RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Monday that the world runs on a philosophy of endless consumerism which ensures the survival of the fittest but it is up to India to challenge this idea by setting a vision of comprehensive progress.
“India has to progress by its own vision. We have to develop the soul and compassion. The world runs on a certain principle where ends are endless and means are limited. So, there is a struggle and there is the idea of survival of the fittest. The purpose of life is to consume…But there is no future to this dynamics and it is up to India to change this,” Bhagwat said while addressing a gathering at an event organised by Bharat Vikas Parishad to celebrate the birth centenary of Dr Suraj Prakash, the founder of the RSS-affiliate.
Bhagwat said India was going to change this principle not by conquering the world after becoming a superpower but by setting an example for others to follow.
