Dear Friends,

JAI Hind!




          In these days when demonitisation has been hitting the headline, it was good to see a piece on VIVEKANANANAND’s INFUENCE ON BOSE” appearing in the prestigious daily of Delhi, namely, The Statesman of December 9, 2016 (Copy attached).
  We had earlier known Netaji having said had he (Swami Vivekandanda) been living, I would have been at his feet. These two great men of history had a lot ideas in common, such as, both believed in humanatarian approach in solving crises. Many of us did not know that like Netaji, Swamiji was also influenced by the success of the Soviet Russia’ approach in solving the problems of poverty, illiteracy and backwardness.
          As the President of the Haripur Congress, Netaji had set up , as early as in 1938, a National Planning Commission with Nehru as its President. That showed how constructive and forward- looking were these two men of history. The present day Planning Commission, with the incumbent President as the figurative Chairman, the Vice Chairman carrying on the job, is a post-Independent day development. Incidentally Nehru had also been influenced by the Communist Soviet Russia.
          Going forward further, both Swamiji and Netaji believed in economic reconstruction and industrialisation according to modern scientific and technological methods. In all these Nataji, like Swamiji, wanted moral progress rather material progress.May we add here that moral progress is the sine- quanon with India?
Moral, rather spiritual virtues have been an important criterion in this land of rishis and munis like Swami. Vivekanda and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.

          Well Friends, we hope you will agree with us that India would have been a much better country if we had followed what these two great men of history had thought for the motherland. Let us take this opportunity to pay our respectful pronams to these two rishis.
   We hope you would join us in thanking the writers Saroj and Sudeshna Gupta for having penned down such an excellent piece. We also thank the Editor of the Statesman for including this write-up at a time when a lot more things including demonetisation and wars are hogging the headlines these days, who will have the time to read such piece Vivekanada and Netaji.




   Your sevak,

        D.C. Nath
