New Delhi: “Books are written about the people who have accomplished success in their life. The leaders with charismatic actions are also spoken high through the books written about them. On Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a good number of books have been written. But the book written by Dr Bindeshwar Pathak, the Founder of Sulabh International, happens to be a special for the reason that Shri Pathak himself is an achiever like Shri Modi,” said RSS Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat while releasing a book, The Making of a Legend on Shri Narendra Modi on July 12. BJP president Shri Amit Shah was also present. Chairman of the National Book Trust Shri Baldevbhai Sharma presided over the function.
“We all know Shri Modi is a man with a wonderful personality, a person who has accomplished mission in his life and is known for his leadership skills. Though he has grown higher in fame, he remains the same humble
person who was once the Chief Minister of Gujarat or an ordinary swayamsevak. The cloud of fame has not made him change his attitude,” Shri Bhagwat said adding that it is essential to understand the fact behind the success of a successful person to prove oneself worthy. Without considering any task impossible and keep trying to carve out success, should be our goal in life, he added.
Shri Amit Shah narrated how Shri Modi as a child born in an ordinary family achieved the highest position in the country on the strength of his actions and qualities. The book provides a pictorial glimpse of his life. Dr Bindeshwar Pathak said untouchability has no place in Hindu society and he would continue his fight against it until it is completely eradicated. n

Former Pramukh Sanchalika of the Samiti Sushri Pramilatai Medhe delivered the talk on Mausiji’s concept of awakened Bharat. She said the Samiti celebrates the day as Sankalp Diwas every year and this year it is being celebrated with the pledge to awaken their own family members by Samiti workers.

Kolkata: Guru Purnima Utsav was observed all over the country on July 9. In West Bengal, the Utsav was observed by Sangh swayamsevaks in a pragmatic way at more than 3,500 places. A similar function was held in the evening of July 9 at the house of a Vanvasi swayamsevak, Shanti Ram Munda, at the Pathan Kali Village under Gosaba Police Station in South 24 Paragana District. About 15 school and college students also joined the function. All of a sudden, more than 100 Muslims attacked the house of Munda and took Zilla Karyavah Shri Sanjay Sinha, Zilla Pracharak Shri Parimal Dolui and Prasenjit Sarkar as hostage. They were ruthlessly beaten in front of the participants of the function. They also ransacked the house and looted valuables. After the local people along with other swayamsevaks went to Gosaba Police Station, the injured Sangh workers were released. But the police is trying to implicate them in false cases. n
Bhopal: RSS Sarkaryavah Shri Bhaiyaji Joshi said it is necessary to have a sensitive mind to realise the pain and sufferings of our brethren in the society. “Sewa is not a matter of competition. It is also not the mater to be counted in figures. Rather it is a matter to feel,” he said while launching a website (www.sewagatha.org) of the RSS Sewa Vibhag on July 10. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Madhya Bharat Prant Sanghachalak Shri Satish Pimpalikar and Sah Prant Sanghachalak Shri Ashok Pandey were also present. The website will provide updates on the RSS sewa activities, success stories and inspiring narrations of personalities dedicated to sewa.
Addressing the gathering Bhaiyaji said sewa is not done with any planning. As one feels the suffering of the people, sewa begins. “One does not release any advertisement to curb the weakness of one’s family or the society. Also the efforts to remove the weaknesses are not advertised. We should have the same feeling while serving the society. One should also not develop the feeling while serving anyone that one is doing any holy work. It is not the holy task but the duty. Therefore, one should have the feeling while serving that we are fulfilling our responsibility,” Bhaiyaji said.
He further said there are four sections in the society who need help. One, economically weaker, second, so-called untouchable following some wrong practices, third is nomads who have no permanent place to live and are deprived of even the citizenship. The fourth is Vanvasis who are deprived of even basic facilities.
Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan said the RSS swayamsevaks are serving the society selflessly.
