Speaking about Swami Vivekanada’s address in at Parliament on Religion in Chicago on 11 September, 1983, PM Modi said people in India remember 9/11 of 1893. “Today is 9/11…this day became widely spoken about after 2001 but there was another 9/11 of 1893 which we remember. Just with a few words, a youngster from India won over the world and showed the world the power of oneness,” the Prime Minister said.
