Observed on 19 November - Ekanathji Jayanti. Remembering the founder of Vivekananda Kendra, studying his vision and rededicating ourselves to the mission of Nation building.
Mananeeya Eknathji Ranade was born on 19th November 1914. He was a selfless patriot and a fearless fighter, a great man maker, a great nation builder and a chosen gifted son of Bharath Mata. He was the architect of the idea and the structure of Vivekananda Rock Memorial that stands majestically on the rock at the feet of Bharath Mata. In a short span of period, Eknathji with his inviting efforts, shaped Vivekananda Kendra, as an important service mission in the country.
