Prestige linked to what one gives back to society: Mohan Bhagwat

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Friday said a person’s prestige is directly associated with what he returns to the society after gaining from it.

Speaking at an event organised as part of silver jubilee celebrations of GMR Varalakshmi Foundation here, Bhagwat said: “Nowadays, people think that if they earn more money, they will become famous.”

“But they won’t become famous unless they return part of it to the society,” he said.

Praising GMR chief G.M. Rao for carrying out corporate social responsibility for 25 years with full dedication, Bhagwat said: “I have seen that despite being busy, you also look after the CSR activities with sensitiveness.”

He emphasised that “responsibility is sensitiveness”.

Citing an example of sensitiveness and emotional attachment, the RSS chief said that during the Kargil War days, the railway employees of Nagpur had collected money for the army personnel.

“The day when the amount was to be given, a beggar came to the railway employees and offered them his last three days’ collection for the army personnel. This was emotional attachment,” he stated.

He also said that if a person had emotions, then responsibility would come automatically.
