Jaipur: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Tuesday said that the entire world is looking up to adopt the existing basic element of Indian ways of life for its growth and sustenance amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The entire world is returning to the basic elements of Indian thought process to practice developmental ways while being environment friendly after being battered by coronavirus during the last six months,” said Bhagwat at an event in Kota.
He was addressing a function on the 100th birth anniversary of Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh leader Dattopant Thengadi.
“We have to adopt ideal agricultural practices based on experience and proven evidence. India has ten thousand years of agricultural experience, so it is not necessary to take anti-environment practices from the West,” he said.
“Agriculture is not just to feed people and do business, agriculture is dharma for us. In our ancient texts, it is linked to goddess Lakshmi. There are many descriptions, which link prosperity to agriculture. It is linked to our culture and sanskar, it is not just an avenue for employment. In the West, it is linked to the economy, they say the agricultural economy. I am not saying this is wrong but it is a fact that they have exploited resources, ecology, but we have to establish agriculture as a way of life, then only agriculture will prosper,” RSS Chief added.
