India best example of unity in diversity: Vohra

Jammu, Jan 9: Governor NN Vohra Wednesday emphasized the need for character building and reviving and reinvigorating ethical and moral values to establish a balanced and harmonious society.   
The Governor was addressing the Valedictory Session of the two-day seminar on “Unity in Diversity” organized by the Ramakrishna Mission Jammu as part of the 150th Birthday celebrations of Swami Vivekananda.
The Governor, who was the chief guest, observed that Swami Vivekananda was not only an eminent Indian but one of the most outstanding thinkers and philosophers who had a visionary view of the universe.
He observed that Swamiji had perceived more than a century ago that if there is no peace and stability, there cannot be any development and growth.
 The Governor said that India, with more than 5000 years of recorded history, is the “best example of Unity in Diversity where people from different religions and faiths, speaking different languages, have lived together for centuries.” He said that “this spirit has to be rediscovered and strengthened.”
Referring to various components of teachings and philosophy of Swami Vivekananda, the Governor said that in today’s context “character building and the restoration of ethical values are very important.” Referring to the recent heinous gang-rape incident in Delhi, he stressed the importance of concerted efforts to reinvigorate moral and ethical values in the society.
He suggested to Dr. S. S. Bloeria, President, Ramakrishna Mission, Jammu, that, if possible, in future such seminars could be perhaps more profitably organized in the Universities and Colleges where a large number of students could get the opportunity of participating in the discussions and listening to eminent monks and scholars.
