Meeting of the National Governing Board: February, 2010

National Governing Board of the Bharat Vikas Parishad held its annual meeting at Gwalior on the 20th and 21st February, 2010. It was attended by 184 members.

The meeting was presided over by Shri R.P. Sharma, National President who made the introductory remarks and also delivered the Presidential Address on the concluding session of the meeting. He declared that in the next year, Parishad will endeavour to significantly increase the participation of women and youth in the organisation. To this end, lot more programmes will be taken for their involvement.

   

Swami Madhav Prapannacharya graced the occasion as the Chief Guest. He was main speaker in the inauguration session. In a very inspiring discourse, he defined the true meaning of Parishad's core values of Sampark, Sahayog, Sanskar, Sewa, and Samparpan and explained how these are remarkably interwoven. He emphasised the need to involve youth in Parishad’s work and in this context also suggested the need to institute a Yuva Award. He said that the fact that the Parishad had invited him - a young sanyasi whose age may be less than half of many of the delegates - showed the direction in which BVP wished to go.

In the concluding session there was a thought provoking address by Shri Bhageyaji, all-India Bodik Pramuk of RSS. He felt that the aim of Parishad is all round development of body, mind and intellect of each citizen of the country. For this we all have to work together. If bad guys are united to play havoc in the society, the good people also need to get united. Sampark leads to disciple in the society as we look for divinity in each person. From here we move to help i.e. Sahayog, but the help we provide should not be one time help but a continuous one.

Shri Bhageyaji said that he was glad that the Parishad was engaged in bringing together enlightened elite of the society in service of the nation. He said that for smooth functioning of the organisation from Branch to Centre, one must first get ‘selected ’ before he is ‘elected’. There were 1.18 lakhs registered societies in the country. However, very few of them were functioning in an organised and systematic manner.

Following were the highlights of the other items taken up in the meeting:

  • The minutes of the last meeting of the NGB held on 14-15th February, 2009 at Hyderabad were presented and confirmed.
     

  • Five new Vikas Ratna present was facilitated.

  • Prantiya General Secretaries presented reports on their activities during the year 2009-10.

Saluting a Martyr


Major Rishikesh Ramani
, aged 27 years, of 23 Punjab Regiment died in a fierce gun battle near the LoC in Kupwara district of North Kashmir on 7th June, 2009. The gun battle took place when the militants were attempting to sneak into the valley from across the border. Rishikesh fell to the bullets of militants as he engaged 10 of them in face-to-face combat. He shot dead three militants before he was gunned down. He valiantly fought the terrorist, and would have even won the battle had death not cast its shadow over him. He was among the few Gujaratis to have chosen a career in defence. He retuned home a martyr.

Shaheed Rishikesh was son of Shri Vallabhbhai M. Ramani who is our Zonal Secretary of Zone XIII. Born in Ahmedabad, Rishikesh (fondly known as Tushar) dreamt of being in defence ever since he was a child. He studied at the Sainik School in Balachhadi in Jamnagar where he was school captain for a couple of years. Extremely bright, he was very popular among his friends and relatives. He scored 85 per cent in class XII. He was also very good at sports and often played volleyball during free time. He could have opted to become a doctor, engineer or even an IAS officer, but he chose defence. He got admitted into the National Defence Academy in Pune, and later took up training at the Indian Military Academy in Deharadun. He as a ranker in whatever he took up. He had recently completed a course in commando training and was among the top rankers.

The last time Ramani visited home was in March this year. He was also to get engaged soon and was expected to get married in December. It is going do be very difficult for the family to overcome the loss.

When the funeral procession started from his house, thousands of people standing on either side of the narrow by-lanes that lead to his home, formed human chains and shouted slogans like “Rishikesh amar rahain’.

Rishikesh laid down his life to protect the country. Bharat Vikas Parishad offers its condolences and pays tributes to the young hero for his supreme sacrifice in service of the Motherland.
