Kolkata, Dec 19 (ANI): In a bid to spread awareness about the importance of peace and non-violence and establish a democratic society based on human rights and values, a unique peace rally was organised in Kolkata.
Sanjay Ganguly, the founder director of 'Janasanskriti Theater Group' said that the rally was organised to promote the cause of humanity, peace and non-violence among people.
"This is a walk for humanity because you see that we are surrounded by the culture of violence, the cultural violence outside, what we see, the violence, outside is affecting our mind. So, we are becoming violent inside our homes. So, if you see the domestic violence and the political violence, they are actually connected. So, it's a culture of violence that we need really fight against and culture of violence is being promoted by all political parties," said Ganguly.
