RSS Sarsanghchalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat visited Justice VR Krishna Iyer at latter’s residence on October 21, 2013. This is outcome of the letter correspondence they had couple of months before. Shri Bhagwat, in his letter, had expressed his wish to meet Justice Krishna Iyer when he visits Kochi.
Sri Krishna Iyer told Shri Bhagwat that he had invited the wrath of some people due the support he extended to Narendra Modi. But, he does not care. He likes to see and support honest people. Sri Modi came to see him couple of years back. It was his own decision.
Shri Bhagwat told Sri Krishna Iyer that honesty is a precious commodity these days. We, in Sangh, keep on meeting honest people. It is they who influence the social consciousness.
He said that, he has been wishing to meet Sri Krishna Iyer since long time; but, it is materialised only now. “It is my good fortune to meet Justice VR Krishna Iyer today”, He added that Sri Krishna Iyer is a fatherly figure for all of us, a true Judge in words and spirit. He embodies all the noble values in social life, which is fast diminishing. I found him very honest, committed to truth, fearless, sincere and well intentioned.
When it was mentioned that Justice Krishna Iyer turns 99 next month, Shri Mohan Bhagwat told that according to Bharatiya tradition complete life is 120 years. He wished Sri Krishna Iyer such a long life. Shri Bhagwat told Krishna Iyer that coming years would witness good happenings. Society is undergoing lot of changes. He sought Sri Krishna Iyer’s blessings for all good happenings. Sri Krishna Iyer said that Bhagwat’s visit was a great experience.
