GANDHI PEACE CONVENTION

15 -16 OCTOBER 2015

Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction, devised by the ingenuity of man. This was the message that echoed throughout the two-day Gandhi Peace Convention at Ahlcon International School Mayur Vihar Phase I, Delhi 91.

DAY 1

The lighting of the lamp gave an auspicious start to the two-day Convention, followed by the presidential address by Prof. M M Verma, President of Interfaith Foundation India. The Keynote address was given by Prof. S M Sajid, Jamia Millia Islamia. Later, the Guests of Honor Dr Radha Bhatt, Dr Lal Utreja interacted with the students and gave them valuable insights on the theme. The chief guest of the day was Hon’ble Shri H K Dua, who shared some very interesting anecdotes with the students and exhorted them to imbibe Gandhian values. Later, during the day, Maj. Gen. P K Saighal (Retd.) addressed the gathering and instilled the spark of self-belief in young minds. Dr Alok Bajpai, a noted Gandhian and Psychiatrist, IIT, Kanpur steered the session towards the need of developing mental resilience. Declamation competition was also organized that gave the students a chance to express their thoughts. Eloquent speakers, from among the students, were duly rewarded.

DAY 2

It was a splendid morning of valediction to the occasion. It was an event, which celebrated Bapu’s greatness, life and philosophy. The second day of the convention began with the opening remarks by Prof M.M. Verma. He spoke about the relevance of Gandhian thought and philosophy in today’s World. The distinguished panelists, who have treaded the path shown by the Mahatma, were Mr SN Sahu, Joint Secretary, Rajya Sabha. Prof. Surendra Pathak, Director Research, IASE University and Ezekiel Isaac Malekar, the head of the Jewish community, graced the occasion. After the Memento presentation, began the interactive session on the theme of ‘Exploring Gandhi’. About 20 schools participated in the interactive session. Thought provoking and searching questions were asked, which the panelists sought to answer. Later, the Valedictory Session was chaired by Prof. MM Verma. Dr A Annamalai, Prof. Hema Raghavan, and Dr Rohini Ahuwalia highlighted different aspects of Gandhian thoughts and practices. Mr Arif Md. Khan, former Union Minister, was the Chief Guest of the session. He explained the cultural roots of Gandhi’s philosophy.

The Convention reiterated the significance of the Gandhian way of life in the young minds. The Gandhi Peace Convention brought Gandhian values close to the students. “Our young students have the potential to be the change they want”, said Principal Ashok Pandey of Ahlcon International School.
