Tarun Vijay addressing Rotarians at the Taj, Mumbai

Indian global vision- Pride in Hindu heritage, compassion for humanity and strength to punish the wicked.

Director, Dr. Syama Prasad Mookerjee Research Foundation Shri Tarun Vijay was invited as the chief guest by Rotary Club of Bombay(the oldest and highly reputed club of Mumbai) to speak to its members on India's Global Vision at the Taj, Mumbai on 3rd November 2009. It was a full house with a number of luminaries and top industrialists present to listen to him. Tarun Vijay spoke about the glorious Hindu heritage that has its footprints all over the globe from China to Cambodia and from Brazil to Korea. He presented the Indian vision in terms of scholarship, and character and opined that the protecting Indian values of family, pluralism, safeguarding nature and following the legacy of Ram, Guru Govind Singh and Shivaji to annihilate the unrepentant wicked is the Dharma of every Indian in the present circumstances when we are facing a bloody Jihad and the 'harvesting'of the proselytizers. He gave examples of Indian seers going in various far off regions of the world and establishing their mark on the basis of their compassion, wisdom and scholarship like Kumarjiva, who became China's 'Rajguru', and the rishis who established Kamboj desh(Cambodia) and helped build Ang Kor Wat. He also gave vivid description of Hindu culture's influence in Thailand, where the King is known as Rama the ninth and their international airport is named Suvarnabhumi with a marvelous sculpture of Saagar Manthan(churning of the ocean) inside it.Go global, earn great heights in achievements,but never forget to fulfill your duty towards your motherland and Dharma. Strengthening Hindu civilizational values is necessary to protect pluralism, diversity and democracy. He quoted Prof. Rajendra Singh, the fourth Sarsanghchalak of the RSS as saying that India's progress and influence on the world must be measured by its Vidya and Character. He said that the present Sarsanghchalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat is the youngest chief of the global Hindu consolidation who has put the principles of Sewa ie service to humanity and nature conservation before the Swayamsewaks while remaining firm on the need to rekindle interest in Hindu civilisation.

Shri Tarun Vijay said that the barbaric savages attacking us, like they did here, at Taj, where we are sitting today, on 26/11 two years before have to be finally annihilated if we are the true inheritors of Ram and Krishna who never pardoned the wicked. He exhorted young Rotarians to be true to their heritage and strengthen the spirit of patriotism with Vande Mataram on their lips, that devotion to motherland alone can save the nation and defeat the anti-national elements. Indian global vision can only be defined in terms of freedom to choose , appreciation for a different view point, helping world find solution to issues like global warming and climate change in a nuclear free atmosphere, where no nation can dictate terms to the other on the basis of brute force are parts of the Indian global vision.
The speech was followed by a brief Q&A session.
