The ideal Swayamsevak
It is the busy bypass road in Paramathi Velur, Karur district of Tamil Nadu. An elderly Muslim man in rags goes from shop to shop seeking alms. He walks with difficulty due to extreme hunger past a hotel and a welding shop where he meets with a negative response. Next is a transport booking office. In a routine dull voice, he seeks alms. The manager, Shri Sivakumar immediately gets up from his seat leaving the work on hand behind. He takes the old man to the hotel where he was earlier turned away. Buys a hearty meal for the old man. After paying the bill he goes back to his desk and resumes work. Here a pertinent fact, namely, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh imparts an attitude of service without any expectation cutting across barriers of caste, class or religion. Yes, Shri. S. Sivakumar is a Swayamsevak and is the Taluka Karyavah of RSS.
