We would ensure that young children are made aware about the good teachings of the father of our nation and thereby inculcating good morals, values, manners, ethics, self-confidenceetc to them in their life. We wish to ensure that Mahatma Gandhiji is viewed as a role model by the future young generation of India and that we shall be very happy even if we are able to bring about a change in 5% of the young generation all across India. We intend to initially commence this exhibition in Chennai and then conduct it all over the State of Tamil Nadu and subsequently take it forward all over the country in a phased manner.
