A three-month certificate course on Gandhian philosophy for high school students was inaugurated at Bandi Mutyalamma ZP High School in Mutyalapalli near Narsapur on Friday. The course is sponsored by the UGC through the Gandhian Studies Centre of Sri YN College.
The Mogalturu ZPTC member Gubbala Nagaraju and MPP K Mutyala Rao released a booklet on Gandhiji, published by Gandhian Studies Centre. Speaking on the occasion, Nagaraju asked the students to read about Gandhi and other freedom fighters and to practice it in their daily life. The MPP Mutyala Rao said that students and teachers should read about Gandhiji every day and it should be their daily practice in schools and colleges. There are 70 students who joined in this course.
The director of Gandhian Studies Centre, Prof. D Venkateswara Rao, said that Gandhian principles are more practicable and one should imbibe those principles rather values from the students level. He regretted that people were giving less importance to Gandhian principles and giving publicity to Gandhiji.
“The commercial element has entered into Gandhian principles and everybody using those principles for their own gains and popularity. The entire world is looking at Gandhiji for two reasons--world peace and sustainable development. By following Gandhian principles, we should promote world peace and maintain our development. Whatever we achieved should be maintained in the future also.
Gandhian principles are advocating the sustainability of our environment, economy, human values, health etc., and that’s why Gandhiji is an icon in the world today. The students must read and understand the essence of Gandhiji and Gandhi principles which are nothing but a way of life,” he added.
Gandhi Youth Association leader Nagidi Rambabu, School Education Society chairperson Naga Raju and others participated in the programme.
