What makes Swami Vivekananda a youth idol, whose words are still cherished by people and who serves as an inspiration for the youth?

‘All nations have attained greatness by paying proper respect to women. That country and that nation which do not respect women have never become great, nor will ever be in future, amen.’
According to this monk, the downfall of the country was mainly due to the disregard shown to women. He firmly believed that there is no distinction between sexes and moreover he considered women as divine mother. ‘The idea of perfect womanhood is perfect independence’, said Vivekananda.
