?Ma. Babuaji left for heavenly abode today morning at 5 am. The third year Sangh Shiksha Varga of Praudh swayamsevaks has concluded today itself. Before the concluding ceremony, Ma. Bhaiyaji Joshi informed the swayamsevaks about this sad news, gave details about Babuaji'slong association with the Sangh and then all the workers observed two-minute silence to pay their tribute to the departed soul.
Ma. Babuaji was among those blessed swayamsevaks who got an opportunity to work under the guidance of all the Sarsanghachalaks. Only a very few such swayamsevaks are alive today. The importance of Ma. Babuaji was that P.P. Doctorji himself had made him a Sanghachalak and since then, leaving one and a half years of his life at later stage, he held this responsibility from Nagar Sanghachalak to Kshetra Sanghachalak. His amiable personality, quality to make friends and the capability to guide appropriately to all, made him popular not only in the Sangh circle but also in all sections of the society.
Despite having such qualities nobody coming into his contact ever felt arrogance in him. It was because of this, he was popular not only among all sections of the society but also among the leaders of various political parties. He always had a desire to work as an ordinary swayamsevak, since right from the beginning he had been a Sanghachalak. He expressed this desire to me many times. It was because of his repeated insistence that he was relieved from the responsibility of a Sanghachalak about one-and-a-half years back and since then he worked as an ordinary swayamsevak. As an ordinary worker too he presented an ideal for all workers.
A vacuum has been developed with the departure of such a personality. But it is the rule of the nature that one who is born, has to depart one day. Ma. Babuaji left for the heavenly abode but he left many ideals for us to follow. My heartiest condolence on behalf of all the swayamsevaks.?
