RSS Third Year Sangh Shiksha Varga begins
NAGPUR, May 13: “We are committed to bring about a new transformation in the society, nay in the entire world. Anything new is not created sans pain and toil. Even a new birth is not without labour pains. We have come here to tone up our body, mind and intellect to become the vehicles of that change, the entire humanity is awaiting eagerly. Let us utilise each moment in this camp to transform ourselves first”, said Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Sahsarkaryavah Shri KC Kannan said while delivering his inaugural address after the formal opening of the 25-days long RSS Third Year Sangh Shiksha Varg (Training camp) at the serene ambience of the Maharshi Vyas Sabhagrih in Reshambag premises. Shri Kannan, who will be ‘guardian adhikari’ for the camp, exhorted the 600-odd participants drawn from all over the country to learn and acquire as much as they can during the period of training camp so that they can tame their physical, psychological, intellectual and spiritual strength to become the agents of change, the RSS desired to usher in the near future.
In his almost an hour-long spellbinding address in chaste Hindi with typical southern accent Shri Kannan said that all the swayamsevaks coming to Nagpur during the summer month for the training have to live and learn the techniques of the organisation in a special atmosphere and situation. The temperatures sore during the summer to new heights, language might be a problem for those who were not familiar with Hindi, and food might be not upto the taste. But braving all these odds the RSS swayamsevaks come here to perform their sadhana or penance to prepare them for the service of the society and motherland, he said.
Delving deep into the history of such training camps, he said that presently a number of facilities are made available to the swayamsevaks as compared to the early days to make their stay bearable. He said that he expects from all the participating swaysmsevaks that they would devote wholeheartedly to learn and acquire all that knowledge that would be imparted to them during the 25-day camp.
“We should participate in each and every activity here considering it as a worship of the God”, he said. Shri Kannan also exhorted the swayamsevaks to experience the inherent unity by mixing with their counterparts coming from different regions, and speaking different tongues. “We say that India is one and boast about our ‘Unity in Diversity’. Here is the chance for you to experience that unity”, he emphasised urging the swayamsevaks to take proper advantage of this opportunity to know and imbibe the percepts of different languages.
Referring to the discipline of the camp the RSS Sahsarkaryvah said that the discipline here is an instrument of enriching our lives for the cause of our motherland.
Earlier, the camp was formally inaugurated by lighting the traditional lamp by Dr Krishna Gopal, Sahsarkaryvah of RSS, Shri Pawan Jindal, Sarvadhikari of the camp, Shri Vitthal Kamble, Karyavah and Shri KC Kannan. Dr Krishna Gopal introduced the various adhikaris of the camp to the participants.
The inaugural session was attended among others by the RSS Akhil Bharatiya Sharirik Shikshan Pramukh Shri Anil Oke, his deputy Shri Jagadish, All India Bouddhik Pramukh Shri Bhagayya, his deputy Shri Mahavir, Sampark Pramukh Shri Hastimal, Shri Shankar Lal, Shri Balkarishna Tripathi, Dr Shankar Tatwavadi, senior pracharak Shri Rambhau Bondale, Shri Ramnarain, Vidarbha Prant Sahsanghachalak Shri Ram Harkare, and western region RSS Sahkaryavah Dr Ravindra Joshi.
