Prominent leader of Hinduism, Swami Vivekananda, whose birth name was Narendra, gave a historic speech in the US in 1893. 126 years later, another Narendra, that is PM Narendra Modi, gave another historic speech in the US that left yet another indelible mark in history books.
You may ask what's in a name? But here is an example of how a name has made India proud despite the fact that both the events were held over a century apart. The name that made India proud is Narendra.
In 1893, it was Swami Vivekananda, whose birth name was Narendra. He spoke on Hinduism on the land of the US to spread the true meaning of Hinduism and the ideals of India to the rest of the world.
In 2019 another Narendra, i.e. PM Narendra Modi spoke at the Howdy Modi event in the US and made the US and other countries look up to India with respect again.
Yes, both, the Narendra in 1893 and Narendra in 2019 have made India proud.
