Guwahati, Jan. 25.  A book on Swami Vivekanada by an Indian Salesian priest is scheduled to be released on 27th January prior to the Kolkata Book Fair due to start on 29 January.

The book entitled: Man Without Frontiers, the Ultimate Concern of Swami Vivekananda is a critical study of the philosophical anthropology of Swami Vivekananda by Dr. (Fr.) Maria Arokiam Kanaga from Tamilnadiu.
''It is a critical study of the entire philosophy of Swami Vivekananda, meant to create Hindu-Christian friendship and dialogue,'' says author Dr Kanaga speaking on the purpose and relevance of the publication.

He adds, ''My wish is that this book, which comes out after so many years, (1988) and is still found to be relevant, may help to bring Hindus and Christians towards greater understanding as Swami Vivekananda himself as a great bridge builder between people.''

The 532 page book is doctoral thesis published by InKdia Publications Kolkata to mark the occasion of 150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.

The Author Dr Maria Arokiam Kanaga, Salesian General Councilor for South Asia currently residing in Rome, will not be present at the book release.
