I appreciate the efforts of the New Acropolis Cultural Organization in providing a platform to develop leadership for a better world, inspired by the ideal of Mahatma Gandhi. I am positive that the conference will be instrumental in leveraging the strength of quintessential Indian ideals that Bapu symbolized.
It is praiseworthy that New Acropolis Cultural Organization is celebrating 150th Birth anniversary of Rashtra Pita Mahatma Gandhi and that to mark the celebration, an event with the theme, Empowering Real Change: Leadership for a Better World, has been organized.
I am pleased to know that this conference, "Empowering Real Change: Leadership for a Better World”, is being hosted to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth.
I believe that events like these are especially needed today, in order to educate our youth, to inspire them to dare to dream and empower them to participate in the building of a better world. And I congratulate New Acropolis to have taken this initiative as a tribute to Gandhiji’s Legacy.
I am delighted that New Acropolis India, is hosting an important conference on Empowering Real Change…In order to accomplish such a transformation and bring about a holistic perspective, we need a new kind of leadership emerging from grass roots level and based on the principle of selfless service.
I wish New Acropolis all success in rekindling The Mahatma's beliefs among all of us.
