Mumbai: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that trade should not just be taken as a profession, but it must be considered a part of one’s dharma.

“Our trade should increase employment and all our work should be the best. We have to develop a situation, wherein people from across the world should come here if one wants to learn excellence,” said Bhagwat in his address to traders at BSE on Thursday. He was delivering a talk on ‘Nationalism and Ethical Practices in Business.’

The RSS chief said India and the rest of the world have different views when it comes to industries. “For the world, industries, agriculture are different sectors. We consider all of them inter-related. If industries prosper, agriculture will also prosper. If trade does not increase, industries will not be encouraged to grow. If trade increases, manufacturing will also grow.”

He said caste politics is prevalent in the country because people vote in the name of caste. “In any sphere of life, be it trade or politics, the ethical practices adopted socially get reflected in politics.

There is a need to bring about a change.

Bhagwat said politics, by itself, is not the way through which change can be brought about. He said politicians can rectify things up to a certain limit and that self-interests need to be sacrificed to improve things.

The RSS chief said if the society is transformed, politicians could openly say that politics should not be played in the name of caste. He said a change in the mindset of the society leads to change in the way politics is done.

Bhagwat said, "luxuries and prestige" are temporary and one should steer clear of them without getting affected. "Wherever I go, there is a self-contained room reserved for me. There are razors, tooth-brushes, toothpastes, towel kept for me, although I carry my own stuff. I never imagined this. I used to do my own work when I held other posts in the RSS. But since all this has come, I have to go through it," he said.
