Tribute to Vishnuji : His service recalled

“The diversity of service projects by Sewa Bharati that we see in Sewa Bastis today is due to the tireless efforts of Vishnuji. He never imposed his thinking over the people rather involved them in the decision process. He truly lived the life of Nava Dhadhichi. He developed the service projects as a security net around the people who are being targeted by the alien forces,” said RSS Sarkaryavah Shri Bhaiyaji Joshi. He was paying tribute to veteran Sangh Pracharak Vishnu Kumar who had passed away in New Delhi on May 25. The condolence meeting was organised by Delhi Prant RSS on May 31.

Shri Bhaiyaji Joshi further said Vishnuji never stuck to the old pattern and kept his mind open for new things and ideas. He never tired while serving the people and successfully won the trust of the people. That is why he never stopped due to lack of resources. He started the service work in Delhi from zero and faced so many difficulties. Sometime many people tried to discourage him but he never got d…

The rivers Kalindi and Raimangal were turbulent and wind speed was not less than 60 km per hour even 24 hours after the cyclone lashed the Sunderbans.

They hired a large vessel with a capacity to carry about six tonnes relief materials for distributing among the cyclone-hit villagers separated from the mainland. Risking their lives, they finally reached Jetighat, Hemnagar, Mandirghat and Parghumta villages where thousands of marooned villagers had been awaiting the government relief for three days since the Aila blown away their hamlets. They had no food a…
