Salient Points of PM Narendra Modi’s address at the students’ convention on the theme of ‘Young India, New India’ on 11 Sep, 2017

  • Today is 9/11…this day became widely spoken about after 2001 but there was another 9/11 of 1893 which we remember.
  • Just with a few words, a youngster from India won over the world and showed the world the power of oneness
  • The 9/11 of 1893 was about love, harmony and brotherhood
  • Swami Vivekananda raised his voice against the social evils that has entered our society
  • Swami Vivekananda said that only rituals will not connect an individual to divinity…he said ‘Jan Seva is Prabhu Seva’
  • More than being in search of a Guru, Swami Vivekananda was in search of the truth
  • Swami Vivekananda did not believe in sermonising. His ideas & idealism paved way for an institutional framework via Ramakrishna Mission
  • I want to specially mention all those people who are working tirelessly to keep India clean
  • The correspondence between Swami Vivekananda and Jamsetji Tata will show the concern Swami JI had towards India’s self-reliance
  • Both knowledge and skills are equally important
  • Swami Vivekananda had given the concept of ‘One Asia.’ He said that the solutions to the world’s problems will come from Asia
  • Student organisations, while campaigning for university elections should give more importance to cleanliness
  • There is no better place for creativity and innovation than university campuses|
  • There is no life without creativity. Let our creativity also strengthen our nation & fulfil the aspirations of our people
  • India is changing, India’s standing at the global stage is rising and this is due to Jan Shakti
