The honorable Vice Chancellor addressed the audience and expressed his views on nonviolence. We also presented our papers on “Relevance of Gandhian Philosophy of Non-Violence in Cotemporary Times” and “Gandhi and Women’s Questions”. Indeed Gandhian philosophy is not a merely political and intellectual philosophy. Rather, Gandhi’s thought is conceived, to a great extant, out of action and as a guide to action. There is a need to go beyond theoretical discussion of Gandhian philosophy because world needs moral and ethical tool to counter all the political, social and moral corruption which exist outside and inside of every individual. Prof. Ramesh C. Bharadwas ended the programme by saying thanks to all and emphasizes the need to practice Gandhian philosophy.
