To commemorate the birth anniversary of Gandhiji, the doyen of non-violence, an elocution event was conducted for the students of senior school. The students spoke eloquently on the topic ‘Global Violence: Are we civilised or not?’ This generation has come across global violence in a major way and they realise the need for non-violence now more than ever before. After all we followed the great leader and won freedom 68 years ago supporting fearlessly his tenet of ‘non-violence’. Basically, the fight against global violence is not more violence but by stopping further heinous acts through treaties, rules and awareness. Most of the speakers spoke forthrightly about the drawbacks of violence and the need for implementing World Peace. The young minds are the best judge as they have learnt from examples and experiences taken from the past. The young speakers have left many questions unanswered though which the doyens of world peace need to listen to and respond.
