Gandhiji’s bust unveiled in German city of Trier

(UNI) A bust of Mahatma Gandhi has been unveiled at the Auguste-Viktoria-Gymansium, one of the oldest schools in the German city of Trier, as part of the 150th birth anniversary celebrations of Mahatma Gandhi.
Ambassador of India to Germany, Mukta Dutta Tomar, who unveiled the bust with Lord Mayor of Trier, Wolfram Leibe last week, highlighted the significance and relevance of the principle of non-violence to achieve peace, tolerance and understanding in the contemporary world.
She reminded about the continuing relevance of Gandhian thoughts on sustainable living and appreciation for natural resources and his teaching that “The earth, the air, the land and the water are not an inheritance from our fore fathers but on loan from our children. So we have to handover to them at least as it was handed over to us.”
