First Year Sangh Shiksha Varga concludes in Delhi
Cultural education is the solution to many problems—Mahavir
“Sangh Shiksha Varga is a mahayajna of education and training, which inculcates a sense of discipline and respect towards Indian culture into young swayamsevaks. By educating children at the very young age only we can instill in them the spirit of patriotism,” said the RSS Akhil Bharatiya Sah Bauddhik Pramukh Shri Mahavir, while speaking at the concluding ceremony of a 20 day Sangh Shiksha Varga (first year) in New Delhi on June 15. Former IAS officer Shri Dinesh Tyagi presided over the function. Delhi Prant Sanghachalak Shri Kulbhushan Ahuja and Sahprant Sanghachalak Dr Shyam Sundar Agrawal also shared the dais.
Shri Mahavir further said the Indian ancient education system stressed on moral education and preached for universal brotherhood, but after the Independence the rulers changed the direction and objective of the education system. He said through the Sangh Shiksha Varga the Sangh tries to continue that old heritage of India. Drawing attention to the problems like Naxalism and December 16 gang rape case of Delhi, he said such menaces cannot be curbed unless the children are imparted proper cultural education. The Varga began on May 26 and a total of 244 swayamsevaks were imparted training. The trainees included businessmen, professionals and students. About 70 such camps were held all over the country this year in which 18,000 trainees received training. Presiding over the function Shri Dinesh Tyagi said future of India is bright in the hands of energetic youth only. He said the villages need to be exposed to new technology, which can bring a silent revolution in the country.
