Newsdesk: High Commissioner Pranay Verma visited the Gandhi Ashram at Noakhali on 30 January 2023 and paid rich tributes to Mahatma Gandhi on his 75th death anniversary. The Ashram commemorates Bapu’s “Peace Mission” to Noakhali in 1946 and his message of non-violence and communal harmony.

High Commissioner also participated in a discussion titled “The Relevance of Mahatma Gandhi in the Contemporary World” organized by the Gandhi Ashram Trust. Members of the Trust, local political leaders, representatives of local administration as well as civil society and academia joined the interaction.

In his remarks, High Commissioner Verma underlined the guiding light of Gandhiji’s philosophy of truth, humanism and non-violence in showing us the path to deal with today’s global menace of extremism and terrorism. He also emphasised Gandhiji’s belief in harmony with nature, his determination for the empowerment of the poorest and his message of “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” that inspires the motto of “One Earth, One Family, One Future” adopted by India for its G20 Presidency.

During his visit to the Ashram, High Commissioner also planted a mango sapling and took a guided tour of the museum. Students of the Gandhi Ashram Trust performed a cultural show on the life and teachings of Mahatma Gandhi.
