From time to time in the universe, the divine have been incarnating in human form for the fulfillment of special objectives and goals, who reach the supreme abode after completing their tasks or after planting seeds. The land of India has been fertile enough for this. One of the remarkable personalities who incarnated here was Pt. Deendayal ji Upadhyay. After taking birth at the right and proper time, he was a sage-like angel, a selfless social worker, politician, the flag bearer of national culture, the son of Saraswati, the promoter of spiritual-materialism.
It is a matter of happiness that Deen Dayal Shodh Kendra was established by the Government of Uttar Pradesh under Chhatrapati Shahu Ji Maharaj University, Kanpur. I have received this project of Pt. Deendayal Upadhyay Vichar-Darshan in the form of director in Deendayal Shodh Kendra, an opportunity to repay the sage-debt. I pray to God to give me courage to follow the path presented by Pt. Deendayal ji Upadhyay. So that the society can get ideological benefits.
