We had a heartwarming event at Turiya by Dhatu in Mysore, remembering the Mahatma for Gandhi Jayanthi.
We had an exhibition of rare photographs of the mahatma
An exhibition of the foods Gandhi ji recommends in his works on the topics ‘Key to Health’, ‘Moral basis of Vegetarianism’ and ‘Diet and Diet Reforms’:
A cooking demonstration and talk on diet recommended by Baapu
An art competition for kids on the topics of “If we followed in Gandhi’s footsteps”. It was inspiring to see the vision of Gnadhi’s words take shape in the children’s minds and get expression as art!
After two hours of painting, the children and parents enjoyed special millet delicacies like Raagi (Finger Millet) Laddoo, Bajra (Pearl Millet) Laddoo, and Baragu (Proso Millet) Bisi Bele Bath
We had a certificate and prize distribution ceremony to all the kids and winners. Smt. Leelavathi S. Rao, author of the kannada children’s book “Kiriyarige Hiriyara Kathegalu” chaired the event.
We thank all those who joined in these events and helped us remember that “The greatness of the man was his Simplicity”. I hope we all aspire to walk in Gandhi’s footsteps in whatever way we feel most inspired!
