Gandhi Jayanti Celebration

The SY D. El. Ed. students of Nirmala Institute of Education, Altinho, Panaji organised an event to commemorate the life, values and principles of Mahatma Gandhi. The program opened by invoking the blessings of the Almighty through a prayer service. 

Sonia Koppalkar, General Secretary, Student Council, D.El.Ed. N.I.E. presented a monologue. She personified Kasturba Gandhi lamenting upon the current state of the country and how far removed it is from her Bapu's original vision for India.

This was followed by a short interactive skit written and produced by the students highlighting the important events in the life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and his ascent to becoming the foremost leader in India's freedom struggle and an inspiration to the world.

The penultimate program on the schedule was a Quiz on the life, values, and doctrines of Gandhiji. It was a successful event that brought to life the man who shook the foundations of the British Empire and established Swaraj in India.

The Principal of the institute, Dr. Delia Antao addressed the gathering, congratulating Mrs.Debbie Fernandes and her students, commending their efforts towards raising awareness on Gadhiji's life and on their successful organization of the event.
