Today I begin my day by paying homage to a swayamsevak of the first #RSS shakha of Dr #Hedgewar - Shri #MoropantPingley. One of earliest prachaaraks, always smiling & humorous. Man behind hugely successful #EkatmataYatra, that was precursor to #RamMandir movement 1/3
Used to say #Sangh work is a serious work that we should day with a smile. His meetings used to be full of laughter. Key brain trust behind #RamMandir. Always kept himself in background. Inspired innumerable Sewa projects across Bharat. 2/3
I realised how rooted prachaaraks of #RSS when he told karyartas before Ekatmata Yatra, yatra will be hugely successful. It is upto you to be part of it or not. & to wonder of doubtful people it turned biggest mass program. 8 cr participants! Humble homage to #MoropantPingley🙏🙏
