Kochi April 7, 2013: In a much awaited moment which inspired thousands of Malayalee Sangh well wishers of Kerala and abroad, RSS Sarasanghachalak Mohan Bhagwat inaugurated Bhaskara Rao Bhavan at Kochi on Sunday morning. The new building was newly named ‘BHASKAREEYAM’ , the Bhaskara Rao Memorial Mandir, after first RSS pranth pracharak of Kerala Sri Bhaskara Rao.
“Hinduism doesn’t accept conversions. Hindus try to reverse conversions, Conversions are not necessary. If you have the basic human values, what you wear, what you eat and what you pray all these are immaterial,” said Mohan Bhagwat, adding, ‘Hindu society needs to spread this message world over’.
All round progress of Hindu society is not for its own sake, but for the betterment of the whole world, he noted.
Former ISRO Chairman, Dr G Madhavan Nair was the Chief Guest on the occasion, said changes in the education sector was needed as it had become highly commercialised. Those coming out of colleges are not employable, which needs to be changed, he said, adding, there is need for imparting value-based education. Nair also stressed the need for promoting entrepreneurship rather than going for jobs in government or multi-national companies.
