Abstract

A study of the growth of organised service to humanity in the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and organisations linked to the sangh parivar. The chapter challenges the view popularly held within these movements that their commitment to organised philanthropy has emerged as a consequence of the development of their founders' ideas.
