Nagpur, May 1: The 25-day long Third Year Summer Training Camp organised by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh began at Reshimbag here, senior RSS functionary Dattatreya Hosabale said today.
The annual camp known as 'Sangh Shiksha Varg' commenced here at Reshimbag yesterday. It provides an opportunity to the participants to "know, understand and experience Bharat", Hosabale said.
Over 800 young swayamsevaks drawn from all the states are participating in this training camp.
"This summer training camp presents a 'mini Bharat' in itself as swayamsevaks drawn from various provinces, speaking different tongues, having varied food and clothing habits and coming from different climates stay together for 25 days.
Thus, providing a chance to interact, learn and understand the real 'Bharat'," he said. The functionary said RSS was not just known for its uniform or prayers but for its comprehensive, all-encompassing attitude towards the diversity in Bharat and its attempt to understand and experience the unity in that diversity.
The RSS literature is available in each language spoken in Bharat.
The system of Sangh Shiksha Varg is same all over the country yet it includes the distinguishing features of those different provinces, he said.
Hosabale said the training imparted to swayamsevaks at the camp empowers them to experience Bharat with all its diverse peculiarities and distinctions, a press release from Vishwa Samwad Kendra of RSS issued here said. The camp will conclude on June 9 with the address by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.
