Milind Soman is the new trend on Twitter since he revealed about his life in RSS in his book Made In India.
In his book, there is an excerpt in which he talked about that he was part of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) when he was a young boy.
The model-actor also mentioned how he used to go to the local ‘shakha’, or training centre at Mumbai’s Shivaji Park.
Trending at 54 for an experience I had at the age of 10. 🤪🤪🤪🤪 wish it was about swimming, which was at the same time!— Milind Usha Soman (@milindrunning) March 10, 2020
The 54-year-old actor wrote in his book that “his father was a great believer in the benefits that would accrue to a young boy, in terms of disciplined living, physical fitness, and right-thinking, from being part of the junior cadres of the RSS.”
Soon after this news broke out on Internet Milind grabbed the top spot among Twitter trends and tweet threads have flooded the Internet.
"When I read today all the subversive, communal propaganda the media attributes to RSS shakhas, I am frankly baffled," Milind said in his book, The Print reports.
He also added how his evening was completely different at shakhas. “We marched about in our khaki shorts, did some yoga, worked out in a traditional outdoor gymnasium with no fancy equipment, sang songs and chanted Sanskrit verses that we did not understand the meanings of, played games and had a bunch of fun with our fellows," Soman revealed in his book.
According to The Print, Milind said that his father was also a part of RSS and was proud Hindu. He also added in his memoir, “I didn't see what there was to be proud about, but on the other hand, I didn't see that there was much to complain about either.”
