Manila: President Ram Nath Kovind who is on a five-day visit to the Philippines, unveiled a bust of Mahatma Gandhi at the Centre of Peace Education at Miriam College on Sunday.
“This bust of Mahatma Gandhi is a gift from the people of India to you,” Kovind said during his address on the occasion.
“But the Mahatma belongs to all people, all culture and all societies. May he continue to guide us in our shared journey of peace, harmony and sustainable development of all.”
The President hopes that the students continue to be inspired by Gandhi’s legacy “of being just and ethical in conduct; compassionate and humble in treating fellow human beings; and standing up and championing truth and truth alone, even in most trying times.”
