India is changing. India's standing at the global stage is rising and this is due to Jan Shakti, said prime minister Narendra Modi. “Follow the rules, and India will rule,” he exhorted students.
 
Addressing a students’ convention on the occasion of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Centenary Celebrations, and 125th Year of Swami Vivekananda's Chicago Address on Monday, Modi said that 125 years ago, on the same day that has recently come to be known as 9/11, with just a few words, a youngster from India won over the world and showed the world the power of oneness. The 9/11 of 1893 was about love, harmony and brotherhood, he added.
 
The prime minister said that Swami Vivekananda raised his voice against the social evils that have entered our society and recalled that Swami Vivekananda said that only rituals will not connect an individual to divinity; he said that 'Jan Seva’ is ‘Prabhu Seva'.
 
Swami Vivekananda did not believe in sermonising, said Modi and added that his ideas and idealism paved way for an institutional framework through the Ramakrishna Mission.
 
The prime minister mentioned about those people who are working tirelessly to keep India clean and noted that they were the ones who had most imbibed the spirit of Vande Mataram. 
 
Student organisations, while campaigning for university elections, should give more importance to cleanliness, the prime minister said. He said that only those who respect women, can take legitimate pride in the opening words of Swami Vivekanand’s address – “Brothers and sisters of America.”
 
Modi said that people now say that the 21st century is Asia’s century. But long ago, Swami Vivekananda had given the concept of 'One Asia', and said that the solutions to the world's problems will come from Asia.
