A nation-builder, an inspiration

Swami Vivekananda’s teachings have become all the more relevant today in the wake of attempts by fissiparous forces to impede progress.

“Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached”, this shloka from the Upanishads popularised by Swami Vivekananda should be an inspiration to every Indian. It is particularly relevant for the youth of today to build a New India through motivation, education and dedication.
The time has never been more opportune than now for India to realise its true potential by unleashing the energies of the youth, who constitute about 65 per cent of the country’s population. India is already one of the leading global IT players with the services sector contributing hugely to the country’s GDP. However, for multi-sectoral growth, rapid strides need to be made in manufacturing, agriculture, energy and infrastructure so that the country becomes the third largest economy much earlier than the projected 10-15 years.
