NAGPUR: Stressing that the culture is the great uniting force in India that has given unique identity to this nation, RSS Sarsanghachalak (Chief) Mohan Bhagwat on Thursday emphasized that even though the ways to attain a same goal might be different, the people will have to accept others to walk their way and attain the goal.

"We will have to be aware that even the diversity has arisen out of the common ethos of this land," Bhagwat said.

"While the governments can do many things the fate of a nation can only be changes by motivated common men who put the nation first before anything else in their lives," Bhagwat said and added that the RSS is an effort to instill that spirit in the common man.

"In RSS view, we are all one. Our DNA is the same and hence we should rise above the petty differences. A united society can only bring a change and hence the RSS had been trying to unite the society," Bhagwat added.

"To change the habits of society an environment is needed. That environment is provided by the leaders within the society, who walk the ideals. All through its life the RSS has been engaged in carving out such men who have been walking the ideals and have been working as the guiding posts within their own area of influence," Bhagwat said.

"RSS strives to unite all the positive forces and hence is not averse to anyone," Bhagwat said.

Bhagwat also dubbed those who want to isolate it by shunning any kind of contact. "Honest people are open to dialogue as the honesty and acceptance leads to common ground," he said.

Bhagwat also appealed people to join the RSS. "We are not scared of being tested. But, my only appeal would be that don't form opinions from outside.Come to us, be a part of us and thereby you can understand the way to develop a strong nation that we have developed through so many years," Bhagwat said and added that the whole of society is free to test the way.
