Street Play Conducted on Gandhi Ji’s Life

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was an eminent freedom activist and an influential political leader who played a dominant role in India's struggle for independence. Gandhi is known by different names, such as Mahatma (a great soul), Bapuji (endearment for father in Gujarati) and Father of the Nation. Every year, his birthday is celebrated as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday in India, and also observed as the International Day of Nonviolence.
Mahatma Gandhi, as he is most commonly referred to, was instrumental in liberating India from the clutches of the British. With his unusual yet powerful political tools of Satyagraha and non-violence, he inspired several other political leaders all over the world including the likes of Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr and Aung San Suu Kyi. Gandhi, apart from helping India triumph in its fight for independence against the English, also led a simple and righteous life, for which he is often revered. Gandhi's early life was pretty much ordinary, and he became a great man during the course of his life. This is one of the main reasons why Gandhi is followed by millions, for he proved that one can become a great soul during the course of one’s life, should they possess the will to do so. 

To mark the celebration of 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the NSS Wing of JIMS Kalkaji presented a street play in the Kalkaji locality on 11th October 2019 depicting Gandhiji’s life. A group of 24 students were involved in play. They were able to gather substantial audience for the play and it was quite a success.

Awareness Rally on Gandhian Ideologies

In a gentle way, u can shake the world- Mahatma Gandhi
Mahatma Gandhi is revered the world over as one of history’s most transformative and inspirational figures. Throughout his life in South Africa and India, Gandhi was a fearless campaigner for the rights and dignity of all people, whose constant and unwavering promotion of non-violence as a tool to win over hearts and minds has forever left its mark on the world. However, the man known today for his calm, courage and compassion in the face of oppression was not always comfortable before the crowds.
Over time, Gandhi managed not only to overcome his fears, but to turn them to his advantage. His unease at speaking made him an excellent listener, whose humility and empathy allowed him to channel the dreams and aspirations of the masses. His hesitancy with words taught him the power of saying more with less — and today, these words, inflected with the heart and wisdom that have made him an international icon, continue to inspire countless millions across the globe.
Though he is not around us anymore, yet his thoughts and ideologies inspire many around the globe as they continue to be as relevant today as they were around a century ago. Keeping the relevance of his ideologies in mind, the NSS club of JIMS Kalkaji conducted an awareness rally on 30th Sept 2019in the Kalkaji locality to awaken the people to Gandhian thoughts. The students shouted slogans and displayed posters exhibit Gandhian philosophies and ideas. The event turned out to be a great success and all the members contributed their best.

Slogan Writing Competition

This year, we as proud citizen of India, are celebrating Gandhiji’s 150th birth anniversary. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, (2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was an Indian lawyer, anti-colonial nationalist, and political ethicist who employed nonviolent resistance to lead the successful campaign for India's independence from British Rule, and in turn inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. He was the man who with his values and principles got all the citizens of India freed from the British rule. It is indeed a great honour for all of us to be celebrating this auspicious occasion.
To mark this event, the NSS Club of JIMS Kalkaji organized a slogan writing competition. The theme for the event was ‘Gandhian Ideologies and Philosophies’. The activity was conducted on 27th September 2019 in all the classes of the campus. Students participated enthusiastically in the competition. It turned out to be a great success.

Competition on Gandhian Ideologies

Gandhian philosophy is certainly a universal and timeless philosophy, despite the fact that on the more superficial level it is set in the Indian social contexts. It is also compatible with the view that human kind is undergoing gradual moral evolution. It is a double-edged weapon whose objective is to transform the individual and society simultaneously, in accordance with the principles of truth and non-violence. Gandhi's philosophy also has much in common with several western philosophies which uphold the ideal of a more just and equitable society.

For Gandhi, the process of change was very important which must be ethical, nonviolent and democratic giving rights to all minorities. Once we realize this, we realize the essence of Gandhism and realize that it would be wrong to premise that Gandhism is dead in the world. Gandhism today is alive and active. In fact, today there is hardly any country in the world where some activities are not going on along Gandhian lines. There are very few countries in the world where something or the other is not being done, achieved or organized in the name of Gandhi. In short, there is a global non-violent awakening and awareness after Gandhi. The name of Mahatma Gandhi transcends the bounds of race, religion and nation-states, and has emerged as the prophetic voice of the twenty-first century.
Given the relevance of Gandhian ideology in the present day and age, it is important that we teach our generation about his thought and philosophies. Therefore, as part of an NSS activity, JIMS Kalkaji organized classroom lectures on Gandhian ideologies. These lectures focused on philosophies like Non-violence, Satyagraha, Trusteeship, Sarvodaya and Swadeshi. The lectures were conducted on 27th September 2019 in all classes. Students actively participated and learnt substantially through these lectures. 

Competition on Gandhian Ideologies

Gandhism is a body of ideas that describes the inspiration, vision and the life work of Mohandas Gandhi. It is particularly associated with his contributions to the idea of nonviolent resistance, sometimes also called civil resistance. Gandhian philosophy is a double-edged weapon. Its objective is to transform the individual and society simultaneously, in accordance with the principles of truth and nonviolence. Thus, truth and non-violence are the two pillars of Gandhism.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, also known as the Father of Nation, played a stellar role in India's freedom struggle. Thinker, statesman and nationalist leader, Mahatma Gandhi not only led his own country to independence but also influenced political activists of many persuasions throughout the world with his methods and philosophy of nonviolent confrontation, or civil disobedience. If he had wanted, Gandhi could have lived a very comfortable life as a lawyer. Instead he devoted it to prayer, fasting and meditation.
The Gandhian philosophies of truth, non-violence, swadeshi, sarvodaya and trusteeship are completely relevant and applicable in the present-day dog-eat-dog world. With this view in mind, the NSS Club of JIMS Kalkaji organized a competition on Gandhian Ideologies on 26th Sept 2019 wherein the students shared their views on the present-day applicability of the Gandhian Ideologies through an article. The competition was a great success as students participated enthusiastically.

 

Poster Making Competition on the topic “Impact of Fast Food and Packaged Food Items on Health”
“Let food be thy medicine, the medicine shall be thy food.”


Good eating habits are the key in maintaining and improving our health regardless of age, gender, occupation, or location. Of course, staying active plays an important role in our life, but eating the wrong kind or quantity of food could jeopardize our health. Therefore, having good eating habits are far more important than just staying active to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The best eating habits that you can develop are the ones that allow you to enjoy what you eat, and at the same time provide you with a balanced diet and good variety of wholesome food.
Nowadays, people are suffering from many serious health problems such as heart attack, obesity, anorexia and so on. All these diseases are a result of imbalance in diet. However, the rapid rise of health problems has made the public more concerned about their health. As a result, the government and private sectors have come up with multiple ways to create awareness on the importance of proper eating habits to overcome health problems.
In the view of all these problem NSS Wing of JIMS Kalkaji organised a poster making competition on the topic ‘Impact of Fast Food and Packaged Food Items on Health’ on 25th September 2019.

If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.” For centuries, the greatest thinkers have suggested the same thing: Happiness is found in helping others.

Painting Competition on 6th August 2019

In a condolence message sent by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose to Mahatma Gandhi on the sad demise of Kasturba Gandhi he wrote “...........Nobody would be happier than ourselves if by any chance our countrymen at home should succeed in liberating themselves through their own efforts or by any chance, the British Government accepts your `Quit India' resolution and gives effect to it. We are, however proceeding on the assumption that neither of the above is possible and that a struggle is inevitable. Father of our Nation, in this holy war for India's liberation, we ask for your blessings and good wishes.” The above message proves Netaji’s reverence and warm feelings towards Gandhiji whom he addressed as ‘The Father of the Nation'.

There were few kids who were hospitalized too for being anemic and due to other medical problems. Ms. Anu was the coordinator over there and she told us about the kids, their life, how they had been rescued, from where they are getting donations etc. As a part of social activity, we spared worthwhile time with the kids and they soon mingled with us.
