After so much tapasya, I have understood this as the highest truth; god is present in every being. There is no other god besides that. He who serves all beings serves god indeed.' A study of the life of Swami Vivekananda is also a study of Indian civilization, its ethos and value system, through the eyes of an extraordinary leader and reformer. Swami Vivekananda's message of tolerance made him an exemplary spokesperson for the country, and his life's mission to create an order of men who dedicated their lives to others, made him a prophet and leader. His teachings continue to be relevant today, especially in the light of the prevailing intolerance and fanaticism in the country, and the increasing turmoil in the world. About the Author Gautam Ghosh was born in May 1952. He has been associated with the publication of his school and university magazines and he introduced a technical journal at the university level. His professional association with writing began with a biography of Mother Teresa. Swami Vivekananda: The Prophet of Modern India is his first major work.
