Gandhi relevant to entire world: Walesa

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Jan 29 (UNI) Nobel Laureate Lech Walesa today said the relevance of Mahatma Gandhi was not confined to India or South Africa alone, but the apostle of peace was relevant to the entire world.

"Don't limit Mahatma Gandhi to India and South Africa, but he is relevant throughout the world," he observed while speaking on the first day of the two-day international conference on the Satyagraha Movement, organised by the Congress here.

Calling himself as a disciple of Mahatma Gandhi, Mr Walesa said, "I consider myself as the follower of the Mahatma." The Nobel Laureate felt that the Gandhian philosophy and his legacy could be used to end the divisions prevailing in the world for a lasting peace and to make the globalisation a success.

Stating that the world faced many new challenges, he said the solutions of them could be found in the adoption of Gandhian values and principles.
