Swami Vivekananda Quotes

According to Gregorian Calendar Swami Vivekananda was born on January 12, 1863 into an aristocratic Bengali family of Calcutta. However, his birthday is celebrated according to Hindu calendar and this day is known as Swami Vivekananda Jayanti. In 1984 the government of India decided to observe Swami Vivekananda’s Gregorian date of birth as National Youth Day. Hence National Youth Day of India is celebrated each year on January 12 since 1985.
