To spread the message of communal harmony among the children and youth, a peace march was organised by Thiruvarut Peravai on Monday.
Bishop of Kottar diocese, Peter Remugius who headed the peace march, said that Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had rightly said that the children of today were the leaders of tomorrow. Kanyakumari district’s Thiruvarut Peravai was committed to mould the children and youth of today as prospective leaders of India by instilling in them secular values and policy of tolerance. More than ten thousand school and college students walked the streets of Nagercoil spreading the message of religious and social harmony.
They held placards with messages of peace and harmony. The march, which began at Scott Christian College was flagged off by Peter Remigius along with Boojithaguru Bala Prajapathy Adigalar, the founding father of Thiruvarut Peravai and Swamiji of Ayya Vazhi cult. James R. Daniel, General Secretary, introduced the aim and purpose of the peace march and welcomed the gathering. The valedictory address was delivered by District Revenue Officer S. Palanisamy and Lok Sabha member J Helen Davidson felicitated. S. Natarajan and Mohammed Ali, secretaries of Peravai, R. Arul Kannan, joint secretary co-ordinator, Maria Vincent, the vicar general of Kottar diocese, Maria Dhasan and others participated in the march.
