GANDHI 150 PROGRAMMES:
JULY 10, 2019:
Workshop for 225 students of Gandhiji Mat.Hr.Sec.School, Avadi, Chennai from 9.30 am to 12 noon on “Peace Education based on Gandhian Values” was conducted by Dr.S.Kulandaisamy, Secretary, GPF, Dr.C.Shenbagavalli, Joint Secretary, GPF and Mr.R.Poornachandran, Retd.Principal of Jaigopal Garodia Vivekananda Vidyalaya, Avadi.
The main theme was to make the students to understand that everyone in this world is the centre of the earth and one has to be fully responsible for whatever that happens in the world. We live in this world with the general attitude “What if I only commit a mistake?”. This attitude is the root cause of all violence, terrorism, depletion of natural resources, esp. the water, the pollution etc.
So one has to change to see the change outside. The methodology of the workshop was interaction, dialogue, story telling, skits etc. All the students participated well because the workshop was designed in such a way that everyone could equally participate. This culture educates the youth towards self reliance and team work too, the basis of true democracy. After attending this workshop, students learnt to say “Let me first change and me atleast do the right thing” instead of the previous attitude ” What if I do a wrong thing?”.
