Swamiji the madeofgreat

People come and people go, but their values and principle always remain and leave an indelible impression on society and common people. There are a number of great people born on planet earth who gave lot of the things to us and received recognition by their humanitarian work. I would like to mention one great man of the era who emphasised my life as well as a role model for a considerable mass. 

He was none another than Swami Vivekananda ji who lived for a short span of time. He died very young at the age of 39. But he was able to create a recognition by his knowledge, intellect and humanitarian activities. He made India proud on the globe by his act and speeches. He strongly supported Hindutva and Yoga and revealed the actual meaning of these. He was a strong supporter of Vedanta philosophy.

 He worked so hard to bring the humanity all above and sacrificed his life for it. He represented India as a preacher of Vedanta philosophy to the whole world. Swami ji insisted people to adapt and practice yoga irrespective of religion, cast and creed. He was meditation guru to the world and emphasised people to perform on regular basis for internal cleansing of mind and heart. He established Ram Krishna Mission on the sacred name of his Guru Ram Krishna Paramhansha in Kolkata. That is one of the biggest centre of Yoga and meditation in India on the holy bank of river Hoogly. He had a iconic value for the Youth and because of it, his birthday is celebrated as World Youth Day. It is celebrated on 12th of Jan every year. Swami ji emphasised on art, culture and science. People like him was born once in era and was remembered forever. He strongly accepted the philosophy of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam. He was born great and left for heaven as a great too. People follow him not only in India but all over the world because of his knowledge, intelligence and generosity. He will be a role model for the Planet Earth till its existence. 

He was best known for his powerful and influencing speech at the Parliament of World Religion on Hinduism in Chicago, USA in ‎1893. He believed in the teaching of Bhagvat Gita and revival of Hinduism in India. He fought against the poverty. He believed that the essence of Hinduism is best explained in Vedanta Philosophy. He linked morality with truth and control of mind. He also believed that the success is the outcome of focused thought and action. JRD Tata was influenced by Swami Ji to  establish the Indian Institute of Science in Banglore to facilitate science and technology in India on international level.  

Swami ji was a wonderful orator and writer. He composed many poems and songs. He was mainly known for this speech but did literary works too.  He was a painter as well as a singer.  

Finally, as a conclusion, I would suggest everyone to go through his biography, works and philosophy to understand the real meaning of Vedanta and Humanity. This is  what makes him #madeofgreat.
Made of reminded me also tatamotors( and this time it is teamed up with none other than legendary Lionel Messi. 

So let me know that do you think of Tata Motors association of Lionel Messi? Answer in comment section are most welcome.


  1. Tata Motors and Lionel Messi have many things in common. Firstly both of them have highly credible performance record. Secondly they are both made of great material. Indeed there couldn't have been any other brand ambassador than Messi for Tata Motors

  2. High time to follow people who sacrificed their life for humanity.

  3. Amazing post. Tata stands for honesty, simplicity yet shines through as committed to excellence and perseverance. In the same breathe Lionel Messi is a legend who has made a mark with his relentless dedication to his game. And thus the association is that of perfection and truthfulness.

  4. Very informative post, Rahul! I am also a follower of Swami Vivekananda due to his preaching and philosophies.

    I would say that Tata’s have found the most ideal person as their brand ambassador with Lionel Messi. Messi is a world renowned football player having millions of die-hard fans across the globe. He is also a youth icon and an inspiration to millions of people. Messi has also taken the right decision by choosing to endorse Tata Motors. Tata Motors is a globally renowned brand having high quality products to suit every budget- right from Nano to the luxurious Jaguar.

    I am quite sure that this partnership will go a long way and definitely benefit both of them in the long run!

  5. A great post.. while we all know Swami ji's contributions, we don't take such time out to celebrate the same! thanks for creating this opportunity! I feel that Tata Motors by associating with Messi has also created one such opportunity to celebrated the fabulous genius of that man! :)

  6. Tata Motors and Messi compliment each other like aloo does to Samosa. Tata Motors and Lionel Messi have many things in common. Tata Motors and Messi compliment each other just like aloo and Samosa. Firstly both of them have highly credible performance record. Secondly they are both made of great material.

  7. The story of a Legend in himself – that’s how I will describe it in a short sentence. Very well written with words which enhance the simplicity yet greatness of the person. Salutations and very happy for you to have got inspired and bringing out your best in life.

    My answer: Tata is a name which any and every person can rely on for its honesty, commitment and perseverance. Lionel Messi is a legend who has carved his name in history books with total dedication to the game, simple living and improvisation which is seen with each game he plays. The association of Tata Motors and Lionel Messi as their Brand Ambassador will definitely give an edge to the Tata group over its competitors solely because the brand Ambassador also holds the same reputation of not letting his fans down ever, like Tata Motors who have given the best to the world over the decades. Its an exemplary association par excellence.

    Here is my answer
    The association of Tata Motors with Lionel Messi is that of two greats. Lionel Messi has been exceptionally talented who with his hard work, determination and sacrifices has got better and tougher in his chosen sport so is the Image, reputation and quality of TATA Motors that have transformed brilliant ideas into masterpieces of engineering and created a brand and products that we are so proud of as Indians.

So Lionel Messi is the best choice for becoming the brand Ambassador for TATA Motors

  9. Dear Rahul,

    Very well written, what I feel is, in being great is being nice and gentle and looking at smaller thing to make it big.

    Learning, practising, falling and again learning is a never ending continuous process.

    What it takes to make it through to #madeofgreat is "HARD WORK".

    #TATAmotors association with #Messi as brand ambassador is recognising and giving respect to each other's decades of hard work.

It is a brand that has stood the test of time just like Lionel Messi who tackles opposition on the field with his skill,agility,strategy,brilliance and raw power to reach and score a goal so has been the track record of TATA motors who has become a brand leader and a global giant.

    Like minds think and act alike looking at the track record of TATA Motors it has stood the test of time and built a business that was built using bricks of hard work on a foundation of trust. Authenticity, reliability, simplicity, as well as its commitment to innovation are the trademarks of brand TATA Motors. These same qualities are present in Lionel Messi who with his immense talent has made a mark for himself on the international football field .Facing all hardships he has worked hard toiling on the fields and in training sessions facing injuries and pressure to come out trumps and be a winner. Thus these two greats Lionel Messi and TATA Motors are made for each other .There association is a bond of two legends

    Fingers crossed :)

  12. Yours is a very well written post your .Its is a very nice description of #madeofgreat
    TATA Motors is a brand associated with performance, endurance and excellence. These words are also synonymous with Lionel Messi who plays as a forward and weaves his magic on the football field.Just as Lionel Messi is considered the best footballer in the world ,TATA motors which is Indias premier automotive manufacturer gives wheels to the people of India with its wide range of vehicles. Both believe in excelling in whatever they do and set examples for others to follow. They compliment each other as both are reliable trustworthy and leaders thus Lionel Messi is the natural choice as the brand ambassador of TATA Motors

  13. Absolutely agree with what you said here so nicely :)

    When it comes to impact and impacting millions of lives, Yes, we can see both Tata Motors and Lionel Messi being the pioneers here. While the very name Tata is enough to make us go back to all our history books where we have seen there hardly is a comparable name that has contributed so much to the society in such an ethical manner, the very name Messi conjures up images of a boy-man who has turned the world upside down with his talent, determination, discipline and never-give-up spirit. The compatibility between the values they both share is intense and that is the reason this partnership works perfectly.

    With a concern for the society at large,everything that Tata has done has inspired us to dream big, conquer the world and pour all our energy back into the society to do good and inspire good. By facing his demons, Messi has done the same. He enjoys a God-like status in the world today because he dared to dream, achieved the sky and still hasn't lost his humanity a bit. He is still a child at heart and he gives back with his multiple philanthropic activities just like Tata does!

    Talk to any person in India, ask them about the companies they admire the most. Tata is right there at the top. This name is beyond bottomline, spreadsheets, return on investment and share price. It is equivalent to soul of India-soft, kind, diverse, dynamic, eternal. Just like that Messi has emerged as not just another football player but someone whose very life is an inspiration, whose personal struggles are a template for others to emulate and who has morphed into an eternal legend.

    While it would take eons to write about what makes Tata Motors and Messi great, as their list of achievements is too long for us to even skim over, suffice to say that this partnership is for the ages. As they say, some things are made in heaven :)

    Thank you for this opportunity.
