FB Link for reference:

In the session dedicated to Education, Didi shared her views on various topics of education with specific mention about Arunachal Pradesh.
Various questions raised by the youngsters were mind boggling and worthy to analyse.
Major questions are as follows:

• Unfortunately we are in an age where the youth is running blindly behind getting a degree but is missing out on true education. What is true education according to Swami Vivekanand and your understanding of his teachings?

• You have worked rigorously for education in many tough regions. What are the main difficulties and factors that contribute to the poor absorption of education and technology in some areas?

• Swami ji said that "Arise, Awake and don't stop until the GOAL is reached". What should be the basic and ultimate goal of every human living on this planet? And how can it be achieved today ?

• What qualities do you think the modern youth has but your generation lacked that can allow us to make a better world easier?

• What is the relevance and importance of Swami Ji's ideals in this era?

• What do you think about this initiative of KavyaVarsha where we bridge the gap between eminent personalities and youth?

• What is your message for the global youth?

Didi stressed up on  our Principles of ‘ Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah ‘ and Swami Vivekananda’s vision of education which mainly was focused on
- Observation
- Discrimination
- Utilisation
- Preservation &
- Transmission

and concluded with a message  for the new generation - "Youth should live a purposeful life".

भगिनी निवेदिता की भारत भक्ति

 विवेकानंद केंद्र कन्याकुमारी,शाखा-भागलपुर एवं श्री रामकृष्ण पाठ् चक्र के संयुक्त तत्वाधान में भगिनी निवेदिता जयंती के शुभ अवसर पर भगिनी निवेदिता की भारत भक्ति विषय पर विमर्श का आयोजन किया गया कार्यक्रम में प्रो.अमिता मोइत्रा जी ने विषय प्रवेश करते हुए भगिनी निवेदिता को महान देशभक्त सन्तान की व्याख्या दी।
मुख्य वक्ता स्वामी भावात्मानंद जी  सचिव रामकृष्ण मिशन मुजफ्फपुर ने विषय पर प्रकाश डालते हुए कहा कि भगिनी निवेदिता ने भारतीय जीवन पद्धति से शिक्षा का प्रचार प्रसार किया। साथ ही जब देश की स्वतंत्रता जी बात आई उसमें भी उनकी भूमिका महत्वपूर्ण थी।  वह देश के विभन्न संगठन गरम  दल और नरम दल  सभी के साथ सामान्य रूप से जुड़ी थी और वो अपने को रामकृष्ण मां शारदा के उद्देश्यों के अनुरूप अपने जीवन को डालने का प्रयास करती रही। स्वामी विवेकानन्द की गुरु भक्ति एवं राष्ट्रभक्ति की तरह ही भगिनी निवेदिता भी पूर्ण रूप से गुरु पथ गामिनी थी भगिनी निवेदिता का आदर्श हम भारतीयों के लिए अनुकरणीय है।
