Shri Suresh Joshi, Sarkaryavah, RSS said, “Our identity can be expressed in two words, civilisation and culture. The challenge today is to maintain our identity by preserving our civilisation and culture. We have to give out one message to the entire world. To protect our nature, this is our culture. We have to safe guard it. If there is a challenge, if there is a question, it is the one on how the rest of the world proceed in towards peace”. (“Hamari identity kya hai, yeh do sabdo mei vyakt hoti hai, sabhyata awem sanskriti. Isliye aaj koi chunoti hai toh iss sabhyata aur sanskriti ko surakshit rakhte huye saare vishwa ke saamne hum apni pehchaan banaye rakhein. Humne saare vishwa ko ek sandesh dia hai. To protect our nature, this is our culture. Issi ko bachakar rakhna hai.poori duniya mei agar koi chunoti hai, koi prashna hai toh yehi hai ki sesh vishwa shanty ke marg pe kaise chalega”)
