Bengaluru: Loyola Degree College inaugurated the Gandhi Study Centre (GSC) on Tuesday, October 1. The theme of the programme was ‘Gandhi: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow’, as Wednesday marks the 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
Dr K Y Narayanaswamy of Maharani’s Arts, Commerce and Management College, Bengaluru, was the chief guest of the event.
Inaugurating the event, Dr Narayanaswamy insisted that the hate culture should be countered with a culture of love. He added that people should not be disheartened with the present context and instead, derive strength from Gandhi and Gandhism.
Dr Vincent, Director, GSC, gave a call to “rediscover Gandhi and make him relevant today". Rev Fr Francis D’Almeida SJ, the principal, in his message said, “Gandhi is in you”, reminding the students of their responsibilities and duties towards a better society.
Rev Fr Anthony Joseph SJ, the Rector, encouraged the students to be critical rather than accepting of dominant ideologies.
