Poster Exhibition on Mahatma Gandhi
Bangladesh International Mediation Society is committed to the cause of promoting peace through Mediation.
Mahatma Gandhi is perhaps the greatest mediator of all times! He wrote in his autobiography “…a large part of my time during the 20 years of my practice as a lawyer was occupied in bringing about private compromises of hundreds of cases. I lost nothing thereby, not even money, certainly not my soul.” He conducted mediation long before Mediation became a structured discipline and long before Fisher and Ury developed the Four Prescriptions of Principled Negotiation!
Mahatma Gandhi was the most influential leader of mankind during the 20th century. He continues to influence the world even though more than 70 years have passed since his martyrdom. Gandhiji’s contribution to world peace is unparalleled. Hence BIMS, which is committed to the cause of Peace, decided to put up a Poster Exhibition when the world is celebrating his 150th year of birth.
The picture exhibition will be held at Nalini Bhattashali Conference Hall, Bangladesh National Museum, Dhaka for 3 days from the 9th to the 11th December 2018, from 10.30 AM to 5.30 PM. Mr. Vijay V Bharatiya, who is the Coordinator of South Asia Peace Association (SAPA) has kindly consented to inaugurate the exhibition. The inaugural function will be held at Nalini Bhattashali Conference Hall, Bangladesh National Museum, Dhaka at 10 AM on the 9th December 2018. The admission is free and open to all.
BIMS welcomes and encourages all the people, particularly students, teachers and youth to visit the exhibition and to benefit by viewing the posters. Seeing and reading the posters that will be displayed in the exhibition will give an insight into a great movement that took place in South Asia, which had far reaching impact on the entire world.
The peaceful and nonviolent struggle that Mahatma Gandhi led successfully has no parallel in human history. That is why, the great Physicist and Noble Laurette – Albert Einstein wrote to Mahatma Gandhi in 1931, “You have shown through your work, that it is possible to succeed without violence even with those who have not discarded the method of violence.” And when Gandhiji passed away in 1948, Einstein said, “Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth”. Seeing is believing. You can see in this exhibition what one cannot easily believe! Yes, viewing this exhibition is like witnessing a miracle.
Welcome to witness the miracle of peace!
