Meerut: Freedom is not just getting rid of the rule of the aliens and forcing them to move out of our country, but real freedom means to be free from every harmful thing that can take us under any kind of slavery. Rising crime cases, violence, rapes, fights, terrorism, death due to drug abuse etc. directly defines the level of the slavery of our countrymen, where though we are free at the physical level but cluttered at the mental and soul level.
Realizing the same, BODH - the Drug Abuse Eradication Program of DJJS, tried to inform and educate people of Meerut in a very interactive and inspiring manner by organizing an event named Mukti - a step towards complete freedom. This program was celebrated at Shri Ram Saraswati Shishu Mandir School, Delhi Rd., Meerut on 25th January 2015.
More than 400 people including 100 males, 250 females and 50 children were benefitted from this event. The mass included teachers, students, men, women from all sections of the socuety in large number. As the chief guest of the event, Mr. R.K Singh who is Sale tax Commissioner of Meerut was also present.
The program recollected the memories of freedom fighters and their martyrdom, and raised a very important question – How these freedom fighters turned themselves into revolutionaries and managed to overcome all materialistic desires of life for the sake of freedom? The program answered this and many other questions by emphasizing on the teachings of his holiness Shri Ashutosh Ji Maharaj, that complete independence can be achieved only after being awakened at the level of the soul. Testimonies and life stories of martyrs like Aurbindo Ghosh, Swami Vivekananda and Bhagat Singh were taken and discussed in order to motivate the masses. And the extract of program was clearly received by public, that only complete independence can bring freedom from drugs.
At last but not least, people of Meerut pledged to make themselves and their society free from all forms of drugs and they signed their testimonials on the white board with words – ‘Bhartiya Sanskriti Apnao, jeevan ko rogo se bachao’.
City Hulchal, a renowned news channel has also covered the program and broadcasted the news at the prime time in Uttar Pradesh.
