Dexterity Global's Founder and CEO Sharad Sagar and Swami Nikhileswarananda, a senior monk of the Ramakrishna Order—the order of monks founded by Swami Vivekananda—delivered a special classroom for students, scholars and faculty of Harvard. The classroom took place in Sever Hall—the same hall where Swami Vivekananda delivered a lecture in 1894.
