CM unveils statue of Sister Nivedita at Burmamines on her 150th birth anniversary
Jamshedpur, Oct. 29: As part of the day long programme to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Sister Nivedita organised by Ramakrishna Mission, Chief Minister Raghubar Das today unveiled a statue of Sister Nivedita.
Speaking at the inaugural function, the CM said that Sister Nivedita was deeply influenced by Swami Vivekananda who wanted to make India the world guru. He said it was everyone�s duty to work in this direction to make Swami Vivekananda�s dreams come true.
�Sister Nivedita had made India her karmabhoomi.
We all have the responsibility to make India a country free of poverty and illiteracy by 2022. Children should be given lessons in patriotism so that they work in the national interest. Swamy Vivekananda also worked for cleanliness.
The people of Jamshedpur should work to make it a green and clean city. Keeping the city and the country clean is not only the government�s responsibility, but the duty of one and all,� said the CM.
Das appealed to the gathering to attend the Run For Unity on 31st October and make it successful.
The event was organised at Sister Nivedita High School at Burmamines. Senior monks addressed the students, youth and teachers, propagating the message of Swami Vivekananda and Sister Nivedita. They were briefed to develop a wider outlook and pursue higher ideals to prepare themselves in the task of Nation building.
