Boy Vivekananda was very happy in Raipur. Because Raipur was situated in central India set in scenic beauty with salubrious climate. All around were lush green forests, velvety pastures, enchanting hills, and rivers, cascading water falls, birds calls and animal calls.

The new scene brought dramatic change in the health of Vivekananda of the batter.

Vivekananda felt his soul at peace in the company of the nature. He would go in to the forests for long walks, and sit at home.

Fluttering, leaves and branches of the trees, swaying bushes sweet calls of birds, ripping waters flushing streams whispering winds, sweet smell of the soil passed on spiritual lessons to the heart of vivekananda.

He would sit under trees for hours under the spell of the nature, imbibing its spiritual message.

For the teenager Vivekananda walking through the winding hill paths that funnelled into the thick forests felt pilgrimages.

Then Vivekananda started going akara, the traditional wrestlers gym. The push ups and other exercises result in growth of his body in wide chest, broad shoulder and muscular arms and legs.

He looked like a wrestler for more mature than his eyes.

Vivekananda spent two years in the company of his father. During this period the father and son came closer.

Mr. Vishwanath was a good look. He could prepare several delicacies and enjoyed being in kitchen. He taught Vivekananda cooking.

Vivekananda did not feel shy of asking uncomfortable questions to his father.
