Bhagwat laments lack of "affection" in society
Mumbai: RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat Friday
lamented the lack of "sense of affection" in the society and warned that a breakdown of communication would lead to divisions.
Speaking at an award function here, Bhagwat said a strong
and united society could emerge only if the deprived and the
downtrodden sections were given a helping hand by the rich,
educated classes, to enable them join the mainstream.
"People these days are losing sense of affection
(`atmiyata`). If communication (within the society) breaks
down, that would lead to divisions.
"India is rich in natural resources, wealth, education
and its people are respected all over the world. But there are
still deprived, downtrodden sections who have never got opportunities," he said.
"However, in this darkness, there are people like Narsinh
Zare who works for the nomadic tribes so that they get their
rightful place in the society," Bhagwat said, after
felicitating Zare with the second `Keshavshrusti` award.
