Let us all work hard, my brethren; this is no time for sleep. On our work depends the coming of the India of the Future. She is there ready waiting. She is only sleeping. Arise and awake and see her seated here on her eternal throne, rejuvenated, more glorious than she ever was - this motherland of ours.

Swami Vivekananda holds a pride of place among the makers of modern India. He was one of the greatest patriots to have ever been born in this country.

India today is poised for a giant leap from the ranks of developing countries to that of developed countries. Our economic growth is robust and we boast of a very high percentage of youth population among the nations of the world. But, at the same time there are several areas concerning the welfare of our nation which need our immediate attention.

If the economic growth and the benefits of development are to percolate down to the level of masses and if the people of our country have to live in peace, harmony and happiness, we need to take some urgent measures.

It is in this regard that we have a very wonderful remedy in the messages of Swami Vivekananda. He is a perfect role model for the youth of this country who need to grow as enlightened citizens.

It is under his banner that the Indian youths can work for the regeneration of our motherland. With a deep sense of urgency and concern for the nation we wish to spread the message of Swami Vivekananda, particularly among the youth of this country. This book is a humble effort in that direction.

It is organized into six key message clusters – a set of messages which when understood which when understood together provide the reader an insight into Swami Vivekananda’s radical prescription for the regeneration of our motherland.
