News Round-up @ November 2014

Dear Sisters and Brothers!

It was veritably a great opportunity for me to listen directly to the Hon’ble Prime Minister of our country at New Delhi in the National Level Launching of Mananeeya Eknathji Janma Shati Parva. The everlasting experience gives a great conviction for the need of ‘Man Making”. The fact that a poor lad who sold tea in the streets has become the most respected Prime Minister of our country and one of the popular faces in the world also surges an inspiring spark in all of us.

The members of the great organization which he associated during boyhood and early youth period played an important role to groom him by helping him to internalize the values in life which propelled him to work diligently for the Nation.

It was a great pleasure to know the contribution of Swargeeya Eknathji to groom him. It was a great cogitating session wherein he expressed conscious effort of Eknathji which has made a great change in him. He said “He had the habit of taking a nap after lunch everyday. Eknathji noticed this habit of him and one day he asked him to accompany him for a walk immediately after lunch. Eknathji did not mention anything of that but he took him for a walk in the preceding days also. After some days, he could get rid of that habit altogether”.  Shri Narendra Modi became eloquent to recount many more such incidents.

That experience sharing of Shri Narendra Modiji made me to remember the strength giving poem which I learnt in my schooling.

    I shot an arrow into the air,

                It fell to earth, I knew not where;

                            I breathed a song into the air,

                                         ------------------------------------

                                                    And the song, from beginning to end,

                                                                I found again in the heart of a friend.

                                                                            -------HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW

(I am sure many of you know the poem)

Truly, good words and actions would remain in the hearts of others. In the same way, Swargeeya Eknathji lives in the heart of millions of people as a perennial source of inspiration.

Sisters and brothers there are many things to share at this moment:-

Joint Secretary

 

Like a commander, decide the mission to be fulfilled and then plan the strategy, taking into consideration of the power, the potentialities and the limitations.  Think of the best manner in which the goal is to be achieved.  ‘Ifs’ and ‘Buts’ have no place in this.  After a stern determination, not only the goal and the mission are fixed, but a master-plan will have to be prepared and all the strategy necessary to accomplish it must be settled.  Then and then alone something noble can be achieved.
