SWAMI VIVEKANANDA

– Episode 10

(DD Podhigai, Saturday, 9 p.m.)

Even as his friends are celebrating Naren’s graduation, he gets the shocking news of his father, Vishwanath Dutta, passing away. His father's cunning relatives try to appropriate his assets by fraudulent means. Naren is in a depressed mood, and his friends try to cheer him up by organising a cocktail party. Having arrived there without knowing what is in store, and unable to respond to this gesture of his friends, Naren walks away from the venue. Tales are carried to Sri Ramakrishna and Sarada Mata that Naren is keeping bad company. But they refuse to believe anything against their disciple. Meanwhile, a well-meaning friend meets Naren’s mother and offers her daughter in marriage to Naren with the promise of a hefty dowry to solve the family’s financial problems. His mother calls Naren to discuss the proposal.
