The present day scenario of our country with ever deteriorating and degrading human behavior, uninterrupted exponential growth in the crimes is really the matter of grave concerns. With the growth in the concept of globalization, aimed at bringing close the humanity to one and other, the scenario has taken a negative turn around. One man has become the dreadful enemy of the other.

In this materialistic world where greed, lust and hunger for power is overriding our ambitions, there is no sign of peace anywhere, in any corner of the world. These present day crisis does not ask for just brooding over them, they need and are waiting for their resolution. Since a child is the future of the nation, we must focus on their overall development.

They must grow with all the possible virtues necessary for good living and life, decorated with the pearls of self contentment and holistic development. By proving proper base and direction from this stage of life we can hope for a peaceful society and peaceful country as a whole. VK is wholeheartedly and tirelessly working towards this motto to make this country and the world at large a better place to live in.

Vivekananda Kendra, Kanyakumari observed ‘Vishva Bandhutva Diwas’ or ‘Universal Brotherhood Day’ last Sunday to mark the 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda’s memorable Chicago address on 11th September, 1893. The event was observed a day in advance to coincide with the weekend in view of the audience’s convenience.

In Pochanpur, Delhi, a cultural evening was organised in the amphitheater of a local temple. In attendance were Colonel (Retired) Jaibans Singh, a reputed analyst of Indian defence and security affairs and Lok Sabha Secretary Dr. DK Bhalla.

Both the villagers and the city dwellers from nearby urban Dwarka turned up in huge numbers to witness the spectacular show put on by the kids from at least three Dwarka schools and one Delhi University college.

The evening was inaugurated with a Sanskrit peace invocation, followed by ceremonial lamp lighting and a dance performance in honour of Lord Ganesha.

The wide array of cultural fare on offer included street theatre, poetry recital, orchestra, folk dance and a jam session by a band. Ch. Ramkaran Solanki, Pradhan of Palam Khap, under whose ambit Pochanpur village falls, gave the thank you note on behalf of the villagers.

In the spirit of Swamiji’s message of unity, Dr. Jetti Alfred Oliver, the current President of Church History Association of India (CHAI), was invited to speak on interfaith harmony.

Swami Vivekananda ji believed that “Prayer is the only means of bringing about orderliness and peace and repose in our daily acts." Our religions too point the same to us. According to him, “Salvation of the Gita is perfect peace.” We all shall strive to pray for global peace.

Let us expand our horizons to bring peace in disturbed regions worldwide. Swami Ji’s mission Universal Brotherhood let that be our sole objective said Yajin Bhatt.
