Swami Vivekanand’s thoughts on Youths:

Swami Vivekanand was born on twelfth Jan 1863. Youth and India at that time as a country were underdeveloped. India did not get freedom and hence youth's roles were very important for the country. Youth is considered the future of the country. So if the base of the youth is developed at a very younger age, it benefits the whole country in future.

Swami Vivekanand highlighted the importance of the contribution of youth to the country. Swami Vivekanand is known for thinking out of the box and speaking of his mind. He explained how to channelize the youth's energy and potential of the youth into concrete concepts. His outstanding speeches always motivated the country and youth.
