Tera Bharat Mahan..

...was the new slogan Mr Rajmohan Gandhi gave to the 4th batch of MCGM engineers.

It was just a coincidence that Mr Gandhi was at the campus, Asia Plateau, of Initiatives of Change, and the 4th batch of the season 2 of the senior executives of Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai were undergoing a training on Ethical Governance at the same time a couple of weeks ago.

So, the batch got an opportunity of having an informal session with him. The participants were thrilled to hear from Mr Rajmohan Gandhi some interesting anecdotes about his grand father, Mahatma Gandhi. Rajmohan was around 12-13 years old when he lost his grandfather in 1948. However he shared those little tidbits he could recall about his childhood.

An interesting question put up by  a participant was, how are the family members of Mahatma Gandhi today carrying out the legacy of him. And the answer was, with tongue in cheek, that Gandhiji was called 'Father of the Nation', and hence, the responsibility of carrying out his legacy falls on the entire nation, and not only his immediate family :-)

Rajmohan's parting advice to the members of MCGM was 'Do your work, and conduct yourselves in such a way that others, outsiders, foreigners tell us - Tera Bharat Mahan'.

I think it is a great thought for all of us.
