PARAVUR: Nationalism has gained more relevance in this century, said historian M G S Naryanan on Sunday. He was inaugurating the national seminar organised in connection with the birth centenary celebrations of RSS second Sar Sanghachalak Madhav Sadasiva Golvakar (Sree Guruji) at Town Hall.

Speaking at the opening session on ‘Nationalism- Challenge and Response,’ MGS said that no country could exist without the feeling of nationalism. In the present scenario of globalisation, the foreigners would rule us if we failed to cultivate the feeling of nationalism among the people. Nationalism is facing several challenges, which include the threat of globalisation, fundamentalists, neighbouring countries and environmental deterioration.

The CPM activists opposed globalisation, which was actually propagated by Karl Marx in the 19th century, MGS said. Delivering the keynote address, K N Govindacharya said that diversity was the innate character of India.

Raveendran Pillai, chairman of the birth centenary celebration committee, presided over the meet.
