A Special Talk was organized on the topic “Truth, Non-Violence and Survodaya” on the occasion of celebrating birth day of Mahatma Gandhiji and Sri Lalbahadur Shastri. Dr RV Vastrad, Retired Professor of Economics, was invited as a speaker. He spoke on the essential aspects of truth and non-violence. One should adhere to qualities like love, tolerance, sacrifice, courage etc to realize truth and non-violence. People should develop the courage to prevent the misuse of power by the vested interests in the society. Craze towards economic and political power without the observance of ethics violets the principles of participatory democracy. To promote decentralization it is necessary to bring about co-ordination between political and economic autonomy. The direct participation of people changes the whole scenario of the country. Dr G Rajashekhar, Principal, presided over the function. Sri Siddaram G Mulaje, IQAC Coordinator, executed the programme.
