Patna: Members of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) in Patna on Wednesday took out a torch rally to mark the 154th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekanand, the Hindu monk and philosopher who was born on 12th January, 1863 in an affluent family in Kolkata.

The rally began at Swami Vivekanand's statue located at the Maurya Shopping Complex and after passing through the Dak Bungalow Road, returned to the shopping complex where a number of youth leaders talked about the life of the man who single-handedly revived the importance of spiritualism among the young boys and girls of India.

Those present in the rally included Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislators Nitin Navin and Sanjiv Chaurasia; BJYM state president Rajesh Verma, Patna metro president Praveen Yadav, and a number of party activists.

"It is sad that in today's world where materialism precedes over spiritualism, good character, and a sense of duty towards one's country, the teachings of Swami Vivekanand appear to have lost their meaning among today's youths. However, his ideals were as relevant today as they were before and we would be doing a great disservice to ourselves and to the nation if we did not take time to study and understand the philosophy as espoused by this saint," said Chaurasia.
