Bhagwat also mentioned the path of welfare shown to the whole world through Dr. Hedgewar and other thinkers. He told the need for the Sindhi community to live in the Sanatani tradition and create its own identity by maintaining its customs. Such elements have to be thwarted , which incite people to quarrels. There is a need to highlight the virtues in different areas of life. Referring to the accident that took place in Indore yesterday, Bhagwat said that he got this news at the time of Gangaji’s darshan and only then he bowed down to Gangaji and also paid tribute to the deceased.
