Swami Vivekananda in India: A Corrective Biography

Rajagopal Chattopadhyaya (Author)

Swami Vivekananda in India: A Corrective Biography attempts to inform the reader accurately about his life both before and after his historic visits to the West. Much material has been translated anew from original Bengali books. At the same time it challenges current popular and pious notions held about this humanitarian-monk. The four major chapters in this book are about his meetings with Sri Ramakrishna, his travels in India during him in India, and his triumphant return from the West in 1897. Analysis of original eyewitness reports in both Indian and Western newspapers and periodicals forms an integral part of this biography. Many myths accumulated about the subject's accomplishments are corrected in this biography.
