Swadeshi Seminar Series Inaugurated

The Gandhi Centre for Rural Development started a seminar series on Swadeshi and Sustainable Development as part of the Swadeshi Festival.The objective is to generate an awareness among the People about Swadeshi and the Swadeshi Agenda for Development.

The aim of the seminar series is to create an attitude among the people that whatever products that can be produced in the locality should be produced in the locality itself and thereby achieve self sufficiency in each and every village. Development for what,for whom and how are the three major concerns to be answered for initiating any developmental approach to be sustainable and ever lasting.The Swadeshi Development Strategy shown by Mahatma Gandhi is vibrant and potential to create a developmental approach for the people,to the people and by the people.This aspect should become the fundamental principle of our Development Policy and this is the reason for initiating the Swadeshi Seminar Series on Swadeshi and Sustainable Development. The KPCC President Ramesh Chennithala inaugurated the seminar series on 4 April 2012 at Gandhi Bhavan,Trivandrum.The Working Chairman of the Kerala Gandhi Smaraka Nidhi Dr.N.Radhakrishnan presided over the function.
