Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): A special lecture on Future of Humanity was organised under the joint aegis of department of continuing education and human resource development centre of Barkatullah University on Gandhi Jayanti on Saturday.
Barkatullah University vice chancellor Professor RJ Rao inaugurated the programme. Keynote speaker Professor Girishwar Mishra, the former vice chancellor of Mahatma Gandhi International Hindi University, Wardha, said, “Gandhiji was not a prisoner of circumstances. He used to say that we are near to God and one who serves man can easily reach God. Gandhiji believed in truth and practised it in his life.”
“Gandhiji wanted political, educational, cultural and economic freedom in the country. Gandhiji had said hate the sin, not the sinner,” he added. Professor KB Panda from the language department spoke on times and life of Gandhi and Shastri.
Rao said, “It is necessary to implement Gandhiji's ideas in our life. Not every man can become Gandhi, but even if we adopt even 10 per cent of his ideas, then the country will become as before.”
