BHUBANESWAR: Gandhian, freedom fighter and director of National Youth Project Dr SN Subba Rao on Wednesday said spirituality is India’s biggest identity in the world.
He was addressing the 97th foundation day of popular Odia daily ‘The Samaja’ and the concluding day of Gopabandhu Jyoti Yatra here.


Rao said trust, service and love can help us protect the unity of India which is known for its amazing diversity. The endeavour should be to create a society free from hunger, violence, corruption and intoxication, he added. Terming diversity as its key character, the Gandhian said India has maintained its sovereign integrity all these years whereas a non-diverse country like Pakistan was split into two in the last 70 years.


Speaking on the occasion, national head of Lok Sevak Mandal and chairman of ‘The Samaja’ Dipak Malviya said the newspaper, which is nearing its 100th year, has been a harbinger of social change by following the ideals of Pandit Gopabandhu Das.


Vice Chancellor of Central University, Koraput Dr Sachidanana Mohanty called upon the young generation to take forward the work of the newspaper. Publisher of the newspaper Niranjan Rath, Editor Bamapada Tripathy and CGM Priyabrata Mohanty also spoke on the occasion.
