Gandhiji remains extremely relevant today: Prez

Gandhiji remains extremely relevant today: Prez

New Delhi, Aug 14 (UNI) President Ram Nath Kovind on Wednesday said that ideals and philosophy of Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi remains relevant today .

Addressing the nation on the eve of 73rd Independence day, the President said,’’ Contemporary India is very different from the India in which Mahatma Gandhi lived and worked. Even so, Gandhiji remains extremely relevant. In his advocacy of sustainability, ecological sensitivity and living in harmony with nature, he anticipated pressing challenges of our times. When we design and deliver welfare programmes for our disadvantaged fellow citizens and families, when we seek to harness the power of the sun as renewable energy, we put Gandhian philosophy into action.’’

The President said that India completing 72 years as an independent nation came at a critical juncture coming as it does on the eve of the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

‘’We complete 72 years as a free nation at a very special juncture. In a few weeks from now, on October 2nd, we will celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of our Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, the guiding light of our successful effort to liberate our nation and of our continuing effort to reform our society of all inequities,’’the President said.
