“Be the change that you wish to see in the world”
~ Mahatma Gandhi ~
Mahatma Gandhi was a towering figure in history whose philosophy of non-violence, passion for equality and independence and socio-political intelligence continues to be an inspiration for many leaders.
In 2015, Sampad ran the third international writing competition in its “Inspired By…” series which provided an opportunity for aspiring writers from across the globe to connect with this immensely philosophical and influential thinker and leader, and express their personal responses through creative writing.
Our main motivations for delivering Inspired by Gandhi 2015 were to
- Encourage interest in Gandhi’s life and philosophy
- Motivate people of all ages (8 upwards) to express themselves through creative writing
- Inform new generations about this influential thinker
