Justice Hans Raj Khanna

Bharat Vikas Parishad’s Patron Justice Hans Raj Khanna  left for his heavenly abode on 25th  February, 2008 at the age of 95.

Justice Khanna had a long association with Bharat Vikas Parishad.    He was Parishad’s National President for 15 years from April, 1985 to March, 2000. From April, 2000 he guided the Parishad as its  Patron.

Justice Khanna served as the judge of the Supreme Court from 1971 to 1977 known for his courage and independence in decisions.  At the height of the Emergency, the darkest hour of Indian democracy,  at the cost of his own career he stood like a rock for citizens’ rights. He became a beacon and a symbol of selfless courage and lion-hearted resolve to stand up  for dharma, the rule of law, without regard to personal consequence. On being superseded for appointment as Chief Justice of India, he resigned from the judicial service.  The New York Times observed in an editorial dated April 30, 1976,  "If India ever finds its way back to freedom and democracy, that proud hallmark of its first 18 years, someone will surely erect a monument to Justice H.R. Khanna of the Supreme Court."

An eminent jurist and a constitutional expert, he authored two books, Making of India's Constitution  and Neither Roses nor Thorns  (autobiography). He was conferred Padma Vibhushan in 1999.

In his sad demise Bharat Vikas Parishad has lost a philosopher and guide. He is survived by three sons and a daughter. We pray to almighty to grant eternal peace to the departed soul and enough strength to the bereaved family to bear this irreparable loss.

25th All India National Conference
 


The 25th (Silver Jubilee) All India National Conference of Bharat Vikas Parishad was held at Gwalior (M.P.) on 29th and
30th December, 2007.  The biannual Conference was attended by over 2,000 delegates from 47 Prants (out of total 54 Prants).
The deliberations were conducted in various sessions spread over two days. It is noteworthy that the Conference commenced
its proceedings exactly at 10.00 .A. M. on the 29th December, 2007 as scheduled.
 

Shri Shivraj Singh Chauhan, Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh addressing the delegates
 

Shri Shivraj Singh Chauhan, Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh was the Chief Guest at the Conference.  While inaugurating
the Conference, he lauded the multi-faceted work of Bharat Vikas Parishad for over all development of the Nation. He said his
Government in Madhya Pradesh had the same agenda for welfare of the people as that of the Parishad. He felt that if the
 Government and the society joined hands for welfare of the people, it would be excellent. In this connection, he announced
 an initial contribution of Rs. 5 lakhs for establishing Parishad’s Viklang Rehabilitation Centre at Gwalior.

 

Swami Chidanand Saraswati Ji Maharaj of Parmarth Niketanm, Rishikesh blessed the delegates and wished speedy
expansion of Parishad’s noble work for spread of Indian cultural values. 
He stated that “Vikas” of Bharat is possible only
through “Arpan”, “Tarpan” and “Samarpan”.  For this we need to take small steps towards inculcating “sankars” including
respect for our environment.

 He exhorted each of 40,000 members of the Parishad to enroll at least one member each every year so that the Parishad's
Vision 2013 could be achieved in its Golden Jubilee year.
 

Shri Mohan Bhagwat, General Secretary of the RSS was the Chief Speaker on the first day of the Conference.  In his address
he emphasized that for development of our Nation, there has to be an all round development of each of its citizens - of their body,
mind and intellect. He believed that for the progress of our country we have to develop the spirit of “we” instead of “I’. In this
 context, he said no individual is bigger than an organisation and no organisation is bigger than the mission.   He was glad that the
Parishad was doing excellent work on these lines for all round progress of the nation.
 

A view of the audience

Shri I.D. Ojha, National Secretary General presented his report on various activities and programmes organised during
the years 2006-08. Shri R.P. Sharma, National Working President also addressed the delegates.
In the subsequent sessions, Zonal Secretaries / Prant General Secretaries as well as National Secretaries of various Projects
presented their reports and awards for exceptional work done by Zones, Prants or Branches in their fields. These presentations
continued on the second day of the Conference. There was also a session for “Mukt Chintan” wherein members sought
clarifications and made suggestions.  Shri R.P. Sharma, National Working President replied to the questions and said
that valuable suggestions offered would be duly considered.

On Saturday evening there was  a captivating cultural programme. Performances by children on freedom movement,
especially Rani Ki Jhansi, left all delegates inspired and mesmerised.

 



Vanvasi Bandu performing at the cultural evening
 

The Conference concluded with the thought provoking address of Dr. Swami Shashwatanand Ji Maharaj of Kurukshetra.
He said that Parishad is an organisation of the enlightened elite and the need of the hour is to develop a society of the enlightened.
 Our vikas (development) should be positive and not negative.   Drawing analogy from The Bhagwat Geeta, Swami ji said that we
have to develop the “Parikrisht” intellect of Lord Krishna and work for service of others and not that of Duryodhan who cared only
for his own self interests. He emphasized that Bharat was vishav guru, still is and will always remain so. We have only to strengthen
our will power and work for service of the disadvantaged.
 
Mementos were also presented to the Vikas Ratanas for their contribution to the permanent "corpus fund" of the Parishad.

The successful conclusion of the Conference reflected the combined efforts of Madhya Bharat East Prant which was appreciated by all.
