BANGALORE: A seven-day special lecture on Gandhian Values was inaugurated by Usha Bora, founder member of Brahma Vidya Mandir Paunar Wardha at Vishwaneedam International Sarvodaya Center on Sunday. Youth Motivation Camp on Gandian Values — a special function was organised by Karnataka Gandhi Smaraka Nidhi for students and also  witnessed participation from twenty seven school

and colleges.

Inaugurating the function, Usha said, “Youngsters have to lead a simple life and think high. Gandhi  always believed in serving the needy especially the Dalit and underprivileged. Gandhi never valued wealth but unfortunately today the youth are hell bent on making money. It is important that the youth start adopting Gandhian values.” Dr H Sreenivasaiah, President of Karnataka Gandhi Smaraka Nidhi, who was the chief guest of the event said, “Youngsters should use this opportunity to learn and imbibe Gandhian values and try to apply them in their day to day lives and make it  more meaningful and valuable for themselves and others. Government should add teaching of Gandhian Values in our educational system and make it mandatory for students of all classes not just to learn them but to apply them in

their lives.”
