( The speech delivered by Nabani-da on 30 Dec 2011 at our last annual camp. )
ॐ सहनाववतु । सह नौ भुनक्तु । सह वीर्यं करवावहै ।
तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु । मा विद्विषावहै ॥
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥ हरिः ॐ तत सत ।।
क्या बोलूँ, जो सोचा था वह बात तो अभी मन में नहीं है. मेरे शरीर की ओर देखने से मेरे उम्र का सही अंदाज लगा पाना किसी के लिए भी मुश्किल है. I am going to finish eighty-first year of my life. 81, I am going to finish, and I have worked very hard from very lower age. when I was very young, I had to work very hard. I entered into service at the age of seventeen, then some how putting on education, family affairs, helping others, studying etc and it all went on...but I was always very happy, I was never depressed. What is depression I have no experience in my life; full of enthusiasm all the time, and that is very necessary. 
I have not don, very much, something very big, but somehow with the blessings of sri Ramakrishna,the holy Mother, Swami Vivekananda, it seems me at least this matter,and I am surprised already in this camp, I had to relate how it started ? it comes to my mind and before I tell you, perhaps all of you have not heard, for some period; when I was in service, some sanyasins of the Ramakrishna order,led by Swami Ranganathanandaji, wanted to go to our house, just to meet my grand father, who had the good fortune to be present, when Swamiji after returning to India, went to Dakshineshvar, and their he was requested by everyone- Swamiji tell us something, tell us something. Swamiji spoke for five to seven minutes, it might be, they can find out the exact time, because that matter is with me, so they went. Swami Ranganathanandaji and a few others swamis; Swami Ananyanandaji, who is lying very sick at Belur-math for along time, years have passed. there was one swami....' जयराम महाराज ' जिनको हम कहते हैं,वे ( परम पूज्य श्रीमत स्वामी स्मरणानन्द जी महाराज, श्रीरामकृष्ण मठ एवं मीशन के वर्तमान उपाध्यक्ष)  भी थे. 
ये सब था, वहाँ हम जाते थे, और जाते जाते जाते जाते, एक रोज वहाँ के दो महाराज, जयराम महाराज और अनन्यानन्दजी महाराज, हमको बोलते थे हमलोग थोडा टहलने के लिए जाते हैं, अद्वैत आश्रम से आप भी क्यों नहीं आते है, ऑफिस के बाद यहाँ ? तो ऑफिस का काम खत्म होने के बाद मैं वहाँ जाने लगा. हम तीनों वहाँ से निकल कर के, इंटाली में एक पार्क है, थोड़ी दूर में, बहुत समय नहीं लगता था, पाँच-सात मिनट मैक्सिमम.. ऐसा होगा, सात-आठ मिनट या अधिक अधिक से दस मिनट हो सकता है, और लौट कर आना. हाँ, तो एक रोज जब हमलोग जा रहे थे, तो एक लड़का फुटपाथ के किनारे कहीं खड़ा था, वहाँ और भी बहुत से लड़के खड़े थे, it was almost rush,..he just,..that boy, he was a boy, he showed his finger to these swamijis - at Jayram maharaj and Ananyanandaji, see see how the money from other people they eat so much..that such ( huge) bodies they have now !..देखो देखो दूसरों के पैसों को खा-खा कर इनलोग अपना शरीर कैसा बना लिया है ! 
अँ ? देखो ...हंसी..तो, तो,.. साधू लोग भी थोड़ा थोड़ा हँसने की कोशिश कर रहे थे, लेकिन वह हँसी उतनी स्वाभाविक रूप से नहीं निकली है, उनकी भाव-भंगिमा को देखने से मुझे समझ में आया कि, उनको बहुत बुरा महसूस हो रहा था; मुझे भी बहुत खराब लगा था. तो अनन्यानन्दजी ने मुझसे कहा-' नवनी बाबु देखते हैं, इन युवकों की क्या स्थिति हो रही है, इन लडकों में भी सुधार हो सके, इसके लिए क्या आप कुछ उपाय सोच सकते हैं ?' थोड़ा चिन्तन कर के बताइए जिससे इनलोगों में थोड़ा ...remolding of their character, remolding of their mind,..हो सकता है ? 
I went back home at night,took a sheet of paper, and before the port rate of Swami Vivekananda - just a short planing, how to have a youth organization, which will work throughout India...? हाँ,and then we came, and their was a meeting at Adwaita Ashram, the persons who were present their one {pointing to Dipak da, the Dipak Ranjan Sarkar ) } is here.He was studying in a college now, so he used to come to Adwait Ashram, he was present and one or two other people, they also used to go to Ramakrishna Math and Mission,they were present there, so they all said-" If you take the lead, you have to take the charge, the planing etc. you have to do, we will help you as far as we can, so let us start one organization." They did not know many things,so gradually the registration of the Organization, और कंसटीच्युशन बनाना, तथा इस युवा-संगठन के गठित होने का समाचार कैसे कैसे दूसरों के पास पहुँचाना, वह सब मैं करने लगा, जहाँ जहाँ परिचित लोग थे, सभी को पत्र के द्वारा इसका संवाद भेजने लगा,देखिये ऐसे ऐसे उद्देश्य को रख कर एक संगठन बना है,तो वहाँ उस मीटिंग में बात हुई, कि इस संगठन का नाम क्या होगा ?  
तो मैंने कहा आप लोग जो रखना चाहें वो हो सकता है, लेकिन दो चीज, दो शब्द इसमें रहना चाहिए, एक स्वामी विवेकानन्द का नाम इसमें रहना चाहिए and because that it is an youth organization, this youth, this is for the youth...इस लिए ' युवा ' ये दोनों बातों का उल्लेख इसमें स्पष्ट रूप से रहना चाहिए; इसीलिए संस्था का नाम रखा गया- विवेकानन्द युवा महामण्डल, और चूँकि इसका area of work होगा all of India, so " अखिल भारत विवेकानन्द युवा महामण्डल " इस प्रकार आगे बढ़ते बढ़ते, थोड़ा सा कम-ज्यादा हो सकता है, लास्ट जो रिपोर्ट हमने देखा, उसके अनुसार इस समय पूरे भारत में इस संगठन की ३१५ शाखाएं 
कार्यरत हैं ! 
 Three hundred and fifteen centers are there! Can you find out any other organization, of which there are more than three hundred units, centers in the whole of India? But almost automatically, dose not much pushing or bugle, all of them people there, as they came to know about this organization,and the beauty and the grandeur of the plane,which can really remould the life of youths...who can build a New India ! Any how gaining Independence is not enough, we are ashamed of meaning of independence now a days, every where, wherever we go, we see this is a spurious independence, we don't have real independence; what is that in India ? That can come only..if we have proper Men !..who must have love for the country, love for their parents, mother first, father and there are other elderly people, they must have deep respect for them, they must be ready to serve them as much as possible for him, and not to look so much at his own happiness,and ease etc. no not like that. 
 so it went on and this plane came to the mind, that are so many units now, when there were only  20 units, 30 units, 40 units, 50 units like that it went on rising gradually, so they must be brought together at least at times,at least once a year, previously two-three times a year ऐसा कैम्प होता था, ऐसा एनुअल कैम्प -अभी जैसा होता है.
  बारी बारी से कैम्प एरिया भाग करके,ऐसा छोटा छोटा सा कैम्प आयोजित किया जाता था; एरिया भाग करके, इधर का ये नोर्थ इंडिया का, ये साऊथ इंडिया का, middle of India, इधर ईस्ट उधर वेस्ट, हमलोग पहले तय कर लेते थे कि, भारत के किन राज्यों को मिलाकर इस बार क्षेत्रीय कैम्प होना चाहिए. और मेरे साथ ऐसा होता था, कि कोई न कोई कहीं से आकर मुझे हेल्प करता था, whole of India I went round, हिमालय से ले कर कन्याकुमारी तक और उधर पूर्व में,...जहाँ तक है, वहाँ से लेकर मुंबई तक, ऐसा कोई कोना नहीं बचा है, जहाँ मैं नहीं गया हूँ. 
 और गया भी किस तरह ? कहीं किसी से कोई परिचय नहीं था,अभी मुझे याद नहीं आ रहा है, मेरी यादास्त बहुत खराब हो गयी है,  नोर्थ-वेस्ट में किसी जगह गए थे, बिलकुल नोर्थ-वेस्ट में at the top, वहाँ पहुँचने के बाद एक-दो व्यक्ति पूछने लगे- ' कहाँ जाना चाहते हैं, किनसे मिलना चाहते हैं? '  ' नहीं किसी को तो मैं यहाँ जनता नहीं हूँ,किसी के साथ मेरा परिचय नहीं है, previously we don't have any contact, I have not informed any body that I am going for a purpose, which I will explain to you when I go, I had not got any chance to explain these things to them. So some one took interest and talked to me for some time, and said you go to the chief, judge, of the state, he is very good man, very helpful, chief justice of that state, I went to his house,उनके दरवान ने पूछा-मैं कौन हूँ ?
मैं बोला, भाई मैं बहुत दूर से आया हूँ, उनके साथ मिलना चाहता हूँ, वह फिर पूछा - किसलिए,कारण बताइए. मैंने कहा, उन्हीं से काम है, बहुत जरुरी काम है. भीतर जाकर उनको बताया, वे तुरंत मुझे अपने घर के भीतर बुलवाए. जब उनको मैनें सारी बातें बताई, तो वे आश्चर्य से बोले- ऐसा काम हो रहा है !  Very good, very good, so he issued circulars to schools, colleges,etc. big clubs, known people, so in three days time a big meeting was held,I explained to them, like that went on, went on, until the total numbers of the centers of the Mahamandal has exceeded three hundred; three hundred fifteen or something like that.हाँ...ऐसा कैसे हो गया भाई,? इससे कोई आर्थिक लाभ उठाने की बात तो बिलकुल नहीं हो सकती है, यहाँ किसी का नाम -यश, प्रतिष्ठा पाने की भी बात नहीं है, देखो अमुक व्यक्ति इसका फाउनडर है,बिलकुल नहीं, महामण्डल में ऐसी कोई बात नहीं होती है; और उस समय एक फिलोसोफी के प्रोफेसर थे, जिनके साथ मेरा अच्छा परिचय था,उनको संस्था का प्रेसिडेंट बनया गया, और ये था- { दीपक दा ( श्री दीपक रंजन सरकार )की ओर इशारा करते हुए }, देखो यह नटखट लड़का यहाँ है, यह था, उस समय ये लड़का था, कॉलेज में पढ़ता था. बहुत कम उम्र था, उस समय विचार हुआ ये तो नवयुवक है, और युवा संगठन है, इसको सदस्य बनाना चाहिए, So I am very happy, that he is present here today. so at least he can vouchsafe that what I am telling you,at least that day what happened,what I am telling you, he can vouchsafe, he can say- yes ! it was like that.otherwise you may think that, I am telling you about a sleep that I had.no, it is not a sleeps description,this actually happened, and then see why it happened? 
It happened because of the unexpressed desire of Bhgwan Sri Ramakrishna Dev, Jaganmata Sarada and the hero of all youths Swami Vivekananda, ever pushing, ever helping, during all this movement's thirty (or 45?) years, and still not ending,we must have  that faith, that conviction, that yes, it is they who are guiding us, we are nothing ! We are servants of this Organization ! and we are very happy, we are very lucky, that we have been chosen,to belong to this organization ! 
and to help this to grow further and to spread more to involve more youths, who have remained untouched so far, and to tell them and make them understand, that eating, drinking and being merry is not the whole of life, it can not be the goal of human life. 
The goal of human life is to give as much as of yourself as possible for the good of others, one who can give that, is the greatest person,Thakur gives His all in-spite of carrying that Cancer in his throat, the holy Mother, in no ordinary education, she had that feeling, motherly feeling,and she felt that she was the mother of not only of human beings, but all short of creatures, all that is alive, every thing that has a tinge of life in it, is the holy Mothers child. Brother we must not west our life, we must not west our energies,our money our education or something, just in eating and drinking and being merry,no, their are bigger things,higher things to do.
  Mahamandal has tried to bring this idea to the youths of India,and as result today 1600 youths of India have assembled here. It is a wonderful thing, wonderful experience, more perhaps will come, but how long can I fight ? My days are limited now at the age of eighty one, may be another ten-twenty years, may be,but may not be also. Others will come forward, and take whole charge, without leaving for me any thing,that I will have to do myself.Of-course they have taken many things, now a days I don't have to reply to all letters.There was time, when after returning from office, and going to the Mahamandals office in the evening, at night  ten o'clock or 10.30 or 11o'clock, I return to home,and after the supper a little,I used to seat with letters etc,writing for Vivek-Jivan, writing for other things, all these things went on.
So brothers, I am very happy that I could unload the weight that I have been carrying for these thirty years and more, you all come forward, I hope you understand this,thoroughly, don't be allured by other things, the world is full of  allurements, therefor first think, that which is not beneficial, not healthy, not for real growth of human beings,so forget all those things; do this work ! have your education, try to earn something,help your family ,help any body else in your neighborhood, who needs some help, and do this work, because you can not remove all sufferings of all people,by giving them money, heaps of money even, on their heads, you don't do that.Let them know some thing how to live, and for living money is necessary,they will know how to earn money through honesty, no dishonest deals,honest living, honestly you must earn money, honestly you must live. 
But must know that living dose not mean,eating, drinking and be merry or having some offspring, and then diseases, then plundering,चोरी.... कितनी, कितनी तरह की करनी पडती है, और वह सब करते जाने से, मनुष्यों को न जाने कितने-कितने तरह के दुःख-कष्ट झेलने पड़ते हैं, इन सबों में से कुछ भी दुःख तुम्हारे नजदीक आ ही नहीं सकेंगे, इनमें से कोई भी विपत्ति मुझे मेरे मार्ग से विचलित नहीं कर पायेगी,क्योंकि मेरे सामने जीवन का एक निश्चित लक्ष्य हमारे सामने रखा गया है,and until we reach that Goal, we will not stop working.work hard for it, what is that ? to resuvinate India. और दर्द, ये तो सब जगह में होगा न, पैर में दर्द है, घुटनों में दर्द है, इधर दर्द है, उधर दर्द है, इस दर्द दूर करना चाहिए, शरीर स्वस्थ होगा, बुद्धि तीक्ष्ण होगी, हृदय प्रेम से भरा होगा, यह प्रेम सबों के लिए होगा, पर दुखियों के लिए अधिक; ये तो है-मनुष्य बनना भाई ! 
 हम कहते हैं - ' Man- making ' is the greatest Religion, Swamiji also subscribe to this idea,' Man- making ' means : ' We shall have strong mussels,and a very soft heart, this brain must be very sharp,so combination of these things,every one of you can do that, and if you can do that then only you are true Indian nationals, true sons or even daughters also, sons and daughters of Mother India will have nothing beyond serving the motherland,serving every being that is born on this soil. so I think I should stop now, what do you say?
अच्छा, अच्छा I am sorry, I am sorry, you should have stopped me earlier, भाई, my love to you all, my love to you all, I prey for you all, and prey for the country and every body,who is suffering, who has deficiencies,so that can become full, so that they can understand Thakur, Ma, Swamiji. In these days, in this yuga, in this yuga, in this period of time, they are " the Deities " , who will take care of every body.
  They are also more or less murkha's, हाँ ! , no education,not to speak of school or college, or university,..हाँ , लेकिन वैसी विद्या किनके पास है ? ठाकुर के पास जो विद्या थी, माँ के पास जो विद्या थी,स्वामीजी के पास जो विद्या थी, वैसी विद्या (स्वयं मनुष्य बनने और दूसरों को मनुष्य बनने में सहायता करते,करते,-स्वयं को भगवान बना लेने वाली ' विद्या ')  और कहाँ है? वह ' विद्या ' उनके पास है, जो हमारे माता-पिता हैं ! वह विद्या एक थाती के रूप में, हमें सौंप देने के लिए, उनके पास है, जो हमारे माता पिता हैं. हमलोग उनकी  सन्तान हैं, इस लिए उस विद्या पर (मनुष्य बनते बनते भगवान में परिणत हो जाने वाली विद्या पर ) हमारा जन्मसिद्ध अधिकार है,we have right on ' That ' education, to have that broadness of heart, and that intelligence, and विश्वास, that आत्मविश्वास !  that even if necessary, I will give up my body even, my life even, let my life also go, but let me be happy,...
