“Spirituality is the soul of this nation and without spirituality it is just like a lifeless body without soul,” she said. She recalled how our Gurukul system, self-esteem and identity were destroyed by introducing the foreign education system in the country by the colonial forces and subjected us to slavery. It was after Independence that the Rashtra Sevika Samiti was formed to enable our women to lead a life with pride and emerge out of the shadows of colonial slavery. Over 650 Sevikas in full ganavesh participated in the pathsanchalan. Smt. Jayalakshmi Dhamle, Headmistress of Sneha Educational Trust presided over.
