Swami Vivekananda, one of the epoch men of India, is considered a role model for the younger generation. Knowing his views on every subject, many intellectuals still discuss him. There is always a discussion on what Swamiji said on such a subject and for what reason. In this the independence of the country is also a topic, on which Swami Vivekananda had some different views. The contribution of Swamiji on the freedom struggle is evident from his thoughts and actions. There is also one thing that Swamiji was the source of inspiration from Gandhiji to many freedom fighters and was engaged in preparing the countrymen throughout his life.
Swamiji was also a true patriot. Being a sanyasi, he was never active in politics. But his ideas greatly influenced Indian politicians and freedom fighters and inspired them to continue on the path of the country. After knowing the thoughts of Swami ji, it is known that he considered every problem of the countrymen as his own problem. Therefore, he also considered slavery as a main problem of the country and the countrymen. By paying attention to his thoughts, it is clear that he always used to constantly attack the root of the problem of slavery of Indians, the mentality being blunted by the slavery of Indians.
Swamiji used to say that it is most important that if every countryman is awakened, then other problems of the country will be solved automatically. He even wrote in a letter to his followers on 1 November 1896 that the country would become independent after 50 years. This happened but his concern was that every citizen of the country desperately needs to be awakened, his concern remains even today. Because, a large section of the country is more affected by confusing things than thinking with its mind.
