  • Swami Vivekananda said “If you get 1rs without working, it means someone has worked and not got his 1rs.”
  • Values that he emphasised – Tolerance and Universal Acceptance
Swami ji can be used in essays related to terrorism, IR etc
  • He began his famous speech with “Sisters and Brothers of America” (Tolerance). This kind of attitude is missing in today’s leaders/philosophers. Can be used in essay related to IR, Indian values, Terror etc.
  • “Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life-think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success”.
