A fitting tribute was paid to him with the message “non-violence is the weapon of the strong”, highlighting Gandhiji’s quest for peace and unity using the weapon Ahimsa. The various dances captured a few of the principles by which Gandhiji lived. Further, the dignitaries paid homage by garlanding the portrait of Gandhiji.

The chief guest for the day, Sr. Juliana Furtado, in her message, appreciated and applauded the fitting tribute paid to the two noble personalities. She encouraged the students to inculcate the values of these two personalities. The winners of the competitions conducted on the occasion were felicitated. Shaan and Atharv delivered the vote of thanks while Austin and Shreya emceed the programme, which ended with the singing of the National Anthem.
