of India is below the age of 30 years and are capable of producing nectar of growth and development for the country in the next 25 years termed as Amritkaal by the Hon’ble Prime Minister.
