Swami Vivekananda's letter

I came across this in an article by Prof. Kaushik Basu
in India Today. 

What Swami Vivekananda wrote on July 10, 1893, in a
letter to some friends in India, while travelling
abroad has not lost its relevance:"Come, see these people
and then go and hide your faces in shame ...Sitting
down these hundreds of years with an ever-increasing load
of crystallized superstition on your head... Come out
of your narrow holes and have a look abroad. See how nations
are on the march!"
