Description
About the Book

Time and history have proved that among the modern India's organisers of men and movements, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's Second Sarsanghchaalak Shri Guruji Golwalkar occupies a place in the topmost few. For more than three decades till his death, he, with no respite and rest, covered the entire length and breadth of this vast country on wheels, wings or legs with no unfortunate occasion to cancel any scheduled programme. Never in his life did he reach a programme late. With a diligent team as unfailing as himself, he built up the largest organisation of our times, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, with a very wide network. With an absolutely self-reliant structure and a unique working system evolved out of native genius, this organisation today is nothing short of a phenomenon; comparable only to itself.

Any inquisitive mind, candid and unprejudiced, would like very much to delve deep into the lives of men who built up such a movement. In case of Shri Guruji, the attention is bound to be more compelling due to the fact that here was person maligned and cursed all through by the powers that be; but who, despite them, unflinchingly and relentlessly, paced towards his cherished goal. Golwalkar was truly 'Goal Walker', come what may.

This is a comprehensive, well referenced biography of spiritual and social stalwart Shri Guruji that will inspire and motivate millions.

About the Author

Shri Ranga Hariji is a senior Prachaarak and highly respected thinker of RSS. He was in jail in Kerala from December 1948 to April 1949 in Central Jail as a satyagrahi demanding lifting of the ban on RSS. He became a Prachaarak in 1951 after finishing his graduation in Kochi. Hariji was the Prant Prachaarak of Kerala from 1983 to 1994; Akhil Bharatiya Saha-bauddhik Pramukh in 1990 and Akhil Bharatiya Bauddhik Pramukh from 1991 to 2005. He was a guide and consultant to Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh in Asia and Australia from 1994 to 2005. He has travelled 22 countries across 5 continents. He participated in the World Conference of Pre-Christian Religions and Tradition in Lithuania 2001 and later in India in 2005 and 2006. He was a member of Akhil Bharatiya Karyakaari Mandal of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh till 2006. Now, 87 year old Hariji has retired from day-to-day work and devotes his time to writing and giving lectures when health allows.

Hariji has excellent knowledge of Malayalam, Sanskrit, Hindi, Konkani, Marathi, Tamil and English. He is a prolific writer and has written 20 books in Malayalam, 8 in Hindi and one in Konkani.He has also compiled three books in Malayalam and one huge collection of Shri Guruji's works—' Shri Guruji Samagra' in Hindi in 12 Volumes. He has translated one book from English, six books from Marathi, two from Sanskrit and one from Hindi to Malayalam. He has written the biography of Shri Guruji in Hindi. We are presenting here the English translation of this highly acclaimed biography.

Preface

Time and history have proved that among the modern India's organisers of men and movements, Shri Guruji Golwalkar occupies a place in the topmost few. For more than three decades till his death, he, with no respite and rest, covered the entire length and breadth of this vast country on wheels, wings or legs with no unfortunate occasion to cancel any scheduled programme. Never in his life did he reach a programme late. With a diligent team as unfailing as himself, he built up the largest organisation of our times, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, with a very wide network. With an absolutely self-reliant structure and a unique working system evolved out of native genius, this organisation today is nothing short of a phenomenon; comparable only to itself. Any inquisitive mind, candid and unprejudiced, would like very much to delve deep into the lives of men who built up such a movement. In case of Shri Guruji, the attention is bound to be more compelling due to the fact that here was person maligned and cursed all through by the powers that be; but who, despite them, unflinchingly and relentlessly, paced towards his cherished goal. Golwalkar was truly 'Goal Walker', come what may.

It is more to satisfy such aforesaid minds that I had penned a rather comprehensive biography of Shri Guruji soon after his birth centenary. Now that my colleague and comrade-in-arms Ratan Sharda has come forward to render the Hindi original into English, I feel truly happy, naturally at the personal level; but much more so, because Ratanji has opened the doors wider to facilitate its reach to a larger section. Hence, my purpose of presenting Shri Guruji to the public would be served even better. So more than happy, I feel gratified. —Ranga Hari
