SCOUTING IN INDIAScouting movement started in India right from 1909 but it was limited to English and Anglo-Indian childrenonly. Some Indians and English people started the troops for Indian Boys in 1913. But it was officially startedby Dr.Annie Besant assisted by Dr.G.S.Arundale in 1916 through Boy Scouts association in Madras. PanditMadan Mohan Malaviya, Pandit Hriday Nath Kunjaroo and Pandit Bahpeyi founded the Seva Samithi ScoutAssociation Allahabad in 1917.In the year 1921 Lord & Lady Baden Powell visited the Indian Scout movement and were satisfied with theactivities. However, they tried to bring together the different organizations working for the movement butthey did not succeed.In 1937 Lord and Lady B.P. again visited India. The National movement for freedom was intense in thosedays.B.P. attended the first Indian Jamboree at Delhi from February 1-7, 1937. In his address B.P. advisedthe scouts to do their best to make the country happy and prosperous by their good turns.
 Pt. Madan Mohan Dr. Annie Besant Pt. Hriday Nath Kunjaroo Shree Ram BajpeyiMalaviyaScouting is a Movement, not an Organization" said Lord Baden Powell.
Lord Baden Powell, the founder of the Scout Movement has emphasized the fact that Scouting is a Movement,which moves along with times and progresses and not just an Organization which generally adheres to ScoutCraft only. We may generally say that the Scout craft is sevenfold. It includes :(1) Discipline, which teaches through theory as well as practice, self-discipline, obedience to scout law andsense of duty.(2) Observation of details, tracking and judging distances and heights forms the second rigid rules. The aimof this Movement is to inculcate good citizenship in the future men and women of the nation by means of whatis known as Scout Craft aspect of this craft.(3) Camping cooking resourcefulness, Nature Study, cycling etc. From part of its third aspect, commonlyknown as woodcraft.(4) Health and endurance, which includes physical development, cleanliness, sanitation is another aspect whichis indeed very important in life.(5) Chivalry including courtesy, charity, thrift and honour, courage, and cheerfulness.(6) Inculcation of patriotism and(7) Knowledge of life-saving devices is the other two aspect of this scout craft. And all these are taught toour young would-be citizens theoretically and also practically by certain tests devised for the purpose andthrough games.The Scout or the Guide is always playing the game. They are always expected to and always do follow the rulesof the brotherhood when they are on duty or at their lessons. Young people are uncompromising idealists andthey want a game, which they can play all the time and give their whole mind and Scouting provides theircomplete absorption and it is admittedly beneficent absorption.
Boys and girls appreciate idealism even if they do not always find expression for it. Lord Baden Powell showedhow this idealism could be turned into action. He provided practical means for developing those qualities ofcharacter that the boys admire in their heroes, "men accustomed to live on their own resources, taking theirlives in their hands, brave and loyal to their lives employers, chivalrous and helpful to each other, unselfishand reliable-Men, in fact, of the best type." So he showed the boy how they too could become self-reliant andhow they could, by practice, lean to keep cool-headed and useful in time of sudden emergency. He pointed outthat this requires training. So first aid, fire-fighting, life saving and other skills must be learnt in order to BEPREPARED.In 1896 our founder, as Colonel Baden Powell, was in Ashanti in Africa. After the conflict on entering thetown was met and greeted by the African Chief. B.P. held out his right hand. The African Chief said, "No, youmust shake my left hand, because only the Bravest Of The Brave Shake hands With The Left".And also the left hand is nearer to our heart so it's given as aHearty Shake Hand.
