?Women?s role vital in nation-building

“GOOD DEEDS are rewarded by human birth and very good deeds by birth in India,” said Sadhvi Kankeshwari Devi. She was addressing a ‘Matrushakti Sammelan’ held on the topic of ‘present condition of Hindu dharma and major problems’ along with other guest speakers at the function organised by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to mark the Guru Golwalkar centenary celebrations at Chimanbagh ground on Sunday.

The Sadhvi, speaking on ‘samrasta ki avshyakta’, said that India is a beautiful country, which is looked with an evil eye by its neighbors. Organising such conclave of women is the totem for warding off this evil eye. Women have enjoyed high status in Indian society and it is now their responsibility to breed and train nationalist, brave, truthful and virtuous youth.

Their actions influence the characteristics of the child in the womb. Hindu women have been mentioned in the scriptures as giving birth to Gods, but in her contention Indian women with their love, affection, caring and understanding can make their mortal children into Gods.

She said some people in the garb of secularism try to impress their magnanimity and show even their enemies as friends. Confluence can only be between Ganga and Jamuna, meaning people of like nature and not between Ganga and some dirty nullah. It is an irony that those who speak on national unity do not even enjoy talking terms with their spouse, children and neighbors.

All India Rashtriya Sevika Samiti chief Pramila Tai Medhe speaking on ‘stri hi rashtra ki adhar shakti hai’, said women should know the direction of national life and those who are aware can take their children to the highest level in life.
Sadhvi Shiva Saraswati speaking on ‘Hindutva ka adhar’ said that women could perform tasks unachievable by men.

The cabinet of Gods is an ample proof as all important charges are in hands of goddesses like ‘arth’ lies with Laxmi, ‘shakti’ with Durga, ‘shiksha’ with Saraswati and so on. She stressed on adopting way of ‘dharma, karma and moksha’. “If the British end duplicity ends, Pakistan ends terrorism ends, Japan ends nationalism ends and if India ends humanity ends. India is the only country where ‘chitra ki nahin charitra ki puja hoti hai,’’ she said.

Laxmi Kanta Chawla, who played a significant role during operation Blue Star, speaking on ‘terrorism and infiltration’ said that terrorism is rampant in places where ‘rashtra dharma’ has been forgotten. Similarly a country that forgets sacrifice of martyrs and government that advocates for traitors cannot expect to end terrorism.

She said that if a child is killed in womb who would give birth to national heroes and would a Pakistani woman be expected to give birth to the likes of Shivaji.

All-India Vidya Bharti Joint secretary Indutai Katdare spoke on ‘Shiksha and parivarik vighthan’, a Member of Parliament from Rajasthan Jasbir Kaur Meena spoke on ‘sanskritik akraman’, Malti Vasant spoke on ‘nari ki dasha’ and Bharatiya Majdur Sangh leader Asha Tai Mandlik on ‘Guru Golwalkar’.

The keynotes of ‘Hindu- jagao, bachao, badhao and sambhalo’ figured as issues of concern and discussion in the conclave. The year would be celebrated as ‘roti-beti bachao andolan’. MLA Usha Thakur gave the introductory speech at the beginning of the conclave, which was organised and attended to solely by the women cadres of the RSS and open only to a female audience.
