Courage, dedication, sacrifice and will to win are the basic attributes of a true Swayamsevak. No organisation could stand without these attributes. Therefore, to acquire these attributes for national building will be a real tribute to Shri Guruji Golwalkar, said Chief National Spokes Person of Bharatiya Janta Party, Dr Sambit Patra on Sunday.
Dr Patra was delivering a lecture on Shri Guruji Golwalkar organised by Paschim Nagpur Navyuvak Mandal at Basket Ball Ground, Pandey Layout. MLC Anil Sole presided over the event while Sudhir Waradpande also shared dais.

Dr Patra compared life of Madhav Shadashiv Golwalkar, the second Sar Sanghachalak of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) with the fire in ‘Yadnya Kund’. Nation building is a process of Yadnya and the great visionary Shri Guruji sacrificed his life in the Yadnya Kund by saying ‘Idam Na Mama’. The Yadnya is still continuing, but the country is lacking the dedicated persons like Shri Guruji. Now, the workers do not want to sacrifice their lives without any expectations. These workers should do self introspection and find whether they are having ‘Shri Guruji’ in their heart in the form of his teachings, he appealed.

Dr Patra narrated the story of King Sagar and how his great grand son Bhagirath was succeeded in bringing river Ganga on this earth. He co-related the story with the life of Dr Hedgewar and Guruji. As Bhagirath brought down the water of the heavenly Ganga to the earth by the power of his severe penance, and nourished and enriched the land of Bharat. In the same manner, Param Pujaniya Doctorji, brought the life stream of Param Pujaniya Guruji, who was on a spiritual path to Liberation (moksha), for the service of the people of Bharat. Thus, he (Dr. Hedgewar) carried to fulfillment the mission he had started to unite, organize and strengthen the Hindu society, he added.

Dr Patra shared number of anecdotes from the life of Shri Guruji and how he sacrificed his life for keeping the great culture of India alive.
Guruji infused a unique intrinsic power into the national life through his unmatched personality and actions. One of Shri Guruji’s major innovations was an anti-communist, anti-socialist ideology, with the slogan ‘Not socialism but Hinduism.’ Dr Patra elaborated the concept referring the then situation in India.

Earlier, the workers of The Southern Nagpur Co-operative Housing Society and Khamla Plot Holders Co-operative Housing Society welcomed Dr Patra. Anand Kitkaru recited personal song. Prof Manoj Tiwari and Sanjay Dabir welcomed the guests.

When ‘The Hitavada’ published appeal of Shri Guruji

Dr Patra appreciated ‘The Hitavada’ stating that after the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi on January 30, 1948, the then Government imposed a ban on RSS. Guruji Golwalkar and 20,000 Swayamsevaks were arrested on February 4, 1948. Shri Guruji opposed the injustice and stood strong in front of Government which was using its power, strength, machinery and system against RSS. Shri Guruji sent letters to number of news papers in India about his stand. No news paper had guts to publish the stand of Shri Guruji except ‘The Hitavada.’ The paper had faced lot of trouble from the Government, but it had kept its stand.
