Revolutionaries have left their mark on freedom efforts, says Sumitra Mahajan | Pune News

PIMPRI CHINCHWAD: Lok Sabha spokesperson Sumitra Mahajan – here in the city to issue a postage stamp in memory of freedom fighter Damodar Hari Chapekar – said the contribution of revolutionary freedom fighters to the struggle for Indian freedom cannot be overlooked.
“The freedom movement was not just a nonviolent struggle. Many revolutionaries sacrificed their lives before Mahatma Gandhi came to the fore and made people aware. As such, the contribution of revolutionaries remains equally important,” she told Chapekarwada in Chinchwadgaon.
Mahajan also emphasized the need not to restrict grown-ups within caste boundaries. “We try to instill good cultural values ​​in our children. If some of them take the wrong path, it is not only their fault, but also the fault of others,” she said.
Speaking about the importance of writing letters, she said: “The Postal Service was about to die. However, it has now been revived. We have lost the habit of writing letters. Today, we don’t even talk to our neighbors anymore. We don’t have time to talk to our own children either. If we write a letter to our children, they too will write letters and speak out. Children commit suicide for minor reasons like mothers scolding them or failing exams. We need to strengthen relationships between people.
Union Minister Hansraj Ahir, District Custodian Minister Girish Bapat and others were also present at the ceremony. SC Agarwal, the postmaster general of Maharashtra and Goa, spoke about the life of the Chapekar brothers. He said the Postal Service issues stamps to raise awareness of great leaders, the country’s natural diversity and for a variety of other purposes. Philately is an important hobby. The postal department grants a scholarship of Rs 6,000 to students in classes VI to IX to promote philately.
