Rashtra Sevika Samiti completes 81 years of existence

Rashtra Sevika Samiti Pramukh Sanchalika Shantakka on Monday exhorted members of the organisation to keep our civilisational inheritance alive, strengthen the institution of family and pass on the cultural values to next generation to make nation strong.

Addressing 81st foundation day of Rashtra Sevika Samiti at Smruti Mandir, Shantakka took stock of effects of rapidly changing technology, sense of alienation, pursuit of material pleasure forgetting societal responsibility and how a woman is dealing with all the changes. Giving example from Hindu mythology, she said, “A society can be a good and disciplined place if every individual follows all the rules as per his responsibility.” Giving an example of how people waste vegetables and milk nowadays in the name of protest, she said ‘If there is no food, a human being can die and if there is no culture, humanity dies.”

Shantakka was speaking during Vijayadashmi Utsav on Monday at Smruti Mandir. Hundreds of Sevika Samiti members were present on the occasion on Monday evening. Former President of IMA Dr Warsha Dhawale was chief guest. Mayor Nanda Jichkar, Prant Sahsanghchalak of RSS Ram Harkare and other dignitaries were present.

After welcome prayers, 81 sevikas from Sayam Shakha and Gruhini Shakha performed participated in Ghosh pathak. Manish Sant, Akhil Bhartiya Shramik Pramukh, RSS, Pramila Medhe, Purva Pramukh Sanchalika, Ratnatai Hasegoan, Paschim Kshetra Sampark Pramukh, were prominently present in the programme. Dr Dhawle, Karuna Sathe, Nagpur Vibhag Karyavahika, Shantakka, Pramukh Sanchalika, Sitaji Annadanam, Pramukh Karyavahika, Rohini Athawale, Vidarbha Karyavahika were present on the dias.

Addressing the gathering, Dr Dhawle proudly recalled that she had formed the first women team in IMA during her tenure as President at IMA. She informed the members of Samiti about the positive and negative results of early and late marriage.

Dr Dhawle urged the society not to discriminate between a girl and a boy child. “Girls are equally important in the society and in today’s age, girls are no longer a burden for their parents or society. Girls are your jewels and very precious to life,” she said.

Being a Gyanaecologist, Dr Dhawle shared all important health tips related to female. She even informed that how difficult it was for her team to make people understand not to abort the female child earlier. “I am happy that the girl child is welcome today and in maximum cases, parents are happy with her birth,” she said.
