Oneness is the secret of everything except turtles

Here is a quote of Swami Vivekananda found on the website of the Government of Gujarat, : http://vivekananda.gujarat.gov.in/quotes.aspx.

All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.
Swami Vivekananda

*If oneness is the secret of everything, how could Vivekananda find a difference between American turtles and Indian turtles? How could he distinguish between chicken and ice creams? How could he distinguish between cigars and hari-bhari luchies?

Swami Vivekananda in his letter dated 12th Dec. 1901 (six months before his death), wrote to Ms. Christina Greenstidel ( Christine ), from Belur Math.

This is our best season for eating turtles, but they are all black. The green [ones] can only be found in America. Alas! I am prevented from the taste of meat. ... ".


Or did Vivekananda lose his philosophy of oneness of the world philosophy?

*If oneness is the secret of everything, how could Vivekananda find a difference between the great yankee land and the rotten corpse he called India?

*Quotes are for quoting. Facts do not support quotes. Vir chand Gandhi toured United States at the same time as Vivekananda. Virchand Gandhi sent two shiploads of wheat for famine relief in India. Vivekananda gave two shiploads of quotes!

Why does not Narendra Modi think of Virchand Gandhi as a role-model instead of whimscal Vivekananda?

Why did Gujarat forget its own son virchand Gandhi?

*Mr. Narendra Modi may not know that Swami Vivekananda supported beef-eating!
