Morari Bapu in Chitrakoot
“The Rashtramantra given by Rashtrarishi Nanaji Deshmukh that ‘I am not for myself but for my own people and those are my own people who are neglected and underprivileged’ can change the picture of the entire nation. This mantra should be spread all over the country,” said noted Ramkatha Vachak Shri Morari Bapu. He was addressing a gathering of Deendayal Research Institute (DRI) workers at Rammanohar Lohia Auditorium in Chitrakoot on March 23.
In the beginning, Dr Nandita Pathak of DRI welcomed Morari Bapu and highlighted some of the activities carried out by the DRI. She specifically mentioned the 1045 km Swavlamban Abhiyan padyatra conducted some years back under the leadership of Nanaji to raise the feeling of self-reliance among villagers.
In his blessings, Shri Morari Bapu said he had high regards for Nanaji and whenever he met Nanaji he realised the great work done by him. He said the organisation which has spiritual feelings makes tremendous success. If we look at the journey of Mahatma Gandhi we find that it was the spiritual feeling that granted him the energy to do great works. He said Nanaji might have departed now, but his internal spiritualism is still in Chitrakoot. “The Rashtramantra given by him will play a key role in transforming the life of rural India. The torch of rural uplift that Nanaji lighted from here will make our villages self-reliant,” he said.
