Bharat Vikas Parishad creating right ambience for society
The Sentinel
; July 16, 2012
Silchar : Bharat Vikas Parishad since its inception in 1963 has been creating the right ambience for society with its accent on five cardinal principles of sampark, sahayog, sanskar, seva and samarpan. I B Ubadia, president of the Cachar unit of the Parishad, speaking about the background of the organization said that it has till now more than 900 branches across the country and around 20 abroad. It came into being, on the birth day of Swami Vivekananda and also in the aftermath of Chinese aggression which prompted socially oriented persons of the time, Hans Raj Gupta and Suraj Prasad to think of it.

Ubadia quoted the great Hindi poet, Tulsidas, who wrote of service to the poor and underprivileged as the greatest religion of man, to say that the Parishad has been working for the larger interests of the people who are helpless and discriminated as well as neglected in society. The occasion was the celebration of 10th foundation day of Bharat Vikash Parishad in the premises of a hotel here last night. The organization imbued with the ideals and teachings of Vivekananda and with the support of its youth front has been working in many areas with the sole objective of uplift and betterment of society, he pointed in his welcome speech.

Nilotpal Sengupta, project chairman, described BVP as ‘totally non political and non sectarian’ committed to bring about ‘social renaissance’and eliminate social evils to herald a prosperous and glorious future. It is a council of elites and enlightened, as he said, that inspires others to work with a sense of confidence and responsibility. ‘It is a unique organization with positive approach to create awareness about our rich heritage and culture’, he stated. Elaborating on the works of the Parishad during the last few months, Sengupta said it took up manifold programmes to observe ‘world environment day’, tree-plantation, distribution of clothes among tribal students, besides carrying on other humanitarian missions, as well as the welfare of cattle involving the veterinary department of the State government.

Quite significantly, the Parishad has included in its mission the development of Ekal Vidyalayas of the region. Marvari Yuva Manch has been actively involved in promoting the cause of the organization. The Social Work department of Assam University has also come forward to assist and help the Parishad to spread its ideology and message.

Gopalji Misra, Dean of Social Work department, who was the chief- guest, speaking on the philosophy said one has to look inside oneself to ask if he is worthy to live in society before talking of others. He should project himself as a role model to establish the dictum,‘ do what you believe in order to inspire others for good and noble works’. In order to set a definite goal before itself, he advised for priority of agenda and to make sincere and dedicated efforts for assuring people’s participation. He at the same time favoured pulling up of resources and to get its achievements evaluated by the funding agencies to keep the wheel of works moving. After all, as he said, credibility of any organization makes it grow stronger and remain firm in its onward march and the target groups the downtrodden, the lonely and forgotten, will be greatest beneficiaries.
