“Adhishji lived the life of a nishkam karmayogi. Whatever he could, he did in this birth, and we hope he will come again to complete his unfinished tasks. The soul of a holy life has departed, but the inspiration of that life still exists for all of us to imbibe,? said Shri Mohan Bhagwat, Sarkaryavah of RSS while paying tribute to Adhish Kumar, the Akhil Bharatiya Prachar Pramukh of RSS who passed away fighting against cancer in New Delhi on July 5. The condolence meeting was organised by Delhi Prant of RSS. FICCI auditorium, the venue of the condolence meeting, was full to its capacity. Hundreds of people belonging to various organisations and political leaders paid their tribute to the late young Sangh Pracharak. The family members of Adhishji including his parents were also present on the occasion.
Shri Bhagwat further said the departure of Adhishji is definitely grief stricken but not irreparable for the Sangh. ?The death of a dedicated worker in such a young age is highly painful. He was a living example of the things that the Sangh teaches or preaches. The death of a worker who develops innumerable number of new workers is very agonising. He proved in his life how the life is made dedicated and how the death is made a festival. He never complained to anyone about his sufferings till he breathed his last. He always thought about the Sangh work and the workers. The swayam-sevaks used to see the image of Dr Hedgewar in Adhishji. Those who have seen or worked with Adhishji will never forget him. He was a practical example of what is taught in the Sangh Shiksha Vargas of first, second and third year,? he added.
Earlier, paying his tribute BJP president Shri Rajnath Singh described Adhishji as a great tapasvi who perhaps came to the earth to complete his incomplete tapasya of the last birth. He was a Pracharak with a difference. He wanted to use the new technology in the Sangh work. Besides starting a chain of Vishwa Samvad Kendras across the country, he also started a website from Lucknow, which proved to be a hit not only among swayamsevaks but also among the opponents. He brought the people of different ideologies nearer to the Sangh through the Samvad Kendras. Shri Champat Rai, joint secretary general of VHP, said his behaviour and style of speaking influenced others. Shri Brahmdev Sharma ?Bhaiji? of Vidya Bharati said Adhishji was an extraordinary student of Saraswati Vidya Mandir, Agra. He was never seen tense despite having any serious trouble. The collection of thousands of book shows his extreme love for books.
Shri Atul Kothari, joint organising secretary of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, said Adhishji had a unique quality to influence people and those who came into his contact became his admirer. His life was an inspiration for all. He kept himself away from politics. Shri Nekshayam Shamsheri, Kshetra Sanghachalak of Western Uttar Pradesh, said extreme affection towards Adhishji is still there in every family of the region of Western Uttar Pradesh. Wherever he worked he made friends and left lasting impression of his personality. He had the habit to go deeper into any ideology and understand it deeply. He was not allergic to any view and had the quality to find and imbibe good things from that. In such a short life he started various new projects and left so many works for us to complete, he added.
Uttar Kshetra Pracharak Shri Dinesh Chandra gave the brief detail of Adhishji'slife. He said he had the quality to lead the workers and get the work done within the stipulated time-frame. He also had the quality to take initiatives. While working as Vibhag Pracharak in Meerut he started the tradition to observe the anniversary of 1857 War of Independence on May 10 every year. He used to emphasise that every swayamsevak should be seen in the role of a good citizen and wherever he works or sits he should propagate and protect the Hindu view. He said Adhishji was always worried about the Sangh work and even while in semi-unconscious state he used to ask the condition of the work from the workers who visited him for knowing his well-being. He knew about the fatal disease he was suffering from but he never showed the unbearable pain to anyone. Whenever he was asked he just said I am fine. He practically showed how to accept the death happily. (FOC)
