The convention of students is being held on 11th September, the day Swami Vivekananda delivered his historic address at Chicago in 1893. 

This year, we are marking 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda’s Chicago address and Pt. Deendayal Upadhyaya centenary celebrations. 

Swami Vivekananda strongly believed in the power of Yuva Shakti. He saw a vital place for youngsters in the realm of nation building.

Inspired by the ideals of Swami Vivekananda, we are working tirelessly towards realising the dreams and aspirations of our youth."

S Aishwarya and S Saundarya, great grand-daughters of Bharat Ratna M.S. Subbulakshmi, today called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with their parents, V Shrinivasan and Geetha Shrinivasan.

Ms. Aishwarya and Ms. Saundarya briefly performed the "Maithreem Bhajatha." This is a benediction which was also rendered by M.S. Subbulakshmi herself in October 1966, at the United Nations.

The benediction was composed in Sanskrit by Acharya Shri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati of Kanchi.

It is an anthem for universal friendship and world peace, which was sung by M.S. Subbulakshmi, in most of her subsequent concerts, after the UN concert. It ends with the words “Srey o bhooyat sakala jananam” - Let grace and happiness abound for all mankind.
