BANGALORE: The world organisation of scout movement and world association of girl guide and girl scouts celebrated the World Thinking day and World Brotherhood and Sisterhood day, in the city on Wednesday

Around 400 students and teachers from various schools across Bangalore and a few voluntary scouts gathered at the Shanti Gruha Training camp and took part in ‘renewal of promise’, where the scouts renewed their promise made at the time of joining the scout’s group.

To ensure global impact of guiding, World Thinking Day is celebrated annually on February 22, by all Guides and Girl Scouts in remembrance of founder Robert Baden Powell and his wife Olave Baden-Powell, the First World Chief Guide.

“This is one of the largest uniform movements with a participation of 47 lakh people across India and around 3 lakh people in Karnataka alone. A feeling of oneness, pride and self-confidence should be developed by students through this movement,” said Kondajji Shanmukhappa, state chief commissioner, The Bharat Scouts and Guides, Karnataka.

The theme of this year’s celebration was ‘Save our Planet’ based on ‘United Nation Millennium Development Goal- Environmental Sustainability’ to create awareness about environment. I R  Perumal, principal secretary, Department of Youth Services,  unveiled the Guide Centenary Monument at the Shanti Gruha Training camp.
