Movie on Swami Vivekananda !!

Vivekananda movie at Open Air Theatre of IIT Madras.
On 11th September, 2012, to commemorate the  historic speech of Swami Vivekananda, here at IIT M, VSC organised screening of the movie "Vivekananda by Vivekananda" at 'Open Air Theater' . Movie went on from 8 PM to 10 PM, with a short break. It was very gratifying for all VSC volunteers, for the spirit, with which, student community received the movie screening.

Here are news articles, which appeared in national media, about other similar events. Article one, Article two, Article three, Article four.

Clip one : Mohandas K Gandhi on Swami Vivekananda 

Here is an excerpt from Swamiji's Chicago speech :

Sectarianism, bigotry, and its horrible descendant, fanaticism, have long possessed this beautiful earth. They have filled the earth with violence, drenched it often and often with human blood, destroyed civilisation and sent whole nations to despair. Had it not been for these horrible demons, human society would be far more advanced than it is now. But their time is come; and I fervently hope that the bell that tolled this morning in honour of this convention may be the death-knell of all fanaticism, of all persecutions with the sword or with the pen, and of all uncharitable feelings between persons wending their way to the same goal.

Clip two : Romain Rolland on Swami Vivekananda.

Thanks for making this event a successful one !
