The Marathi Edition of Chief Minister Shri Narendrabhai Modi's book “Jyotipunj” was released today, addressing the book release ceremony Shri Narendrabhai Modi said, “The deep rooted feeling of India-First is the true and real definition of secularism in our country.”

Shri Ravindra Dani has done Marathi translation of Jyotipunj, which narrates Narendrabhai's enlightening experience and the insights with as many as 16 communicators- Pracharaks- of Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh-R.S.S-; Ameya Publication-Pune is publishing it.

The Chief Minister expressed his gratitude to get an opportunity to witness the greatness of the Pracharaks, whose life had remained steadfastly dedicated to Bharat-Mata. After independence, a crisis of mental untouchability was created in our country. The mental untouchability prompted to tarnish the image of great leaders, who were truly dedicated to the motherland. Systematic efforts were made to wipe out the glorious contributions and the historic legacy, it has really has done great damage to our nation. He made an appeal to seek inspiration from the ideals and lives of such great leaders of our nation. The society which does not nurture the roots of its great legacy, can never create history, added the C.M.

Earlier, Chief Minister had suggested proactive economic steps to the Prime Minister for tackling global economic meltdown. He added, “The entire world is worried and riddled with recessionary trends. Gujarat has taken up the challenge of meltdown. Gujarat has shown the path to the world .If a progressive state like Gujarat can achieve landmark breakthroughs, the nation can even have a better slice from the giant pie. We have to save the nation from terrorism and drug mafias, for that we need to act with better coordination and cooperation. We also have to restrict the flow of Dirty Money.”

Chief Minister stated that Gujarat has tremendous potential and can do unbelievable things, can also achieve the toughest task. He had visited his hometown after a span of 45 years; at that time he met his friends. And he had honoured teachers.

R.S.S worker and president of the ceremony, Dr Smt Shastri said, “ The Marathi Edition of Jyotipunj would enrich Marathi literature in a true sense. It would motivate workers of the R.S.S. to tread the ideal path.”
