AN APPEAL TO YOUNG MEN

We appeal to all thinking young men, who have faith in the leadership of Swami Vivekananda, who want to make the best use of their life-energy and dedicate themselves to raise the masses of India, to come forward and join the youth movement of the Mahamandal.

The young men who join the Mahamandal get complete training for all-round development of their physique, power of mental concentration, intelligence, and feeling for others. They become equipped with right ideas and acquire character qualities as well as leadership skills.

However, for us, self development is not only for ourselves. The more we grow into proper men, the more we feel for others. The condition of the common people of India is so miserable, that India ranks 134 among 187 countries on the scale of Human Development Index, according to the UNDP (2011). The Global Hunger Index ranking is 67 among 81 poor countries of the world - even after 64 years of Independence.

It depends wholly on the young people of India to bring about a change for the better. And that requires a serious, organized effort throughout the country.

'This is the time to decide your future - while you posses the energy of youth, not when you are worn out and jaded, but in the freshness and vigour of youth.... rouse yourselves, therefor, for life is short.'

Many of us believe that propagation of social or political theories and ideas is essential for the rousing of the wider mass and the youth of a country. As regards the ideas of a State or a society there are innumerable “isms” in vogue these days …. The fanatic believers of each “ism” have the illusion that once they established their own faith amongst the people, all the suffering and misery of the world would be eradicated…. But with me it is a firm faith that unless at the beginning we have acquired strength of character, rare in its human quality, there is hardly any hope of redeeming mankind by means of any of these “isms”. This was why Swami Vivekananda would say, “Man-making is my mission.” Men, true in spirit, were indeed the basic need, for without men hopes of national reconstruction or the founding of “isms” on any firm ground would be idle dreams. Hence every youth movement should primarily aim at producing men of the truest type

Then only will India awake, when hundreds of large-hearted men and women, giving up all desires of enjoying the luxuries of life, will long and exert themselves to their utmost for the well-being of the millions of their countrymen who are gradually sinking lower and lower in the vortex of destitution and ignorance.
