Haridwar, September 30
The Western world is fast acknowledging and following the principles of Mahatma
This was stated by Padma Shree awardee SP Verma
who is the vice-chairman of the Gandhi Global Family - an institution that
propagates the principles of the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi worldwide.
He said United States of America President Barack
Obama, British, French, Russian, African leaders and people of various Asian
countries were drawing inspirations from Gandhi’s philosophy.
Verma said the time when Gandhi’s principles were
being globally acknowledged, Indians seemed to be getting a bit deflected which
was a matter of concern.
Adding further, he said in this regard a two-day
convention would be organised in Haridwar at Jai Ram Ashram from tomorrow by
the Gandhi Global Family whose chairperson is Union Minister of Health Gulam
The convention will dwell on six topics namely
communal harmony, social evils, employment, national integration, friendship
with neighbouring countries and global peace in the era of terrorism.
More than 1,000 members of the Gandhi Global
Family are expected to participate in the national convention and dwell on the
Gandhian philosophy on the bank of the Ganga.
Chief of the Jai Ram Ashram Braham Swaroop
Brahamchari said in today’s era violence, communalism, terrorism, hatred,
regionalism and self-interests had taken a front seat. It’s imperative to
revert to Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophy which was, "Think for all, care for
