Poster Contest at Unity Houston

Poster Contest at Unity Houston

On Sunday, September 16th, MGL was invited to Unity Houston as part of Mahatma Gandhi Week 2012. Manishbhai taught the students about Mahatma Gandhi and his relevance in society today. The children then participated in the Poster Contest and had the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents as they drew about Peace, Love and Happiness. A special thanks to Ms Sonya Donalson, Director of Youth and Family Ministry at Unity Houston, for inviting MGL and coordinating our visit and to Nina and Neel Wani for their enthusiastic volunteer efforts.

Heroes for Peace

Heroes for Peace

Mahatma Gandhi Library in collaboration with Children's Museum of Houston celebrated Heroes for Peace Day on Sunday, September 30th, 2012. Special thanks to Mandy Peyrani, P.K. McCrary, Janie Speaker, Jayesh Shah, Namita Sutaria, and Manish Wani for their time spent in putting together a wonderful program. The children had a wonderful time making Origami art and participating in the poster/coloring contest. The waterless tattoos were a big hit as children learned about the 3 monkeys and the message "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil." They proudly displayed the 3 monkey tattoos on their face and arms. The Gandhi Darshan exhibit was also earnestly viewed by the children and their parents as they saw pictures of the life and times of Mahatma Gandhi. Heroes for Peace Day once again was a wonderful part of Mahatma Gandhi Week and again gave us the opportunity to promote the values of peace, truth, and non-violence.
