NEW DELHI, February 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Never has any occasion received such massive cross-culture support from all over the world as Matru-Pitru Pujan Diwas or Parents Worship Day held on 14th February. Cutting across religious groups, sects and castes, the call made by Pujya Shree Bapuji has reached out and made a home in every heart it touched. With India being a diverse nation comprising of individuals belonging to different communities, sects sometimes get into loggerheads with each other. Unity among all these diverse groups becomes visible only when they unanimously agree on a common cause, and the Matru-Pitru Pujan Diwas is one of those that is closing in on the ideological gaps. In an unprecedented manner, the support of millions towards this event has proved that they are completely united in their fight for Pujya Bapuji.
On this festive occasion, the enthusiasm and joy of parents and their children was on a high as celebrations spread across Pune, Mumbai, Chindwara, Delhi, Raipur, Gujarat as well as lesser-known towns and villages besides urban locations of the country.
It must be noted that Matru-Pitru Pujan Diwas celebrations have already begun in every known location of the nation, in early February and will culminate on 14th February, as suggested by Asaramji Bapu more than a decade ago. Information about Matru-Pitru Pujan Diwas celebrations speak an unprecedented tale of solidarity and the willingness to participate in this auspicious event.
Among many factors that have buoyed enthusiasm is the Karnataka, Higher Education Minister, C.T. Ravi (link below) to observe the day as Matru-Pitru Pujan Diwas in school, offices and on social platforms, not just in the states of Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh but also elsewhere. This widespread adoption is symbolic of great unanimity of Sadhaks and followers of Sant Shree Asaramji Bapu.
