How many know Swami Vivekananda was a warrior.

How many know Swami Vivekananda played an important role in freedom struggle.

Let us learn about the Swamiji which Christ Loving Belur Math & Ramakrishna Mission never shares.

“Bharat is in need of Bomb
and Bomb Alone” and the Call “Rise, Awake & Stop Not Till The Goal Is Reached” was to kick out British from Bharat.
While most of us see Swami Vivekananda as a Sanyasi who spread Sanatana Dharma to the world, very few know his contribution for freedom struggle.
There are loads
of articles how Gandhi was inspired by Swami Vivekananda whereas the truth is Swami inspired 1000s of revolutionaries to take Bombs & Guns to fight against British Oppression.

Swami Vivekananda’s youngest brother Bhupendranath Datta was one of the key members of
Anushilan Samithi, his book “SWAMI VIVEKANANDA – Patiot Prophet” and
The Book “VIVEKANANDA AS A TURNING POINT – The Rise Of A New Spiritual Wave” by Swami Shuddhidananda thankfully provides Swami Vivekananda’s Role in freedom struggle, his influence on revolutionaries, the
meetings with most famous gun maker Sir Hiram Maxim etc..
Swami Vivekananda gave a call at Madras on February 14, 1897, asking all his listeners to worship the motherland alone and exclusively for the next 50 years, and “give up”, he said, “being a slave”.
For the next 50 years, “this alone shall be our keynote — this, our great Mother India. let all other vain gods disappear for the time from our minds”.
Note the Swami’s prophetic vision regarding the freedom of Bharat, it was exactly 50 years after he had asked his countrymen to
worship Bharata Mata that British Prime Minister Clement Attlee announced in the House of Commons on February 23, 1947, his Government’s decision to quit Bharath.
One sees this agony of Vivekananda expressed in a letter he wrote to Mary Hale on October 30, 1899, where he talked
of the “terrible massacre the English perpetrated in 1857 and 1858, and still more terrible famines that have become the inevitable consequence of British rule (there never was a famine in a native State)”, and how it killed millions of people. Passionately describing the
degenerated state of affairs, Vivekananda lamented how “freedom of the Press [has been] stopped already” and “we have been disarmed long ago”, and how, “for writing a few words of innocent criticism, men are being hurried to transportation for life, others imprisoned without
any trial; and nobody knows when his head will be off”.

Referring to Vivekananda’s contribution in igniting the flame of revolution, Romain Rolland said, “The Indian nationalist movement smouldered for a long time until Vivekananda’s breath blew the ashes into flame, and
erupted violently three years after his death in 1905.”
Discussing Vivekananda’s and Sri Ramakrishna’s influence on the revolutionary movement in Bharat, Sri Aurobindo once remarked that the “influence of Ramakrishna and Vivekananda worked from behind”, as a result of which
the "Movement and the Secret Society became so formidable that in any other country with a political past they would have led to something like the French revolution”.

Sister Nivedita introduced Bhagha Jatin to Swami Vivekananda. The meeting changed the course of
Jatin’s life. It was Swami Vivekananda who instructed Jatin to take up the mission to bring together dedicated young men with “iron muscle” and “nerves of steel”, who could plunge into the service of the motherland.
Struck by his personality & dedication, Sister Nivedita wrote,
“A young man came to me whose one idea is to make Swamiji’s name the rallying point for young India. He is wild about him and he is such a strong man himself.”
From The Life of Maharshi Aurobindo, it says
“It was Swami Vivekananda who introduced the cult of Shaktiworship, which
was taken up by a succession of brilliant men, the first two being Aurobindo Ghose and Barindra Ghose, who might be called the joint authors of Bhawani Mandir.”

R Shamashastry’s modern translation of Arthashastra is a prescribed text at Harvard, Yale and Oxford for students of Political Science, International Relations and Economics today.
Until this discovery, the

On this day, 12/01/1934
#MasterdaSuryaSen was executed along with Tarakeswar Dastidar.

For almost one year Masterda was kept in jail and was subjected with extreme and inhuman physical and mental torture. All his nail's were uprooted, each and Image
every joints of bone in his body were broken , all his teeth's were taken out .He was beaten almost every day with bayonets and steel rods. He died much before and only his dead body was hanged .Later Masterda’s dead body was thrown in sea never to be found again.
It is wholly
wrong to evaluate the Chittagong Uprising , commonly called the Chittagong Armoury raid , as a mere youthful revolt. There is no doubt that the ulterior objective of the revolutionaries led by Masterda Surya Sen was a passionate demand for complete freedom from the fetters of Image

Today is the day to recall the great tragedy that befell India 52 years ago. For the 1st time in modern world history, a head of government died in a foreign country. Lal Bahadur Shastri’s sudden demise barely two years after his taking over
as the PM shocked D nation so much so that deep down in our collective memory a pain lingers till date.
When Shastri’s body was brought home, his mother, who would die 9 months later, spotted bluish patches on her son. “Mere bitwa ko jahar de diya!” (My son has been poisoned!)
But then, doubts about Shastri’s death had cropped up even in Tashkent. On 11 January, at about 4 am, Ahmed Sattarov, the Russian butler attached to Shastri, was rudely woken up. The butler recalled his nightmare last year in an interview with Russia and India Report:

These Nationalists are jealous of a woman..
They can't digest the fact that
Grand Daughter of Hitler's admirer & daughter of a KGB agent who was born in a remote corner of Italy, for living who served Tables at a Bar in England & fell in love with Parsi-Muslim's son..
Him and crossed Continents leaving back her Near & Dear to an unknown place & with unknown faces and without communication as languages were barriers...
With all that she bore 2 kids, one from him & another (Galti hogayi, kiska pata nahi) last minute save from Jesus saved her
Life but took husband's...
Undeterred, took the reigns of oldest political party, put her legs on the throne & kept those people who licked her feet & packed, sent to oblivion who didn't.
Gradually, she owned Bureaucracy and Media and Intellectuals, organised a Pogrom & dethroned
