  1. Dear Shri Narayana garu: Na comment nu apaartham cheesukookund'a chadivi delete cheyand`i. Here is my comment. I am trying to write truth whether you like it or not. You can delete this comment freely, if you are dissatisfied.

    I saw your comment at the blog of Shri Hi Spec.

    Vivekananda found numerous money making opportunities in yankee making land. He made some money by giving lectures. Ultimately, he found that yankee land was a no payment land.

    In May 1896 Swami Vivekananda wrote to Ms. Alberta Sturges (age 19) that he liked Amerique - the yankee land. He called India a jelly fish.

    " ... I have had two classes already — they will go on for four or five months and after that to India I go. But it is to Amerique — there where the heart is. I love the Yankee land. I like to see new things. I do not care a fig to loaf about old ruins and mope a life out about old histories and keep sighing about the ancients. I have too much vigour in my blood for that. In America is the place, the people, the opportunity for everything. I have become horribly radical. I am just going to India to see what I can do in that awful mass of conservative jelly-fish, ... "

    *Ms. Indra Nooyi, C.E.O. of Pepsico is reported to have said:

    “Where I am has a lot to do with the United States. I think the United States represents the greatest meritocracy in the world,”

    Her love of Yankee land is similar to Swamiji's love of the yankee land. But Swamiji reversed his love in seven years.

    Swamiji wrote to Ms. Ole Bull on the 17th Jan. 1900 during his second visit to USA:

    "...No, not even that; whenever it comes to paying, the people are nowhere. The field of lecturing in this country has been overworked; the people have outgrown that...."

    "...They come in crowds when there is a free lecture and very few when there is something to pay...

    "...No money. Hard work. No result. Worse than Los Angeles.

    They come in crowds when the lecture is free — when there is payment, they don't. That's all..."

    On March 27, 1895 Vivekananda wrote to Ms. Isabelle Mckindley from New York.

    "...This is a wonderful country for cheating, and 99.9 per cent have some motive in the background to take advantage of others. If any one just but closes his eyes for a moment, he is gone!! ..."

    Know the other side of Vivekananda from his Complete Works.
