Event Description

 GANDHI SAMAGAM is planned to organize as a Memorial of 90 years of Gandhiji & 60 years of Vinobaji first visit to Odisha


So Gandhi isn’t gone. He is around us as an eternal furtive onlooker. Celebrating Gandhi is like celebrating the universal human values. Gandhi Dashan is to commemorate his eternal presence. This ceremonious occasion is to awaken the new generation about Bapu and his contribution to the world of thought and action.

Gandhi has been and will continue to be an enigma unless we decipher his importance in terms of his daring endeavours, experiments about connecting public policies to individual and social welfare.
In short, Gandhism is about translating empirical spirituality into secular welfare and individual development.
Time has come to understand Gandhi beyond ceremony and through the substance of his relevant today. He was one person who always thought ahead of his time and thus is the most modern Indian.
The salient characteristics of Gandhian ideology are its empirical and utilitarian nature that would culminate in maximal general welfare.
And that is the prime aim of organizing this first-of-its-kind in the State a grand GANDHI SAMAGM

In the grand Samagam, we look into the objectives so as:
Invite everyone who believes in the spirit of Gandhi and Vinoba, to share a common living with Gandhian Fellows;
To create a platform of people and institutions having common thoughts and views for a collective living with peace, harmony and universal brotherhood;
To endeavour to revive, promote, spread and reinforce Gandhian values of truth, non-violence, self reliance, swadeshi and sustainable development; and
To endeavour to infuse the spirit of Gandhi deep into the prevailing social, cultural, economic and political life of the society we live in;
Expected Impact
Fellowship of over 500 Gandhians from across the country;
Create Awareness among participants and a pulse among the general public on the relevance of Mahatma Gandhi in the 21st century
Development of a plan of action to implement as well as carry forward Bapu’s principles, ideas and constructive activities to inspire the generations to come;
The Agenda

This Grand GANDHI SAMAGAM is planned to organize as a Memorial of 90 years of Gandhiji & 60 years of Vinobaji first visit to Odisha
