Beijing, Oct 2: Chi on Monday celebrated the 148th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, with the India Embassy in Beijing releasing commemorative postage stamps on the Ramaya. Many Chinese tiols offered flowers to a statue of Gandhi at Beijing’s Chaoyang Park, while school children recited his famous quotes in Mandarin on a nippy overcast day. “Gandhiji looked forward to a day when a free India and a free Chi could cooperate in friendship and brotherhood for their own good and for the benefit of Asia and the World,” Wilson Babu, Charge D’Affaires at the Indian embassy, said. “Leaders of our two countries have been striving to build strong India-Chi relations based on Gandhiji’s ideals of world peace and respect for all human beings.” In Shanghai, the Indian Consulate organised a series of events including a memorial lecture, screening of a documentary film and a painting completion for children of the Indian community.
