“The future depends on what you do today” – Mahatma Gandhi

Fifty years is a major milestone for the Mahatma Gandhi Institute which celebrated its fifty years of existence on 03 June 2020.  With the world pandemic due to Covid 19, the celebrations that had been planned could not take place but the confinement period has given us an opportunity to pause, reflect and look back at our fifty-year journey.  

The Mahatma Gandhi Institute was set up as a national body to give formal impetus to the promotion of Indian Culture and traditions.  For the past fifty years, our Institute has been functioning as a temple of education and culture and is today rightly viewed as a meeting point for different cultures, driven by a vision and a mission inspired by Gandhian thoughts, rich in education and social values. 

Since its inception, the Institute has pursued its visions within an environment that has as core values mutual respect, co-operation, honesty, tolerance, trust, integrity, responsibility, loyalty, accountability and objectivity.  Over the decades, the Mahatma Gandhi Institute has achieved most of the goals that were spelt out in its successive Strategic Plans.

As the winds of change settle in, we look back and we can confidently say that we have been true and faithful to the dreams and objectives of our Institute.  We can say with pride that after 50 years of fruitful existence, our Foundation Day is also a moment to look ahead at the challenges that face us within the next normal environment.

The contributions of many people have indeed been crucial on this journey. Today, we pay tribute to our illustrious predecessors, to the Management and staff who have loyally served the Institution over the years.  Some are no longer with us, and on this special occasion, we are remembering them all.

Long live the Mahatma Gandhi Institute!
