Follow Mahatma’s footsteps, students told

Prizes presented to winners of contest

The most endearing qualities of Mahatma Gandhi were his insistence to always tell the truth and his disciplined way of life. Students should take a leaf out of his life to lead a virtuous life, said K. Sandhya Rani, Commissioner, School Education, on Wednesday.

She was addressing students drawn from different schools at a prize-distribution function organised by the Andhra Pradesh Gandhi Smarak Nidhi, in collaboration with the School Education Department.

The Smarak Nidhi has been organising a series of activities such as competitions in essay-writing, drawing, singing, elocution and slogan-writing for schoolchildren as part of the 150th birth anniversary celebrations of the Mahatma. The students present were those who had qualified for State-level competitions after winning prizes at the mandal and district-level events.

Ms. Sandhya Rani also gave prizes to the first two district-level winners of all events.

Convenor of Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th Birth Anniversary Celebrations G. Rashmi said mandal-level competitions were organised in June, followed by district-level contests in July.

Gandhi Smarak Nidhi members Y. Ramachandra Rao, B. Sankar Rao and Raavi Sarada were among those present.
