A day of a Great Indian to remember on this dayMembers,
Today is 11 September. It is a day to remember the good and bad events that happened in the world. Today is the day when The Great Indian Monk Swami Vivekananda delivered his first lecture in a Religious meet at Chicago in America in the year 1893, on 11 September. His inspiring speech attracted the whole world.
Unlike the normal addressing of any gathering with 'Ladies and Gentlemen", he addressed the gathering staring with special words " Sisters and Brothers", not "Brothers and Sisters." Thus he has shown his respect to the female by giving priority to the females in the first place.
I place here the extract of his starting speech.
Quote "Sisters and Brothers of America,
It fills my heart with joy unspeakable to rise in response to the warm and cordial welcome which you have given us. I thank you in the name of the most ancient order of monks in the world; I thank you in the name of the mother of religions, and I thank you in the name of millions and millions of Hindu people of all classes and sects."Unquote.
@ A day to remember and salute the Great Saint of India.
