During this, the chief guest was former Vice-Chancellor of Delhi University, Prof. Dinesh Singh discussed the relevance of Gandhiji in the pandemic outbreak. Said, in 1905, when there was an outbreak of plague in Johannesburg, South Africa, 35-year-old Gandhi lived there with his wife and four children.
Gandhiji, remembered as a man of thought and man of action, formed a volunteer team to fight the outbreak. Prof. Rakesh Bhatnagar said that Gandhiji did not leave the path of truth and non-violence even after facing all the troubles. As the greatest fighter of the Indian freedom struggle, Gandhiji made himself a message for others. At the same time, Director General of Indian Institute of Mass Communication, New Delhi, Prof. Sanjay Dwivedi said that no single webinar, magazine or a book is enough to consider any aspect of Gandhiji’s life. On this occasion, he kept the current criterion of Gandhiji’s three maha mantras and said that ‘on social media Don’t type bad, don’t like bad and don’t share bad’. On this occasion, an online exhibition of pictures of Mahatma Gandhi made on the walls of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Hostel was also presented. Professor Mahendra Kumar Singh proposed a vote of thanks.
Coordinator Dr. Dhirendra Kumar Rai, who is conducting the program, said that last year students, teachers and staff in the university remembered Bapu’s pious memory and his thoughts. The National Service Scheme (NSS) unit of the university had a cycle trip from Kashi to Sevagram Ashram which were aimed at getting the new generation aware of Bapu’s ideas.
