Contending that “failed experiments” of two thousand years have left the world disillusioned, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said India can set an example to the world by creating a peaceful society “which takes everyone along”.

The chief of the right wing outfit that espouses the cause of Hindutva said the RSS will expand and be more organised to work towards creating such an India.

“Considering as our own the whole world, which is disillusioned at the failure of experiments of two thousand years, giving it a new symbol, new peaceful, brotherly society and which takes everyone along… creator of a such a world, Bharat… such a society we have to create.

“So we have to expand our work in scope and make it more organised,” Bhagwat said at a convention organised by a Sangh body ‘Rashtriya Sewa Bharati’.

Addressing the gathering which included representatives of nearly 800 organisations involved in social work, Bhagwat said that all needy should be served “without any distinction, motives or selfish reasons”.

“Whether somebody is a Sangh Swayamsewak or not, Hindu or not, this has nothing to do with service. This we, in the Sangh, believe. We believe that anyone who is needy needs service ….There is no differentiation in serving. There is also no desire of getting something in return,” he said.

“If we serve like that, the number of our ‘shakhas’ would increase, but that should not be the motive behind service,” he said.

He said the RSS had created a separate body, the Rashtriya Sewa Bharati, so that it could support work of social welfare.

He, however, added that service should be done as a duty and not for fame or any other lure.

Top business leaders Azim Premji of the Wipro group, G M Rao of GMR group and Subhash Chandra, chairman of the Zee Group, were also present at the event.

In his speech, Premji said that he was attending the event on the invitation of Bhagwat over which some people had expressed apprehension that it would appear as endorsing the ideology of the Sangh.

He said that he did not follow that advice as he is not a political person and felt that by merely speaking one cannot be seen as endorsing an ideology in totality.

Premji also emphasised on the need for having a discussion if there are different views.

He lauded the work done by many social sector organisations and emphasised on the need for quality education especially at the primary and secondary level where, adding the government should play a key role.
