Working for a Mission
Established in 1963, Bharat Vikas Parishad is a service-cum-sanskar oriented, non-political, socio-cultural voluntary organisation. It is dedicated to the development and growth of our country in all fields of human endeavour – cultural, social, academic, moral, national and spiritual – by promoting a sense of patriotism, national unity and integrity.
On the birth centenary of Swami Vivekanand i.e. on 12th January, 1963, the Citizens Council set up by leading industrialists and social reformers like late Lala Hans Raj and Dr. Suraj Prakash, initially to mobilise citizens efforts to fight the Chinese attack, was renamed as Bharat Vikas Parishad. Parishad is thus motivated and guided by the ideals and teachings of Swami Vivekananda.
Bharat Vikas Parishad was registered as a Society under the Societies Registration Act 1860 on the 10th July, 1963.
Our Mission is to organise the elite, intellectuals and the well-to-do citizens and to motivate them to serve our poor, disabled, illiterate and ignorant brethren not as an act of charity but in the true spirit of our cultural tradition of service as duty.
Our Vision is development and growth of Bharat, in all fields of human endeavour – cultural, social, academic, moral, national and spiritual – culminating in
Swasth – Samarth – Sanskarit Bharat
i.e. physically, economically and morally strong India.
The action plan for implementation of Parishad’s policies and programmes is executed through the following sutras (maxims):
- Sampark (Fellowship)Identify and establish personal contacts with such persons who will enroll themselves as members to accept responsibility and render effective assistance in Parishad’s activities.
- Sahyog (Cooperation)Enlist active co-operation and support of influential persons and give them responsibility.
- Sanskaar (Moral Orientation)Educate and orient members and well-wishers by inculcating in them a positive awareness of the noblest aspects and the spiritual values of our heritage.
- Sewa (Service)The logical culmination of efforts put in during the foregoing stages is service – selfless and dedicated service – not as an act of charity, condescension or favour conferred on the recipient, but in the true spirit of our cultural tradition treating service as worship.
- Samarpan (Commitment)All these maxims are indispensable for proper grooming of our citizens and their family members towards the service of our motherland.
“We are Unique”
Bharat Vikas Parishad is a service-cum-sanskar oriented non-political socio-cultural family-based voluntary organisation, where both husband and wife join as members to serve the society.
The members of the Parishad meet their own expenses while participating in its activities and also contribute towards administrative expenses of the organisation. Funds collected for projects and programmes are kept separately and are spent 100 per cent exclusively for the designated purposes.
Parishad lays emphasis on developing the competence of the beneficiaries through their involvement so that they are no longer dependent on charity and lead a dignified and honorable life.
