स्वार्थ आणि अहंकार यांच्या वार्यापासून दूर राहिलेला माणूस सेवावृत्तीने कसं नवरचनात्मक कार्य करू शकतो, याचं दर्शन श्री. देशमुखांच्या अनेक संस्थांपासून घडू शकते.

धर्मनीती आणि राजनीती दोन्ही जर एका व्यक्तीकडे असतील तर तोच आदर्श नेता बनू शकतो. बापूंच्या जीवनामध्ये दोन्ही नितींना स्वतंत्र स्थान आहे.

श्री. सुभाष देशमुख एक अजब रसायन आहे. परिसाचे दुसरे रूप म्हणावे असे कर्तृत्व आहे. लोकमान्यता आहे. आपल्या प्रत्येक यशात सर्वांना वाटेकरी करून घेणार्या सुभाषबापूंसारखे नेते आता विरळच झाले आहेत.

बापूंचे मन आकाशासारखे आहे. अंतःकरणात माया, ममता आहे, गर्वाचा लवलेशही नाही. त्यांनी सुरू केलेल्या इवल्याश्या सेवा कार्याचा आज वटवृक्ष झालेला दिसतो आहे.
