Founder of Rashtriya Swayamsevak sangh, Dr. Hedgewar was poor but never sought a job as his full time was engaged in ccc work. However, he functioned as an LIC doctor, issuing certificates to policy holders, for a monthly salary of Rs. 30 for 4 months, unable to decline the request of Swayamsevaks, but offered all his earnings of Rs 120 before sacred saffron flag on Guru Pooja day. 2. A poor Vanavasi boy was working as a help at Rs. 60 a month in a vanavasi hostel run by Swayamsevaks. He had studied only upto 4th standard. Once an RSS Pracharak visited the hostel. The boy found out that though an M.Sc , LL. B., the pracharak worked for RSS expecting nothing in return. It inspired the boy. Then on, he worked at the hostel for 15 years without accepting any money. (Both anecdotes were narrated by Shri Mohanji Bhagwat, RSS Sarkaryawah at the South Chennai Guru Pooja function on July 20, 2008).
