After the recent positive changes in Bharat, the world is looking at it with a greater hope and confidence because Bharat has been trusted as the most credible nation. It is now the duty of the Hindu society to reinstall Bharat as ‘Vishwaguru’ by internalising the values and ethos of samarasata and togetherness. This fervent appeal was made by RSS Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat in Nagpur on June 4, while addressing the valedictory function of 25-day long RSS Third Year Summer Training Camp at Reshambagh Ground. Chief of Karnataka Dharmasthal Padmavibhushan Dr D Virendra Hegde was the chief guest.
Other prominent dignitaries included ISRO Director M Annadurai, ISRO Group Director SV Sharma, Union Surface Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of State for Information Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and his wife Gayatri Devi, Director of Briks Design Brajesh and his wife Chamundeshwari Devi, Rajya Sabha MP Ajay Sancheti, MLAs Sudhakar Deshmukh, Vikas Kumbhare, Nago Ganar and former MP Banwarilal Purohit.
Shri Bhagwat underlined the fact that Bharat’s image has received a major boost with the change of government. The acceptance of more than three fourth member nations of the UN to Bharat’s proposal to observe International Yoga Day endorsed this, he said. There has been a growing feeling amongst the nations that Bharat is the only country that can be trusted, he added. Many countries have military, strategic and economic power which they use to establish their supremacy in the world. But these powers cannot remain with them permanently. Bharat is also developing these powers. But its real strength lies not in these powers. It is in the ethos, values and credibility. This is a very big attribute to our country, he added.
Calling to end all types of discriminations and divisions in the society he appealed to eradicate all differences, imbibe these eternal values in practical life, and internalise them to live together with others. This is must for organisation of the entire Hindu society, he added. We will not allow any division in the society. Hindu society must stand up by accepting brotherhood and humanity as culture to make Bharat the top most nation in the comity of nations. The world will respect us more once we re-establish ourselves as a nation that has more reliability and no ulterior motives. He said that the government is doing whatever it can within the ambit of the Constitution. But the society must do many things on its own. We have to prepare the society for this mission by giving it a sense of self-realisation and pure love. The RSS has been doing exactly this, he said.
Dharmasthal Dharmadhikari Padmavibhushan Dr D Virendra Hegde said the entire Hindu society should proudly accept its Hindu identity and remove all the differences of castes, creed etc. He strongly advocated for creating a sense of equality and harmony in the society. He recalled how the VHP succeeded in bringing together 170 saints and religious leaders on one platform and made an announcement that all Hindus are brethrens. He also recalled his association with the late Shri Guruji Golwalkar, the second Sarsanghachalak of the RSS and mentioned his contribution in removing social disparity. Recalling how all people in villages now associate with the work of temple renovation he said that this has been instrumental in eradicating differences based on caste. “I am the witness of this transformation”, he said. He praised the RSS swayamsevaks who rush to give relief and rescue the victims whenever there is a natural calamity and referred to such activities during the recent earthquake in Nepal.
Earlier, Yashvantbhai Chaudhary, Karyawah of the camp introduced the guests. He said there were 875 participants in the Varga from all over the country. They represented 16 linguistic groups but communicated in simple Hindi during the 25 day camp presenting an enviable example of unity in diversity. Sarvadhikari Govind Singh Tank, Chittor Prant Sanghchalak and was also present on the occasion.
