“The world has enough for every man’s need, but not for any man’s greed.”
– Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
The name of Mahatma Gandhi transcends the bounds of race, religion, and nation-states, and has emerged as the prophetic voice of the twenty-first century. Today, Gandhi is remembered for his passionate adherence to the practice of non-violence and his supreme humanism, in every corner of the world. However, his teachings are losing their importance in the 21st century especially among the youth. An attempt was made to revisit the teachings of Gandhi when the children of classes VIII to XII attended an interactive session by Birad Rajaram Yajnik, a digital curator and author from India on 6th August, 2021. For a decade he has dedicated his life in the pursuit of spreading the message of Mahatma Gandhi all across the world through his innovative books, interactive talks, and curated experiential digital museums. In his talk, he spoke about the learnings of Gandhiji’s life that are relevant today by connecting different incidents from his life as one of the greatest Indian Freedom fighters to present-day situations. The session culminated with a question-answer round with students asking relevant and meaningful questions. In the end, every student and teacher went back with the idea that we may agree or disagree with Mahatma Gandhi and his ideology but we certainly cannot ignore him and his contribution to the world.
