    The 2 stars are for the poor writing of Mr Sengupta He tries too hard to make his point about Vivekananda being a modern monk, sacrificing the objectivity of a biographer in most places Besides, Mr Sengupta writes repeatedly about how his own upbringing was influenced by Vivekananda, how he was also an unruly child like Vivekananda, and so on There are several quotes from Vivekananda, but at times distributed in a way that the text loses continuity Overall, while the reader gets to learn interesting bits about Vivekananda, there is little continuity or coherence in the book I d recommend trying some other book to learn about Vivekananda and to understand his relevance in contemporary India and the world.

    This is my second book by Mr Hindol Sengupta after Being Hindu which made me a fan The best thing about his books are that it seems as if he s directly conversing with you A personal, intimate, conversation He doesn t try to appear profound or learned than you he ll earnestly present his point of view on the subject matter without a trace of bias and keeping balance which in itself is commendable in our day and age The Modern Monk makes someone like me piqued up to know about Swami Vivekananda which is testimony to the content The book left me wanting for I can complain that perhaps he could ve shed light on so many aspects of Vivekananda s life but then again, the book s purpose was to reintroduce the monk and highlight his relevance in our day and age, which it manages to do so really well I ll share my favorite part from the book which defines what I feel of Sanatan Dharm the path I follow From Christ to Mohammed to Buddha he accepts, embraces and admits to divinity in each one of them But he is unwilling to have Hinduism and Vedanta be subsumed or destroyed by anything or anyone He readily admits that there are myriad ways to God, but he wants to ensure his way survives too and it s openness and indeed its own prejudices and pettiness of its rituals does not become a route to its destruction Highly recommend.

    Swami Vivekananda is a larger than life figure not just because of his spiritual prowess because the relentless work he did in his short span of time to take the Vendanta to the world Not once did the monk ever thought about super conciousness while working for soul of his mother land as work and work alone was is power to ulift the work conciousness, the extreme spiritual dwelling continued in the background.To read a book written by an author from this generation is quite rivetting Hindol Sengupta researches and takes out the normal naren and then compares naren to the vivekananda he has become or the journey of transformation Many interesting snippet for Swamiji s normal, struggling middle class life is highlighted and ofcourse there is exploits from the swamiji s speeches and writings I liked reading the book and the associations it tries to make with the present Overall a nicely written book which dwells into the human aspects of Swamiji and why he is relevant even today.

    The author is a self confessed convert of Swami Vivekananda A succinct narrative of the lives and thinking prowess of Swami V The readers would get a glimpse of Vivekananda largeness of thoughts and his supreme ability to think centuries ahead of others in matters of religious identity, politics, caste and secular thinking.These are current world issues and Swami Vivekananda s principles as orated in 1898 Chicago conference still holds true, even after a century and quarter later.A chapter on Ramakrishna a mystic devotee of the Lord and his influence on young Swami Vivekananda was an interesting read
