Dear members and organisatiors of the above mentioned event. I am happy to get this opportunity and will join also as representative of Antyodaya Chetana Mandal, Odisha India where I am working since 5 years in peace and development activities. I request you to kindly inform me which time the event starts on 27th September. I will come from Usedom, Germany to reach your location in time. I would like to know if any accomodation could be arranged by you as those far distance to tarvel 2 times a day would be quite exhausting. Also if anything can be arranged on the mentioned topic on Gandhi and Poverty, I would be pleased to do so as Aditya Patnaik, (Secretary of Antyodaya Chetana Mandal and a Gandhian by body, mind and soul and involved in many gandhian activities in India and worldwide) would take part indirectly through my presence and points can be discussed through experiences in Odisha and Gandhijis involvement there. Kindly inform me as soon as possible for a proper preparation of mine. With kind regards

Though poverty may be prevalent in India and elsewhere Gadhism is still relevant today.
