Celebrate India – Celebrate Vivekananda: Chicago Speech Day – Lecture by Smt. Bharathi Bhaskar

When the question “What was the greatest speech ever?” was posed to six prominent writers by Intelligent Life, the culture-technology- lifestyle sibling of The Economist, Mark Tully, BBC’s former bereau chief for India, had chosen Swami Vivekananda’s speech at the first World’s Parliament of Religion in Chicago in 1893.

Referring to the New York Herald’s declaration that “Vivekananda is undoubtedly the greatest figure in the Parliament of Religions”, Tully noted that “He was relevant then and is relevant today for his constant affirmation that all religions are paths to God, and his call for tolerance.”

Through this extempore speech of 458 words, Swami Vivekananda rekindled the drooping spirit of his co-religionists through his proud declarations, “I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance” and placed the ideals of India and her culture on a high pedestal for the world to appreciate and assimilate.

To commemorate the cultural and religious renaissance initiated by Swami Vivekananda, we conducted a programme on 11 September 2014 at the Vivekananda Cultural Centre. A 140 feet long banner was put up on the marina beach and more than 1000 people wrote Swamiji’s sayings on them. Sri Crazy Mohan, a popular Cine Artiste signed the first quotation. Towards the evening, the whole wall was filled with quotations. A programme was organised at 5:30 PM with Bhajans by Vivekananda Vidyalaya students, a rendition of the Chicago speech and a video display on the Chicago lecture.
