Swami Vivekananda`s web archive launched
Kolkata: Want to browse paintings and sculptures of Swami Vivekananda by eminent artists? Wish to know how his legacy is being kept intact? Now, a comprehensive guide to his life and works is accessible online - thanks to a new web portal.
Commemorating Swami Vivekananda`s 150th birth anniversary, the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture, Golpark, Kolkata launched a website here Friday. It has been done with monetary assistance from the union ministry of culture.
"Its a first in the country... it has lectures and other authentic information on a single site. The Vivekananda archive of the institute has contributed to the contents," an institute spokesperson said.
A virtual treasure trove for Vivekananda`s followers, the cyber forum contains his letters, fables and poems among other things.
Most importantly, it highlights the monk`s association with music, art, architecture and the western world through articles penned by his contemporaries.
A ticker on the homepage enables one to keep tabs on how other countries like France and the US are celebrating his 150th birth anniversary.
