Bihar students, artists take part in ‘prabhat pheri’ | Patna News


PATNA: Hundreds of students, artists and residents participated in the ‘prabhat pheri’ organised on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti on Saturday.
Education minister Vijay Kumar Choudhary, who was the chief guest at the event at AN Sinha Institute of Social Studies, said the success of Bapu’s Champaran Satyagraha made Mohan a Mahatma. He said Gandhi often used to say had he been a woman, he would not have tolerated any torture. “He also said that the true meaning of Swaraj is the courage of a person to speak against any injustice,” he said.
Noted Gandhian and Padma Shri awardee Prof Ramjee Singh spoke about empowerment of women by panchayati raj institutions in the context of Mahatma Gandhi’s vision of gram swaraj. He said Gandhiji used to say that if women get consciousness, no one can do wrong to them. “A woman is full of divine power, that is why she is worshipped,” Singh said.
He stressed that to establish peace in the country and outside, one has to learn from Gandhi’s philosophy of life.
Sree Kant, director of Jagjivan Ram Institute of Parliamentary Studies and Political Research, said when women came to participate in the Satyagraha, Bapu used to make them aware of the difficulties ahead.
Earlier, additional chief secretary and special secretary of education department, Sanjay Kumar and Satish Chandra Jha, respectively, flagged off the ‘prabhat pheri’.
