Minister Obaidul Quader said, ” Swami Vivekananda was a versatile genius, in the course of a short span of life hardly covering only 39 years , He attained a high degree of spiritual excellence.” Swamiji’s love for humanity finds its finest manifestation when he says ” Jibe prem kare jai jan , shei jan shebicche Iswar”—-its english rendering means ” He who serves man, serves God”. This time-honoured saying of Swamij Vivekananda has by now become a worldly phenomenon.
