Don’t leave everything at the will of God — Mohan Bhagwat
RSS Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat questioned the double standards that most of the people follow in daily life. He said even if the schools impart quality education, it will not work if the students do not get equally healthy atmosphere at home. “People send their wards to Vidya Bharati schools for receiving good samskars, but at home they print the wedding cards in English. This will not work. Society has to contribute actively if we want to impart quality education to the children,” he said while speaking at a function in Mathura on June 14 after inaugurating an auditorium at Shrijee Baba Saraswati Vidya Mandir.
Shri Bhagwat said earlier the people used to leave everything on the God, but now they leave everything on the government. Instead of following this mentality we need to come forward to resolve our problems ourselves. Earlier, Union Minister of State for Tourism Dr Mahesh Sharma applauded the work of Vidya Bharati. Shri Brahmdev Sharma ‘Bhaiji’ said there are many places where the governments have failed to make arrangements for education, but the Vidya Bharati has reached those places too. Prominent among those who were present on the occasion included Union Minister of State for HRD Shri Ramshankar Katheria, MP Shri Babulal, Kshetra Pracharak Shri Alokji, Kshetra Sanghachalak Shri Darshanlalji and Chancellor of GLA University Shri Narayan Das Agrawal.
