CHENNAI: As many as 3,760 people attempted to create the largest peace symbol formation at MCC School in Chetpet on Sunday.

The mood was upbeat, despite the heat at half past three. Students of neighbouring schools and colleges patiently arranged themselves in rows to create the peace symbol. There were dance and cultural programmes during the day to keep all the young participants engaged, ahead of the attempt.

“I am an alumni of MCC, and I am happy to be back in school after a long time. This is a good initiative to build peace between the two nations (India and China),” said Prince of Arcot Nawab Mohammed Abdul Ali, who was the chief guest.

“On July 26, four vehicles will leave from Chennai to meet the Chinese Ambassador to India in Delhi. There will be many stops along the way, where the team of 16 drivers will collect signatures from other States,” said Raju Ninan, convenor, D Cubed-Dawn to Dusk Drivers, organisers of the event.

“We will be touching Bengaluru, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Delhi. We will be giving the collection of signatures to the Chinese Ambassador to India on August 15. This will show the common man’s aspiration for peace,” added Raju.
