Swami Vivekananda wanted our youth to be like lions. He himself was a lion and came to this world to transform everyone into lions. The effect of his thunderbolt-like words was such that many youth who fought for the country's freedom were transformed into real lions; to mention a few names, Subhash Chandra Bose, Lokamanya Tilak, Aurobindo, Sister Nivedita and Mahatma Gandhi, who made India free. His only mission in life was to awaken the youth of this country to bring back the lost glory of our motherland. His life and message are a perennial source of inspiration to our modern youth.
