KESHAV BALIRAM HEDGEWAR

Discipline Personified

Doctorji was not only trying to inculcate discipline in others; he himself was discipline incarnate.

Once he had gone to Adegaon for the Upanayan (sacred-thread) ceremony in a friend's house there. Soon after the function, Doctorji informed his intention to return to Nagpur immediately. But his friends insisted that he stay with them at least for three or four days, as they enjoyed his pleasant company. The next day was a Sunday, the day of the weekly Sangh parade in the morning at Nagpur, which Doctorji wanted to attend at all cost, Though late, he left Adegaon with his companions in the night itself. There were no buses at that late hour from Adegaon, an oddly situated village. The distance between Adegaon and Nagpur was 32 miles.

But undaunted, Hedgewar started on the journey along the muddy track strewn with thorns. In the dead of night, he walked for about twenty miles and reached the main highway leading to Nagpur, which was still some ten miles away. As he was in a hurry, he could not afford sloth. After some time, however, there came a late running Nagpur-bound bus. They took it and reached Nagpur early next morning. This was how he participated in the weekly parade. The Swayamsevaks had thought that he would not be able to attend the parade. It was a sweet surprise to them all.

Doctorji was thus setting his own example of discipline and determination before all of them.
