According to Mr. Pandeys words Gandhis ideas filled with the brightness of sunrays the life of people in the world of violence and conflicts. Those encouraged them, gave hope and help to bring back their trust.

Mahatma Gandhi wishes to see peace among all nations and civilizations. I want to live in a house with all the windows and doors open, and the cultural winds of various countries and people fly through this house, but I do not accept the obsession by any of them,-said R. Pandey.
