In his Vijayadashmi speech, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Sarsanghchalak Dr Mohan Bhagwat said that there is new hope in the country as India is poised to become the leader of the world.
Addressing a mammoth ‘Vijaydashami Utsav’ gathering, Bhagwat said, “Two years ago, there was an atmosphere of disappointment, now there is a feeling of hope.”
“The primary thing to think about is how to make India a leading nation in the world. A new idea of India is rising in the world. Whenever there is a crisis situation in the world, we come forth to help,” he said, adding that we should take in whatever is good from all over the world for our nation.
Bhagwat said that the world is now expecting that the ‘new India’ will show the way, especially the developing world thinks India as the leader of the group and for the ‘new India’ the first thing required is that we get out of mental slavery.
“Raavan was a great king, Ram sent Laxman to him to learn how to rule a kingdom. And yet today, we talk about how Ram ruled…Today we want Ram Rajya not Ravan Rajya in India,” he said.
The RSS chief stressed that the aim should be not just be material growth but spiritual growth.
