Did Ms. Sushma Swaraj read Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda?

YBREMS
Ref: Minutes of the 1st Meeting of the National Committee for commemoration of 150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda held under the Chairmanship of Hon'ble Prime Minister on 20th May 2010 at 5.00 PM at 7 Race Course Road, New Delhi.

This is freely available on the net.




Smt. Sushma Swaraj supported the proposals received and suggested that the youth should be involved in a big way, with the commemorative programmes like essay competitions and debates and that `The Complete Works of Swamiji' should be given as prizes to the winners and also to the participants.


YBREMS:
One question haunts me: Did Sushma Swaraj read the Complete Works? Or was she just adding her samidha (a small piece of wood) to the agni (fire) in the sacrifice?


Printing the Complete Works costs millions.
Our students have little time to read school, college and University text books. They read selected questions from guides by rote.
When will they read the Complete Works?



When will they read Vivekananda's letters addressed to Ms. Christina Greenstidel?


When will they know the differences between the American turtles and the Indian turtles?


When will they know how to cook and taste Shad fish?


What will they do, if their nerves get heated up, just as Vivekananda's nerves got heated up?


When will they know why or how Vivekananda said "My karma" to a London Sanskrit scholar called Sturdy?


When will they know that the Great Swamiji was against social reforms!


When will they know that Vivekananda called Ramanuja and Shankara were just Pandits!


When will they know that this Great Swami who spoke of Patanjali Yoga was an addict of tobacco?


When will they know that Swamiji called that India was a country full of lazy rogues!


When will they know that Swamiji called that India was a rotten corpse and a jelly fish?


When will they know that Swamiji begged Rajas for tiger skins, to gift them to white donors!


When will they know that Swami always preferred cool Centers like Ooty, Almora and hated Malarial places like Calcutta?


When will they know that Veerchand Gandhi (Jaina representative) who went to Chicago sent a shipload of wheat and Rs.40,000 for drought victims whereas Vivekananda sent just clippings of his own news?


When will they know that Vivekananda asked his co-disciple Akhandananda to: leave the peasants and labourers to look to their own problems?


When will they know that Vivekananda did not travel bare foot as is made out?


When will they know that Swamiji declared that : India cannot yet produce great women- she must borrow them from other nations. Sushma Swaraj and Brinda Karat should particularly know this. For this reason only did Indians borrow Ms. Sonia Gandhi from Italy?


When will they know that this Great Patriot who inspired Indian freedom fighters, regretted that he could not attend Queen Victoria's Silver Jubilee because doctors prevented him?


When will they know that Vivekananda went on declaring himself "Paramahamsa" wherever he went and use it as an excuse for consuming non-veg?


When will they know that Swami wrote: Smritis and Puranas are productions of men of limited intelligence?


When will they know that Swamiji wrote to Ms. Christina: CHRISTINA - WE WILL HAVE A HOT TIME IN THIS OLD TOWN ?


When will they know that this great fighter against superstions wrote to Ms. Christina that they sacrificed a goat, and burst fireworks as a part of Durga PUja?


When will they know that this great thinker wrote that Vegetarians would always think about death!


When will they know that Vivekananda left to USA in a first class voyage, with pockets full and that he pestered Alasinga to send money ? (Many think that Vivekananda went to US penniless.)


When will they know that Vivekananda was sad that he could not rear chicken because it was a taboo in Bengal?


When will they know: that Vivekananda declared that the inhabitants of the slums of Europe and America were brutes?


When will they know : that Vivekananda asked his American hosts to place him in costly hotels?


When will they know that Swamiji stayed at a resort with a Casino and taught yoga to drunken women?


When will they know : that Vivekananda wanted to settle down in Yankee land!


Will the winners and participants care to know that Swamiji called India "dirtiest and unhealthiest hole in the world"?

This list is incomplete.


Did Ms. Sushma Swaraj know that her patriot Swami called India the "dirtiest and unhealthiest hole in the world"? I wish Ms. Sushma Swaraj to read the Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda thoroughly!
