Mahatma Gandhi Death Anniversary

On the occasion of the 69th death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, SCN school, Maria Vidyalaya, Khorimahua, marched 5 km for peace and communal harmony from the school to Gandey Block.

Students and teachers carrying banners and placards with the slogans on communal harmony included, “Hands not for hurting, but for help,” and “India is Unity of all religions.”

The purpose of the rally was to inculcate the spirit of peace and communal harmony as Gandhi had visualized amongst people from different walks of life which is the need of the hour to lead our country towards progress. This is more relevant and necessary in today’s atmosphere where hatred, disharmony, violence and intolerance are spreading at an alarming rate and moral values are on a decline.

At Gandey Block the spoke persons namely, Mr. Mahendra Chottan Uron BDO, Mrs. Manisha Pandit Pramuch, Mr. Anwar Ansary Vice Pramuch, Father Robert Murmu Secretary of the school rendered obituary to Mahatma Gandhi’s picture with the garland. The message from Chief person was to learn from Mahatma Gandhi and never to resort to violence and intolerance and to work for promoting harmony, goodwill, and peace in the world. All others present there expressed the same feelings. At the end, Sister Rose thanked each and every one present there for their valuable presence with the invitation of keeping Mahatma Gandhi as the ideal and practicing at least one thought of Bapu in life.
