Presenting his keynote address, secretary of ASHA, Manipur, BK Nandeibam said that India is known for having so many godmen in the world and that Swami Vivekanand is one of the most important gurus in India and against whom not a single negative criticism or remark has been said till date.

The ideas, thinking and philosophies of Swami Vivekananda are so forceful that all his doctrines and teachings are accepted worldwide. As such Swami Vivekananda played a crucial role in identifying India in the global context despite the fact that he died at the early age of 39, he said.

He said that the state has been facing drug menace and problem of moral degradation amongst the youth which are a threat to the future of the state, it is high time to revisit the teaching of Swami Vivekananda. To impart his philosophies would help in guiding the youths in the right direction to some extent, he said.
