New Delhi: “Generally people remain committed to their values in the conditions of neglect or opposition, but it is difficult to do so in favourable condition. Sohan Singhji was exception to this. He remained the same in all conditions, as his life was dedicated to the Sangh,” said RSS Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat.

Besides the forward by Sarsanghachalak himself, a brief biography of the late Sohan Singhji, many senior RSS authorities, swayamsevaks and ministers from the Central government contributed in the book published by Prabhat Prakashan, New Delhi.
