Speak English, but shun Western Culture – Bhaiyyaji Joshi
Dehradun (VSK). RSS Sarkaryavah Suresh Bhaiyaji Joshi, while addressing a gathering of Sangh swayamsevaks at the Parade Ground called upon the swayamsevaks engage in Basti seva, Gram seva, religious awakening, Hindu awakening rising above caste considerations, selfless service, nationalism and boycotting foreign goods. He said that we would study our own language and work in it. We may also study the English language but must watch against getting trapped in the western mindset and lifestyle.
He added that the Sangh Shakha is not merely a playground. The Shakha is a place where we learn how to make our life meaningful and socially oriented. “We come to shakha and become a swayamsevak, and then do some good things in the society”.
“We have to eradicate untouchabilty from the society. We say and accept that the Gods live in every creature of the Universe. Then how can we discriminate with our own people? We should not reduce our strength. Nobody is inferior in the Hindu society. It is our responsibility to make the weaker sections of the society strong. When we talk about probity, we talk about probity in action and mind both,” the Sarkaryavah added. When we talk of purity, it should be reflected in our mind and action. Just like if the water in a pond is polluted, it is polluted for all, similarly, if there is any defect in the society, it affects everybody in it. We need to remove any such defect.
Fifty-seven ‘shakhas’ of Dehradun mahanagar took part in the programme in which swayamsevaks presented regular activities like games,Yoga, Aasan, discussion and geet. At the end, the prayer was held.
Besides Bhaiyyaji, prominent among those who attended the function were kshetra pracharak Pramukh Jagdish Ji, Sampark pramukh Shashi Kant Ji, Prant pracharak Yudhvir Ji and sah prant pracharak Devendra Ji. About 57 Shakhas of the Managar joined the Shakha Darshan function. RSS Akhil Bharatiya Pracharak Pramukh Suresh Ji, and Mahanagar Sanghchalak Azad Singh Ji were also present on the occasion.
