RSS sarsanghchalak said the best quality of Indian society is that it has been inspiring others for ages and also encourages youth.
New Delhi: The RSS sarsanghchalak Dr Mohan Bhagwat has said many civilizations came and even ended, but the Indian civilization is towards becoming world leader because it believes in taking all along and hence none has been able to destroy it.
At a Sant Eshwar Samman function, he said, while honouring those who did selfless service in different areas that the structure of Indian society is such that it does not oppose anyone. Whether one adopts a worship system or not, one works with the feeling of sewa as per his capacity. This is one thing which is a form of human being, and one gets this quality only when he is full of purity, politeness, compassion and believes in taking all together and does not oppose anyone. He said the best quality of Indian society is that it has been inspiring others for ages and also encourages youth.
Dr Bhagwat said the way society should have been moved forward after independence did not happen. But if society were to leave aside ego and make sensibility and compassion basis, one can attain development faster.
The RSS sarsanghchalak said of all the great personalities in the world, and maximum have been from India in past 200 years. It is good to be spiritual and believe in religions, but it does not teach us that we should walk on the path shown by me but only shows us the way and that it is good if I am walking on this path but if you also walk along it will be good. A person is known because of his thoughts and sensitivity because if these two are separated, there will be no difference between man and animal. There is a feeling of sewa in human beings for which he does not have to depend on anyone, either socially or economically. Because if our intention to work is honest and sincere, there will be no hurdle in completing that task.
Dr Bhagwat said it is one thing to have wisdom, but to give it a right and proper direction is in our hands. Not just economically but with our behaviour if we are gone by teaching something good to our family the future generations will never lose the right path. And today's youth have it in them to learn it quick and fast, which is really good. Whatever good virtues we leave with our deeds impact our families, and future generations follow those traditions and carry them forward. He said our life is like a bubble. Going more into spirituality is like falling in a ditch, he remarked.
The special guest and union minister Shri Arjun Munda said this function is being held for those who worked for society without any favour or recognition in mind. They are tirelessly doing their job. They are taking forward the journey of social work so that they can do something in their life. We are thankful to them all for their immense contribution to the making of new India. We all do social work in different ways, but those who have not been given any such responsibility and are doing it on their own are called real children of Mother India.
The minister said we should be proud that in Amrit Mahatosava, we are also celebrating new tribal days, which means we are working for nation-building along with those living in remote areas. We are proud that on the occasion of Birsa Munda birth anniversary, we will be celebrating it annually as Janjatiya Gaurav Diwas from now onwards. He said that until we work for the betterment of people living in remote areas, the dream of making a new India will remain unfulfilled.
Several organizations and personalities engaged in various social service areas were honoured on occasion by Sant Eshwer Foundation and Rashtriya Sewa Bharti. Like every year, this time too, 12 personalities and organizations were honoured with Rs 1 lakh each. The samiti's chairman Shri Kapil Khanna said these personalities and organizations tried to identify the problems in the society and tried to solve them on their own with their own limited resources available to them rather than going to the concerned government or blaming somebody.

He said in the series of these efforts and social works, and the foundation gives special awards to four personalities and self-dependent organizations every year with Rs 4 lakh each.
