“To the wrongs that need resistance, To the right that needs assistance, To the future in the distance, I offer myself.”
For Dr. Heggade perhaps the most overwhelming task of being a Dharmadhikari was to witness people suffer because of social and economic factors that they were beyond their control. It was then that Dr Heggade realized that to truly help this cycle of suffering he had to make changes at a more fundamental level so as to eradicate the root of the problem.
“If you inspire the youth they will do the rest.”
Young participation is important because youth are the country’s power. Youth are strong forces in social movements. Dr. Heggade went on to redress those who were broken by unemployment, personal and familial tragedies. To overcome this issue a new initiative was taken in a humble manner, for converting these unemployed youth into prolific assets. The experiment was found successful and resulted in the establishment of Rural Development & Self Employment Training Institute (RUDSETI) .This Institute through its experimentation and innovation adopted a unique approach of identifying, motivating, training and facilitating the unemployed youth to take up self-employment. This is run jointly by Sri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Education Trust, Syndicate Bank & Canara Bank with Dr. D. Veerendra Heggade, Dharmadhikari of Sri Kshetra Dharmasthala as the President of this organization.
