On this day—1 march 1985, 27 years ago Prabir Ghosh founded the Rationalist Association [Science & Rationalists Association of India or Bharatiya Bigyan O Yuktibadi Samiti].
The organization started its long journey with relentless struggle against superstition and blind faith – its chief aim being a better society without deprivation and economic differences. Spiritualism and religiosity had been used in India as a tool for exploitation for ages. So along with anti-superstition programs, the aim of the organization gradually spread over to a total social philosophy of Neo-socialism. The concept of self-reliant villages and classless democratic societies where people live in self-sufficient communes has gained popularity throughout the world.
