Workshop for Branch Office Bearers
Karnataka South
: Workshop for Branch Office Bearers of Prant hosted by Bharadwaj Shakha, Mysore was held on 20th May 2012. The session was inaugurated by Shri N.

The main thrust of his speech was how the British tried to break India by imposing their own language, culture and creating myths of Aryan aggression etc. which was later exploded by the BBC itself through its website which established beyond doubt that the Hindu Samaskriti had prospered materialistically as well as spiritually right from the Mohenjo Daro or even earlier times notwithstanding the periodic alien aggressions.

This was followed by brain storming interactive sessions by Shri N. Daulath Rao, (Constitution and Rules of BVP) Dr. Ashok Kumar (Membership andolan) Shri Nagaraju (organisation and vistar), Dr. B.D. Patel (AV presentation on Sanskar), Shri H.G. Jagadish, on Sampark and Sahayog, Dr. Balasubramanya (Prez. Vivekananda Yuva Morcha) on seva programmes, their objectives and execution and Shri K.S. Sridhar Murthy on accounts and audit.

Revanna gave details of the special tasks ahead of us in the silver jubilee year of our Prant, Golden Jubilee year of BVP, and the 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda in 2012-13.
