Vivekananda was very much keen on Rural development specifically the upliftment of poor and backwards. His quotes like ‘Daridra Devobhava’ symbolises his in deeper concerns on common man,” Dattaji opinioned.
“At the very spot where in 1893 September 11 Vivekananda’s historic speech took place at Chicago, we are planning for a permanent multimedia presentation which could give basic information on Life sketch and contributions of Vivekananda. His thoughts on universal brotherhood and others can be taken to a larger scale for new generation”  said Dattaji.
