Silchar, Feb 18: The four day training entitled “Ahimsa ke Raste” held at Sevagram, Wardha, Maharashtra, and participated by 40 persons from across the country concluded on Saturday. The participants were the members and leaders of Congress. Among them were Sanjeev Roy and Palash Tamuly from Assam, secretaries of Assam Pradesh Congress Committee. Sanjeev Roy who is from this town shared his experiences of being a part of the training programme on the essentials of maintaining discipline and order in every sphere of public life. It is also necessary for cadres and candidates working for the oldest tiolist party Congress.

Roy added to say, “To stay and experience the very environment of Sevagram, located in a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere and a bucolic background, enriches the mind of every individual and I have the best of feelings of serving the society and the tion”. Sevagram itself means ‘a village for and of service’. It was the place of Mohandas Gandhi’s ashram and his residence for 12 years from 1936 till he breathed his last. It was in the outskirts of Wardha that Mahatma Gandhi set up his ashram when hardly the population was of 1,000 people.

It was on the land measuring 300 acres doted by his disciple Seth Jamlal Bajaj of Wardha that Mahatma Gandhi gave shape to his dream ashram. Near the temple of peace and tranquillity is a museum where artifacts of India’s freedom struggle are preserved. It is the ashram which is a centre of attraction for all who yearn for a life of solitude, blissful peace, discipline and dedication to public oriented services. Sanjeev Roy admitted a visit to ashram is no doubt like refreshing one’s mind and body and also to gain the art of living and behaving.
