The school had earlier conducted a skit on the theme of ‘Asatya Par Satya Ki Jeet’, a film show on Gandhi, was addressed by Ritu Sachdeva on Swadeshi, collage and drawing competition for junior school students.
Principal Ashu Tiwary said, Gandhi’s principles of non violence, self sufficiency, communal harmony, and simple living and truth are something that stirred entire India at one point of time.
Prof Rao emphasized on Ahimsa, Satyagraha, Swadeshi, and Sarvodaya. He very effectively drew out the best points in the concluding remarks.
