Mahatma Gandhi's contribution towards bringing peace and non-violence to this world is unparalleled.  His teachings must be promoted to resolve current conflicts, avoid violence, find peaceful solutions and to make our world a better place to live.

To keep the spirit of Gandhi's teachings alive, the India Club of Vancouver, The Thakore Charitable Foundation, and The JS Woodsworth Chair in the Humanities at Simon Fraser University will join hands in celebrating Gandhi Jayanti on October 2nd of this year to foster the principles of truth, justice, human rights and non-violence.

The Garlanding Ceremony will be held on Thursday, October 2nd, 2014 at the bust of Mahatma Gandhi located in the Peace Square on the Burnaby campus (south side level 3 of the Academic Quadrangle) from 6:45pm - 7:30pm.
