A simple boy from an aristocratic family of North Calcutta, Narendranath Dutta, more commonly known as Swami Vivekananda, grew up to inspire generations and became the spiritual guide for an entire nation and even beyond. The most admired Hindu monk of the modern era, Swamiji spread the words of humanity and brotherhood among all men and women and called for global integrity through spiritual upliftment.

 National Youth Day is celebrated on 12 January every year on the birthday of Swami Vivekananda.
