R S PURA: Parents Worship Day was celebrated at Hanuman Dham, R.S Pura, here by Satsang Prachar Sewa Mandal (SPSM), Jammu and Kashmir.
People from all walks of life attended the event with fervour. Narinder Dass Maharaj was the Chief Guest whereas Bhupinder Shastri was also present and witnessed the function of children from all age groups worshipping their parents and showing their respect and gratitude towards them. Children from various schools also participated in the function. Narinder Dass expressed that such events help creating a sense of responsibility amongst children towards their parents.
He said that 14th February called Valentine Day being celebrated by some followers of western culture started 15 to 20 years back in India but now is being celebrated throughout the week and followed by young generation blindly leading them to nowhere. Such practices shall not be promoted in our country.
Bhupinder Shastri said that this is the country of cultural values and evils of western countries shall be culminated through the practices like Parents Worship Day.
Secretary SPSM Rakesh Kumar disclosed that we find increasing lack of accord between parents and children.
The consequent event and increasing number of resorting to old age home have become the cause of concern. Western practices like Valentine Day are widening the chasm in this pious relationship and consequently the radianance and vitality of nation’s future generation is being destroyed.
