Today the country is realising the dreams of Swami Vivekananda and is moving on the path of continuous progress, he said.

The yatra launched by Dhankar will continue till January 7 and it is being organised by the Swami Vivekananda Kendra Kanyakumari, Rajasthan, and the Ministry of Culture. It will cover all 33 districts of Rajasthan and will spread the ideas of Vivekananda.
