Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh USA Inc. (“HSS”) pays homage to the memory of Pujaneeya K. Sudarshan ji, the fifth Sar-Sanghachalak of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (“RSS”), who died on Saturday, September 15, 2012, in Raipur, India, of heart attack. He was 81 years old.
Pujaneeya Sudarshan ji was born on June 18, 1931, and became an RSS swayamsevak at the age of 9. After completing his studies in engineering at Sagar University, he became an RSS pracharak, or lifelong volunteer worker, in 1955. He served in various regional and national capacities in RSS, including Sar-Karyavah, or national Executive Director, from 1990 to 2000, and Sar-Sanghachalak, or national President, from 2000 to 2009.
Pujaneeya Sudarshan ji visited the United States several times and provided guidance to HSS volunteers about Hinduism, Sangh and Sangh activities in many places around the country, including Hindu Sangam events on the West Coast and Southwest.
We offer our Shraddhanjali and pray for Sadgati to the departed soul.
