A Tribute To The Youngster Forever Of India…

swami Vivekananda

Some people stay alive even after death and are remembered as Legends. Today ( January 12) is a day which is celebrated in the name of one of such legends: Swami Vivekananda.

We strongly believe that there is no need to provide any intro about this great personality. As, not only in India, Swami Vivekananda is an acclaimed personality across the globe. In India, this day is celebrated as the ‘National Youth Day’ in order to observe Vivekananda’s Birth Anniversary (January 12, 1863).

On this special occasion, EeYuva made an attempt to pay tribute to the intellectual and spiritual dynamo. The below are the few extracts about Swami Vivekananda uttered by some famous personalities from the Indian history.

Subhas Chandra Bose

The patriotic hero of India, Subhas Chandra Bose was deeply inspired by Swami Vivekananda’s teachings. Netaji was around fifteen years old when he was influenced by Swamiji’s literary works, which continued till his last breath.


Bal Gangadhar Tilak

The first and most acclaimed leader of the India’s freedom struggle applauded Swami Vivekananda’s works of preaching Hinduism across the world. Tilak says “It was Swami Vivekananda who took on his shoulders this stupendous task of establishing the glory of Hinduism in different countries across the borders.” Also, Bal Gangadhar has a memorable event of his life – Him meeting Swamiji in person in 1892.


Rabindranath Tagore

The Nobel Laureate in literature has a great admiration towards Narendranath Datta. Speaking about Vivekananda, Tagore once told, “If you want to know India, study Vivekananda. In him everything is positive and nothing negative.”


Chakravarti Rajagopalachari

Chakravarti Rajagopalachari, also called as Rajaji, was one of the first recipients of Bharat Ratna and also the first Indian Governor General of India. The Independence activist stated that the country owe everything to Vivekananda.


Jawaharlal Nehru

The first Prime Minister of India and acclaimed personality in Indian politics had delivered public lectures on Swami Vivekananda in various occasions.


Sri Aurobindo Ghose

Sri Aurobindo was one of the influenced leaders in the history of Indian Freedom Movement. He later became a spiritual guru and worked on introducing his visions on spiritual evolution.


Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

The extremely notable personality in Indian Freedom Struggle and in Indian Politics once said, “Surely Swami Vivekananda’s writing needs no introduction from anybody. They make their own irresistible appeal.”


“Give Me Hundred Energetic Young Men And I Shall Transform India,” said Swami Vivekananda.

So Dear Youngsters, Believe In Your Strengths And Be One Of Those.





Make It Or Break It: Friendship Networks Can Impact Students’ Life

Make It Or Break It: Friendship Networks Can Impact Students' Life

Friendship groups play a major role in a student’s life and the density of ties that he/she shares with friends is associated with specific social and academic benefits, says a new study.

Friendship Can Distract Or Improve Academics

The study showed that friends can act both as resources and liabilities in an individual’s academic achievement and also continue to be so even after college life. “Contrary to conventional wisdom, students are quite savvy in recogni

sing that friends can distract them and in strategically using friends to help them improve their academics. The most successful strategies, however, differ by network type,” said Janice McCabe, Associate Professor at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, USA.

Three Types Of Friendship

The researchers mapped the friendship networks of 67 students at a Midwestern university. They found that student friendships can be classified into three types of networks: tight-knitters, samplers and compartmentalisers.

Reliable Tight-Knitters

Students in the group of tight-knitters know each other, and refer to their friends as family and relied on each other socially. Academically, they were supportive and helpful. However, they also had the potential to pull each other down academically, if they lacked academic skills and motivation. The potential for such negative influence reproduced race- and class-based inequalities, the study said.

Clusters Of Compartmentalisers

Compartmentalisers have two to four clusters of friends, who do not know each other, and their network resembles a bow tie. They had separate clusters of friends: one or more for studying and one or more for having fun, with a good balance between the two. They tended to be from the middle-class, and relied less on their friends to succeed in college than tight-knitters, the researchers noted.

Samplers’ @ 1-1 Friendship
On the other hand, students in the samplers’ category have one-on-one friendships rather than groups of friends, with friends from different places remaining unconnected to each other. They are independent and did not rely on their friends for a sense of belonging. However, they were often socially isolated. They were academically successful without the help of their friends, the researchers concluded in the paper published in the journal Contexts.

Whatever might be the new finding, good friends are like stars; you don’t always see them, but you know they’re always there, what do you say?


Study Reveals ‘Likes’ On Facebook May Not Affect Purposeful People

Study Reveals 'Likes' On Facebook May Not Affect Purposeful People

After writing a post or uploading a photo on the social networking website Facebook, do you count the number of “likes”? If so, then you are living without a sense of purpose, a study said. The study revealed that for people living with a sense of purpose, the rush of self-esteem that comes with the ubiquitous thumbs-up on social media may be limited.

“We found that having a sense of purpose allowed people to navigate virtual feedback with more rigidity and persistence. With a sense of purpose, they are not so malleable to the number of likes they receive,” said Anthony Burrow, Assistant Professor at the Cornell University at New York, in the US.

The researchers defined “sense of purpose” as the ongoing motivation that is self-directed, oriented towards the future and beneficial to others.

While it is nice to receive compliments, online or otherwise, it may not be a good thing to base one’s self-esteem on them.

“Otherwise, when one receives few likes, he or she can feel worse and the individual’s self-esteem would be contingent on what other people say and think and over time that’s not healthy,” Burrow said.

On the other hand, “purposeful people noticed the positive feedback, but did not rely on it to feel good about themselves”, Burrow added.

It is because purposeful people have the ability to see themselves in the future and act in ways that help them achieve their goals, they are able to inhibit impulsive responses to perceived rewards, such that they prefer larger downstream incentives to smaller immediate ones, explained Nicolette Rainone from the Cornell University.

For the study, the team conducted two experiments. In the first, they recruited nearly 250 active Facebook users from the US and measured their self-esteem and sense of purpose, and asked how many likes they typically got on photos they posted.

The users who reported getting more likes on average also reported greater self-esteem. But those with a high level of purpose showed no change in self-esteem, no matter how many likes they got.

In the second study, the researchers asked nearly 100 Cornell University students to take a selfie and post it to a mock social media site, “Faces of the Ivies”. The students were told that their photo had received a high, low or average number of likes.

Getting a high number of likes boosted self-esteem – but, again, only for students who had less purpose, Burrow said, in the paper appearing in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology.
