Mahatma Gandhi was not just a doyen of political wisdom but embodied the virtues and values of spirituality, environmental conservation and social Justice. His greatness lies in blending them all such values in his political philosophy and roadmap leading to environmental and social equity. This is when he developed the dream of “Gram Swaraj” where he felt a sustainable village will lead to sustainable nation and societies. Gram Swaraj means a village that provides all its needs within its bounds. Our Founder Prof Swaminathan is no less a Gandhian who tirelessly worked towards the downtrodden and marginal farmers. Our aptly named MSSBG and Community Agro biodiversity Centre similarly embodies the virtues of such philosophy of environmental sustenance. I wish the MSSBG and CAbC a great success in achieving their goals while we commemorate the 151th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Let’s promise ourselves to tread the path of sustainable living and equitable society that Gandhi envisioned.
