The spirit of tolerance and assimilation are the hallmarks of Indian civilization, and Shekhawati is no exception to this. Baba Ramdev festival is a shining example of how different communities find common ground here as they come together and celebrate in each other’s presence. In this land, such examples can be found in abundance; however there are elements who occasionally try to disturb the internal peace which is an intrinsic part of our social fabric. Never has the question of communal harmony and social integration raised such a wide range of emotions as today. Considering this, Sewajyoti attaches utmost importance to the promotion of communal harmony and a sense of brotherhood among communities.
Sewajyoti regularly conducts events, congregations and meet ups to celebrate festivals of different communities with an active involvement of their members. On one hand, it celebrates Diwali and on the other Id-ul-fitra. Needless to say, people from all religions and castes take part in these programmes and further strengthen the bond of brotherhood that traditionally exists between them. Such occasions often take emotional turns with people hugging and congratulating each other. While Muslims, Sikhs and Christians take part in Diwali celebrations, Hindus come to attend Id festival with their Muslim brothers. On the occasion of Holi, people from diverse background gather to enjoy the festival of colours while during the month of Ramzan Hindus rush to congratulate Muslims attending Sewajyoti’s Iftar parties.
With these celebrations, Sewajyoti tries to re-emphasize the glorious tradition of togetherness, mutual respect, tolerance and regard for other religions that are in existence in India for ages.
Simple opportunities to sit together and discuss, respect each other’s sentiments and religious traditions, and understand other communities’ viewpoints makes a lot of difference in preservation of our Ganga Jamuni Culture.
Apart from religious festivals, Sewajyoti also celebrates important events such as Independence Day, Republic Day, Women’s Day, AIDS day, Disabled Day and Girl Child Day.
Celebrations also take place on the birth anniversary of Late Sh. Radheshyam R Morarka, whose life and selfless contributions to the society have been the inspiration behind our organization. Similarly, his death anniversary is also celebrated when we take a resolve to selflessly work in the service of the society and the country.
