The RSS leadership in Kerala has brought a silent revolution, in the Hindu society of the State, especially in the intellectual spectrum, under the banner of Guruji Centenary Celebration Seminars, which have attracted mass audiences in specifically selected corners of the State.


None less than the Sarsanghachalak of RSS, K S Sudharshanji inaugurated these brainstorming sessions from the capital, Thiruvananthapuram, orchestrated in advance by the think tanks of the Parivar Organisations. The array of academics in the conference was prominent.


The aim of the seminars was to provide the view of RSS in matters relating to state, national and global issues at a time where a new intellectual initiative is obligatory Kerala.


Scholars who attended the seminars include even leftists intellectuals such as former naxalite  K.Venu , P. Govinda Pillai, Marxist theoretician and MP Parameswaran, left intellectual and proponent of the theory of fourth world. Another Leftist stalwart Prof. MN Vijayan, attended the Guru Poornima celebrations in Thrissur despite protests.


While the seminar at Thiruvananthapuram focused on `Cultural Nationalism’, the seminar at Thrissur focused on “An alternative for the development of Kerala.”  Many new intellectuals, academicians and prominent citizens participated in the seminars held at different parts of the state.


Sensing the mood among the intellectuals, the leftist ideological wing `Purogamana Kala Sahithya Sangham’ showed a cautious response to the RSS programmes. A prominent left leader admitted, “Organisations that are conducting programmes will definitely be benefited. The presence of MP Parameswaran or P Govinda Pillai in the seminars is not unusual. The presence of only those persons with the same ideology will not help in solving and understanding the inconsistencies of ideologies.”


The significance of the workshops also rest on the fact that the Parivar concentrated on neglected state wide issues that had been more or less ignored by politicians.


The entire RSS machinery was well oiled to make the seminars, Hindu Melas and gatherings of women, college students and professionals a grand success. The RSS decided to go more aggressive on its organizational activities. The culmination of the year – long Guruji birth centenary celebrations will be the occasion for the organization to enliven its activities and invigorate the cadres in the state.


The national leadership of the RSS decided the functions making the culminations of the Guruji birth centenary much earlier. But these provided the RSS state leadership an opportunity to refurbish the organizational machinery as well as the Hindu society. Two major ingredients of the valedictory functions were the taluk – level Vishala Hindu Sammelanams and the comprehensive door – to – door campaign. The attempts in the Visala Hindu Sammelanams were to bring together all Hindus irrespective or caste, creed or colour together.


Apart from this, the RSS workers approached all Hindu families in the state cutting cross party affiliations. Pamphlets containing the teachings of Guruji and the sangh ideology was distributed to all Hindu families. The RSS leadership is hopeful that all these activities will add new vigour to the cadres and widen the Sangh’s support base within the Hindu community.


The massive celebrations took place in Kerala is worried the leftist political parties, specially CPM, and the Christian and Muslim fundamentalists.


Though they dare not to say anything openly, they accept privately that the celebrations show the ground support for the Sangh Parivar in Kerala.  Though Kerala’s so called secular visual/print media blacked out the celebrations, the Sangh Parivar succeeded in bringing huge numbers of people for all the functions.


The Thiruvananthapuram district celebrations concluded with a massive Hindu Maha Sammelanam attended by none other than the Chief minister of Gujarath, Sri Narendra Modi. The function was attended by more than 50000 people within Tiruvananthapuram district.
