  1. Do we know Swami Vivekanand, who made India proud and produced greatest revolutionaries like

    Subhas Chandra Bose, Mahatma Gandhi etc etc who said they considered as their Guru and greatest

    Institutions are run in his name.

    We have no COIN in India till date on this great leader and saint. But we have 5 Rs coin of Sister

    Alphonsa a christian missionary who spread Christianity and did nothing for India except conversion.

    Do we need a proof we are under foreign rule of misionaries who mint coins of their tribe and they open

    Swiss account and no Indian account to take away looted wealth.
    Who take treatment abroad as they do not trust Indian doctors
