Swami Vivekananda in India: A Corrective Biography
Swami Vivekananda in india: A Corrective Biography attempts to inform the reader accurately about his life both before and after his historic visits to the West. Much material has been translated anew from original Bengali books. At the same time it challenges current popular and pious notions held about this humanitarian-monk. The four major chapters in this book are about his meetings with Sri Ramakrishna, his travels in India during 1886-1893, media waves about him in India, and his triumphant return from the West in 1897. Analysis of original eyewitness reports in both India and Western newspapers and periodicals forms an integral part of this biography.

This book is a collection of junk. The great person like Swami Vivekananda is seen as reviving Hinduism and India in our bad time of 19th century. He is the most inspiring figure for modern youths. During British ruling, India was seen with an inferiority eye. Swamiji was such a dynamic and magnificent personality to uplift India across world. We must appreciate his contribution. This book has done injustice by focusing on smaller issues and kept aside his major achievements. I also doubt the authenticity of examples given in this book and motive of author like defaming great Indians. Please read one authoritative life history from a reliable source - e.g. Life of Swami Vivekananda by His Eastern and Western Disciples. Reading this kind of book is a wastage of time. After-all one should use his valuable time to learn something good, not to waste on this kind of nonsense.
