About Us

Swami Vivekananda, born on the 12th January 1863, has been a great patriot monk of India with intense love for his motherland. He went to Kanyakumari and continuously for 3 days and 3 nights from 25th December, 1892 sat on the mid-sea rock meditating on India�s past, present and future. It was on this rock that he discovered the mission for a glorious India and later traveled not only to every corner of the country but all over the world to disseminate India�s spirituality. Swami Vivekananda traveled to the USA and participating in the World Parliament of Religions at Chicago, delivered his epoch-making speech on 11th September, 1893. There his greatness was instantly recognized and acknowledged as he stressed on co-existence of the religions and exhorted that different religions are only different ways to reach to the same goal. In honour of such a patriot and wandering monk who rested tremendous faith on the youth of the nation, Indian Government in the year 1984 declared his Birth Day to be celebrated as National Youth Day every year.
Vivekananda Kendra is a spiritually oriented service organization with its headquarters at Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu. On the same sanctified place where Swami Vivekananda had meditated for 3 days and 3 nights , Late Mananeeya Eknathji Ranade, with the participation of millions of people of India constructed the "Vivekananda Rock Memorial" in 1970. The memorial symbolises the mission of India as seen by Swami Vivekananda in his meditation. Mananeeya Eknathji Ranade envisaged creation of an organisation also to disseminate Swami Vivekananda's vision of a glorious India. This was formed in 1972 and named Vivekananda Kendra. The motto of Vivekananda Kendra is "Man Making and Nation Building" by awakening and intensifying a spiritual and nationalist urge among the youth and channelising it for national reconstruction. The Kendra has branch centres spread all over the country where various service activities are carried out through the medium of Yoga, Rural Development Programmes, Education , Development of Natural Resources , Organising Youth and Women camps, bringing out publications based on the life and messages of Swami Vivekananda etc.
Keeping the objective "Man Making and Nation Building" in mind, the Kendra has established Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalayas in North Eastern Region and some other states of India. Presently, there are 22 schools in Assam and Nagaland under the aegis of Vivekananda Kendra Shiksha Prasar Vibhag (VKSPV), Guwahati and Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalaya (NEC), Baragolai is one amongst these. Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalaya (NEC) , Baragolai established in the year 2000, is a co-educational English medium school affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi. Having classes from KG to XII (Science , Arts & Commerce) , the vidyalaya caters to the needs of the staff of North Eastern Coal Field at Margherita as well as the local residents of Baragolai and nearby areas like Digboi , Margherita, Ledo, Lekhapani, Jagun etc. The vidyalaya, besides looking into the academic excellence, is dedicated to help its students grow freely to develop their latent talents. It also makes every possible effort to make sure that the inherent faculties of its students are properly groomed and nurtured so that they grow up with the virtues of righteousness, fellow-feeling and love for the society and for the motherland. Besides, adequate emphasis is laid on the study of rich cultural heritage of the nation. To materialize this objective the vidyalaya strives its utmost and leaves no stone unturned. It is the result of this endeavour that today VKVian alumni are seen in different walks of life contributing their lot in the reconstruction of the society.
