$img_titleRanchi: (VSK): Jharkhand Sewa Sangam-12 was organized at Ranchi from December 8-10, 2012 at premises of Ramtahal Chaudhary high school. The program was attended by 216 delegates representing 39 voluntary organizations engaged in various service activities.
The three-day conference was inaugurated by National Convener of Rashtriya Sewa Bharati Sundar Laxman and Mithilesh Narain, Prant Pracharak of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). The exhibition of activities undertaken by different organizations was the main attraction of the program.
Addressing the inaugural session Gurusharan Prasad, National Joint Secretary of Rashtriya Sewa Bharati highlighted the importance of programs like sewa sangam. Renu Pathak informed the delegates about the activities and programs of Rashtriya Sewa Bharati.

Sewa Bharati organizes training, awareness programs etc. for them to generate a sense of mutual cooperation amongst them.   A new dimension was given to these organizations by organizing such congregations at Champa in Chhattisgarh for NGOs working for welfare of leprosy patients and at Nagpur for those working among the differently able persons.
Speaking at the public function Dadwal said numerous NGOs are working in the field of service to poor, neglected and wretched lot of people and trying to bring them at par with the other sections through Sewa Bharti. They are working in the education, health, value education, self-reliance etc. to awaken the society to the needs of the neglected sections of the society. Service to the needy was ingrained in our religious and cultural teachings since the ages, he said adding that to work for the betterment of others was the eternal message of our culture.

The Christian missionaries and western organizations have converted sewa into a business and a means to convert and spread their religion. With the western lifestyle getting dominance in our social life, we find today the number of old-age homes, orphanages, etc. has registered an upward trend.  Sewa Bharati is committed to make the society aware to its social commitments, he said.
He expected that the NGOs participating in this sewa sangam would pay their attention to make the neglected lot of the society self-sufficient and self-reliant in every respect. Quoting from Swami Vivekananda who said the National ideal of Bharat is renunciation and service, Dadwal said that sewa Bharati is committed to take this mantra to the each and every NGO in India.
Referring to 17 such sewa sangams held in the country so far, Dadwal said that these NGOs have brought about a desired change in the fields of education, inculcating values and providing services to the needy. The way women and exploited masses have progressed through these activities in noteworthy, he said. There are innumerable activities going on in the society without the help and assistance from the government. The 44 plus organizations associated with Sewa Bharti are engaged in various sewa bastis, janjati villages, and other rural areas.
Former Jharkhand DGP Manoj Kumar Mishra addressing the gathering as chief guest lauded the work done by sewa bharati in the society through various such service oriented organizations. When the entire atmosphere is vitiated by cut-throat competition and unlimited hunger for wealth, sewa bharati’s endeavor is worth the praise, he said.
Mishra said that we have given up the moral values and life style which used to be our speacility resulting in breaking of our social fabric. Our education system has become a market. In such a disturbing situation the work of sewa bharati deserved all the praise, he said.
The Sewa Sangam was attended by representatives of Vikas Bharati, Sewa Bharati, NMO, Adishakti Mahila Samiti, Gumla, Gram Bharati, and many other organizations.
Swami Bhuteshanand, Patron of Bharat Sewashram Sangh, President Tilak Raj Mangalam, Secretary Vinod Gudhyan, Jharkhand Prant Prachark Mithilesh Narain, Kshetra Pracharak Swant Ranjan, Kshetra Sewa Pramukh Ajay Kumar, Prant Sewa Pramukh Triveni Sav, addressed the participating delegates on various aspects of the sewa activities.
