IT IS BETTER, FAR BETTER TO DIE ON THE FIELD OF DUTY - WORK UNTO DEATH
" Work unto death — I am with you, and when I am gone, my spirit will work with you. This life comes and goes — wealth, fame, enjoyments are only of a few days. It is better, far better to die on the field of duty, preaching the truth, than to die like a worldly worm. Advance! "
- Swami Vivekananda

" One year before he left for the US, he visited Mysore in 1892 and stayed in a small place, declining the invitation of the maharaja to stay in his palace. The small place is now in ruins while citizens and the authorities struggle to raise enough funds to build a memorial to Vivekananda.
Of the Rs 150 million needed to build the memorial, only Rs 50 million has so far been granted by the Karnataka State Government. The ruined building is located on a piece of land measuring 65 feet by 120 feet. Work is yet to begin as more funds are needed. "
