A mono-act musical play by Shekhar Sen
An NCPA Presentation
A spiritual man of fiery erudition and intense patriotism, and possessing an innate musicality, Swami Vivekananda raised interfaith awareness with his divine message of love, vasudhaiva kutumbakam—meaning the world is one family. Even today, the Ramakrishna Mission founded by Vivekananda is ceaselessly engaged in social and charitable work.
Vivekanand, a musical mono-act, is conceptualised, written and presented by Shekhar Sen, a celebrated singer, composer, lyricist and actor, who is internationally known for his super-hit mono-act musical plays such as Tulsidas, Kabir and Soordas. Having 32 song sequences that are skilfully woven through a fact-based narrative, the presentation unfolds the incredible transformation of Narendra, a child born and raised in a modest yet artistic family, to the towering philosopher whom the world came to know as Swami Vivekananda. Equally appealing to intellectuals and the spiritually inclined, this well-crafted presentation brings home the global impact of Vivekananda’s unforgettable speech at the first World’s Parliament of Religions in 1893 in Chicago, that put India and the timeless wisdom of Hinduism on the world map.
