A book on Swami Vivekananda titled अमृत काल में स्वामी विवेकानंद की प्रासंगिकता (Amrit Kaal Mein Swami Vivekananda Ki Prasangikta) which covers different aspects of Life and Message of Swami Vivekananda was released at Panchkula City, Haryana.
Nikhil Yadav, Prant Yuva Pramukh, Vivekananda Kendra, Uttar Prant, and a Research Scholar at Jawaharlal Nehru Univerity, New Delhi, have authored the book. The event took place at the Inside Motion Pictures and Inside Institute of Filmmaking office at Sector 21, Panchkula, which several people attended.
According to the Author Nikhil Yadav, the book deliberates on the work and thoughts of Swami Vivekananda and their relevance to Bharat in the Amrit Kaal. On the one hand, this book will make its readers aware of Swami Vivekananda’s vision of an awakened India, while on the other, it seeks to throw light on the relevance of Swamiji in the lives of the youth.
The appropriateness of essential topics like his “Message of World Brotherhood” and the “Plague Manifesto” written during the Bengal pandemic have been included in the book.
The book contains many exciting incidents and information related to Swamiji’s life, which takes us closer to him and dispels many misconceptions.
Swamiji has been shown to have influenced many great personalities during and after his lifetime, including Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Sister Nivedita, Mahatma Gandhi, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, and Narendra Modi. Apart from this, there is a theme of “Yoga” and “Unity in Diversity of India.” Along with Swamiji’s contribution, an attempt has been made to provide readers with answers to the misconceptions related to these subjects.
The last chapter discusses the ideological footprint of Swami Vivekananda in G20 countries. The book is published by Vivekananda Kendra, Hindi Prakashan Vibhag.
Nikhil Yadav said that he is delighted since the book was launched in the presence of his family. His Mother, Anita Yadav, father, Suresh Kumar Yadav, and brother, Akhil Kumar Yadav ( InsideAKY), were present at the event. Akhil Yadav also added that he lived in Panchkula from 1999 to 2014 and studied in Panchkula and Chandigarh. Later, he went to Delhi to pursue higher education.
