India: Dr Janez Drnovšek, President of the Republic of Slovenia, to attend the conference'Peace, Non-violence and Empowerment – Gandhian Philosophy in 21st Century'
01/26/2007 | press release
President of the Republic Dr Janez Drnovšek will travel to India on Saturday to attend the international conference "Peace, Non-violence and Empowerment – Gandhian Philosophy in 21st Century".
The international conference that will be held on 29 and 30 January in New Delhi is organized by the Indian National Congress to mark the centenary of the Satyagraha movement. The movement was launched by Mahatma Gandhi, Indian leader and combatant for human rights, as a way of peaceful resistance against discrimination and unjust laws. Over the years, it converted from a platform of passive idealism to effective action. To acknowledge the historical contribution made by Gandhi and the values espoused by him, the Indian National Congress has undertaken steps to commemorate the centenary in a befitting manner. It is also an occasion to renew the commitment of the people of India to his noble mission of building a world that is in peace and harmony with itself.....
