Shiva-Sakthi (1)

“The might of the Hindu society was never for the destruction while it is only reassuring to the virtuous ones. It gives inspiration to the evils to become virtuous. Shiv SHakti Sangam is a manifestation of the power of such virtuous people,” said Shri. Bhaiyyaji Joshi, the Sarkaryvah of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. He was speaking at the occasion of foundation laying for the coming Shiv Shakti Sangam organized by the RSS Western Maharashtra Prant. The foundation was laid by the hands of Swami Swaroopanand Sarswati of Sagar Ashram, Phulgaon at village Marunji near Hinjewadi, Pune. RSS Prant Sanghchalak Nana Jadhav, Pune Mahanagar Sanghchalak Bapu Ghatpande, other functionaries of the RSS and other dignitaries were present at the occasion. The ceremony was officiated by the priests coming from the deprived classes of the society, especially from Mochi and Matang communities, who were trained in priesthood.

Speaking at the occasion, Shri. Joshi said, “The power of the virtuous ones stands only when the evil is finished. RSS is working to create power of the virtuous for the last 90 years. RSS is not limited now to any particular caste, particular region nor is it confined to urban areas and the work of RSS has reached to all strata of the society. This same youth power is the answer to all problems in the country”.

Swami Swaroopanand Sarswati said, “Organization is needed to bring together the Hindu society which is divided in castes and creeds. Hence, the programs like Shiv Shakti Sangam are the need of the hour.”

In his introduction, Prant Karyvah Vinayakrao Thorat said that The Sanghik of the RSS, so big as this, is taking first time in Pune after the camp was held at Taljai in 1983. Thorat told the gathering that in view of the drought situation in the state, the Swayamsevaks of the RSS are involved in collecting funds as well as starting fodder camps through the Jankalyan Samiti. Thorat said that 45,475 individuals have completed online registration till now for the Shiv Shakti Sangam. General Manager of the Sangam Kailash Sontakke informed about the different arrangements in the camp and departments working for these arrangements.
