Khudiram and Chandra Devi Are Chosen

By Bill Davis

Host: Khudiram and Chandra Devi Are Chosen. A one-act play in six scenes. Prologue. Sister Nivedita speaks.

Swami Vivekananda: What the world wants today, is twenty men and women who can dare to stand in the street yonder and say that they possess nothing but God. Who will go?
