Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said the biggest religion is to serve the needy, at the launch of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s Sewa Prabhag website Sewagatha on Sunday, which highlights the “good work” done by people.

“The biggest religion is to serve the needy. Good works of assisting people should be highlighted. Information about it will encourage people. This will strengthen their good values and pave way for positive environment in the society,” Chouhan said.

The CM also praised RSS’ vision of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ (the whole world is one family).

“Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh is a nationalist organisation with a huge heart. This organisation creates citizens who live for the society. Swayamsevaks dedicate themselves totally towards service to enlighten the society,” he said.

Applauding the services of organisations such as Matruchhaya and Anand Dham, which are serving children and old-age people here, the chief minister said feelings of self-reliance and harmony among the inhabitants there results in spiritual joy.

Such works should be widely publicised as it eliminates disappointment, Chouhan said.

He said he hoped that the website will energise and inspire people to do good work.

RSS general secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi said the culture of service is instilled in Indian lifestyle.

Here, service to human is equal to service of God, he said.

He said needy must be served with a feeling of brotherhood after understanding their anguish and weakness. “Service done with such feelings always bear good results.”

Joshi said there several people who are victims of faulty social beliefs, unstable lifestyles, who live in far-flung areas, and who are deprived of their basic social rights.

Sewagatha website editor Vijay Lakshmi described the objectives and nature of the website and collection of ‘gathas’ (stories).

Website creator Swapnil Parkhiya while highlighting the technical aspects of the website also informed that apart from being mobile-friendly, it can be shared on Facebook and Twitter.
