Early Times Report
VIJAYPUR, Sept 16: Government Degree College (GDC) Vijaypur, in collaboration with the NSS Unit (KHIDMAT) and the Department of English, organized a meaningful book reading activity centered around Mahatma Gandhi's autobiography, "My Experiments with Truth." This event, held as part of the Gandhi Jayanti Celebrations 2023, sought to honor the birth anniversary of the revered leader and emphasize the values and principles he championed.
Under the flagship banner of Gandhi Jayanti Celebrations 2023, which also encompassed the themes of "Nasha Mukt Bharat" (Addiction-Free India) and "Bhrashtachar Mukt J&K" (Corruption-Free Jammu & Kashmir), the book reading activity aimed to introduce students to the life, principles, philosophy, and thoughts of Mahatma Gandhi. It highlighted Gandhi ji's remarkable contributions to the struggle for India's independence and the holistic approach towards life that he advocated through his autobiography.
The event began with a warm welcome address by Dr. Radhika Rasyal, a Lecturer in the Department of History. Dr. Rasyal introduced the book, "My Experiments with Truth," emphasizing that its sole purpose is to represent Gandhi's experiences and experiments with truth. She encouraged the readers to conduct their own experiments with truth, considering the stories shared by Gandhi as mere illustrations.
The book reading activity saw active participation from NSS volunteers and other college students who displayed great enthusiasm, fervor, and zeal. The primary objective was to instill the habit of reading books, especially those that carry profound life lessons, among college students. A discussion session was also held at the end of the book reading to delve into the main ideas and insights from the autobiography.
The activity received invaluable guidance from Dr. Vandana Gupta, the Principal of GDC Vijaypur, who stressed the significance of organizing such events in today's digital age. Dr. Gupta highlighted Gandhi ji's principles, such as Satyagraha, Non-Violence, and Self-Reliance, as lessons that can guide individuals toward a successful and disciplined life.
Dr. Shittal Sharma, Convenor of NSS, and Dr. Naseem Chowdhary, NSS Program Officer, efficiently coordinated the event. Dr. Attied Khawar Balwan, a lecturer in the Department of English, extended the formal vote of thanks, expressing gratitude to all participants and reinforcing the importance of reading in personal and societal development.
