    1. The 2 stars are for the poor writing of Mr. Sengupta. He tries too hard to make his point about Vivekananda being a modern monk, sacrificing the objectivity of a biographer in most places. Besides, Mr. Sengupta writes repeatedly about how his own upbringing was influenced by Vivekananda, how he was also an unruly child like Vivekananda, and so on. There are several quotes from Vivekananda, but at times distributed in a way that the text loses continuity. Overall, while the reader gets to learn i [...]

    5. This is a whimsical, stream of consciousness style book on Vivekananda. This Book is a collection of some stray topics related to Vivekakanda. Unfortunately the ideas are not very well developed. Chapters have longish quotations from other other books and these make reading the book even more tedious. This book is neither a biography, nor a book about Vivekananda's ideas nor is it a book about one persons experience of Vivekananda. It is strange hodgepodge that does not work very well.
