January 12, is considered as a Youth day in India [wikipedia link]- and that’s being a birthday of Swami Vivekananda. I remember my school days when we used to go on a parade or a walk to the nearest Ramakrishna Ashram, from our high school. It was clebrated in learning the teachings of Swami Vivekananda. My daughter (now 3yr old) shares her birthday with Swami Vivekanda on Jan 12th. I had this conversation with her this morning:
Me: V- sweety, Happy Birthday to you. Have fun
V: Thank you, Daddy!
Me: V- did you know? You share your birthday with Guruji, Swami Vivekananda.
V: Noooo…. I don’t want to share my birthday party. I don’t share my birthday dress.
me: V- you will know more about Guruji some time, no worries. You keep your birthday party for you and your friends for now 🙂
She has her birthday party on sunday at a near by bounce place. have fun buddy, love you.
