RSS Sarkaryavah V. Bhagayya said in Kochi that Justice (Retd. Kerala High Court) Kemal Pasha is a man of great courage and outspoken personality who lives for justice. His approach to the issues are true and natural. Bhagayyaji was referring to Jce Pasha who had addressed the Gurupooja-Gurudakshina programme of RSS in Kochi on August 9. Jce Pasha was the chief guest of the evening.
Bhagayyaji said, bad people surpass good people, because, they are more organized. He said, Sangh workers draw inspiration from Vedavyasa. In Sangh, personality cult is not encouraged. Sangh workers respect all; but no room for hero worship in Sangh.
Gurupooja is the festival of sacrifice, samarpan. Sangh founder Dr. Keshav Baliram Hedgewar showed this methodology before the Sangh workers. He was jailed more than once in connection with the independence struggle.
Gurupooja is the day for worshipping the Guru of Sangh, that is, Bhagawadhwaja. Saffron is the colour of sacrifice. Monks live the life of sacrifice, just like plants accept the carbon dioxide exhaled by men and animals and keep on generating oxygen. Our source of inspiration is the glorious past of the country. It enables us to keep on working for the society and the nation. Sun works 365 days. The whole universe is depending upon sun. Still it does not have any sort of ego. Sun comes in a colour and goes back in the same colour. Similarly swayamsevaks work for the society and the nation with absolute consistency. Once a swayamsevak came on wheelchair to offer Gurudakshina in the sanghstan. A worker told him he did not have to come to Dhwaja for samarpan; some one else could do it on his behalf. The idea was to reduce his difficulties. But, he would not retreat; he said, he had been doing it for 65 years continuously.
Sahsarkaryavah said, diversity is the beauty of the universe. Our method is love, not terrorism. AK47 is not terrorism, but is the instrument for terrorism. “Mine is the only path for salvation” leads to terrorism. Hindus can not be fundamentalists hence Bharath can not fundamentalist. In USA, Hindus of Bharatiya origin collect food and feed the poor blacks. More than 4 crores of the population are poor there. Hindus do not go for conversion as the quid pro quo for this charity. Because they believe in the following shantimanthra :
ॐ सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः
सर्वे सन्तु निरामयाः ।
सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु
मा कश्चिद्दुःखभाग्भवेत् ।
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥
Dr. Hedgwar used to tell that none is to blame foreigners for our plight; it is our own fault. So, we have to groom ourselves for working for the country’s glory. Back in 1967, a young student swayamsevak offered Rs 160 as his gurudakshina. Every body knew his family situations. His father was not alive. Mother was a domestic help. Later on it was found out that he went for head load work after schooling and shakha. We do not collect any money from the daily shakaha. Our gurudakshina is the offering of our heart. In another words, swayamsevaks offer their life.
Bhagayyaji referred to government schools in his talk. They should undergo tremendous changes. It is the resort of the ordinary as well as poor people. He called upon Sangh workers to work for the uplift of government schools in the villages.
Bhagayyaji added that no scarcity of good hearts in the society. Once a 14 year old boy came to a house. He said, he would clean the garden. He did not need wages but a meal. The home maker agreed. He did a wonderful job. And, when he got the food he packed them in a polythene bag. The housewife asked him why did he pack it. He said, it was for taking home; his mother had to take some medicines after her food. He did not have anything back home to feed his mom. That housewife compelled him to eat that food and she carried another packet and went to the boy’s home with him and fed the mother of that great son.
Sarkaryavah insisted on organic farming as well. He told, Punjab is the richest agricultural state in the country. But, reckless use of pesticides and fertilizers made it a state of cancer. He concluded his speech saying that at the end of the day, truth comes out victorious. Common people carry God in them, just like Narasimha came out from the pillar.
