Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji shared that India is not only great due to its big buildings, its Taj Mahal or Red Fort. Rather, the real reason India is great is due to the deep thinking and high living of the people of India, who have dedicated their entire lives to the service of the nation. He emphasised that from Mananiya Dr. Hedgewarji to Guruji to Mananiya Dr. Mohan Bhagwatji the RSS leaders are models of living simply, living with less and giving every minute, moment and breath of their lives to serving others. He praised how they have passed that dedication onto all the members and sanghachalaks of RSS.
