Vrindavan 2016.07.09 (VT): Governor of UP state, Ram Naik, visited Vrindavan yesterday on the occasion of “Maha Samprokshan Mahotsava” at the Varadraj temple. While addressing the crowd came from all over the India, the Governor said that the Jawahar Bagh incident was sad and has maligned the image of the holy city. But the Government is working hard to revive the lost glory of the area and soon the results will be seen.
During his visit to Vrindavan, Governor Ram Naik also visited Hasanand Gaushala established by Pandit Mahamana Madan Mohan Malviya in 1935. He said that Pandit Ji was a visionary, like no one else, as he not only thought of establishing a cowshed to protect the holy animal and irrigation system of the agriculture dependent country, but also established a world class university in Varanasi by the name Banaras Hindu University. He further said that even after 70 years of independence the Government has not been able to create a university of that standard anywhere in India.
The chairman of Hasanand Gaushala S.K. Sharma gave a souvenir to the Governor as a remembrance.
Talking about the temple, Governor said that the Varadaraj temple which was constructed in 1875 is an example of rich Hindu culture. The renovation of such a temple and deity installation is precious in itself. He also thanked all the members who supported in the noble cause.
While talking about the cultural aspect, Mr. Naik said that Sanskrit language is the soul of India. He was delighted that all the sadhus’ present in the festival will be speaking in Sanskrit only, even on stage, breaking the general tradition. As a chancellor, he has also welcomed suggestion for the improvement of Sanskrit University in Varanasi, so as to raise the level of the language and aware other people as well.
The sadhus present in the festival also requested the Governor to propose the central Government asking Sanskrit as the second language of the country.
