International Gandhi Day 2014

We were admitted the honour of having been invited to the Edinburgh Inter Faith Association’s annual lecture and reception at the Edinburgh City Chambers held in conjunction with the UN International Day of Non-Violence and in memory of Gandhi about whose inspiring life and times we were made aware by benefitting from an incredibly informative and edifying lecture by the historian, author and reader at the University of Kent Antony Copley; an adept in India’s modern history and its political and socio-religious developments. We’d like to thank the Edinburgh Inter Faith Association, particularly its adroit and assiduous General Secretary Iain Stewart, for the kind invitation and for the intent to achieve further engagement. And we thank very earnestly the Deputy Lord Provost of the City of Edinburgh, Councillor Deidre Brock; we were truly honoured to have finally met her acquaintance there and hope to meet her again. And thanks to the Afghan Peace Volunteers; a group of activists working to provide essential humanitarian aid to those in the war shaken regions of Afghanistan who joined us that evening over Skype. We look forward to further engagement in the near future.
