PM Modi Proposes “Einstein Challenge” In Tribute To Mahatma Gandhi
Mahatma Gandhi envisioned Indian nationalism as one that was never narrow or exclusive but one that worked for the service of humanity, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has written in an opinion piece in The New York Times on Gandhi Jayanti.
Quoting Albert Einstein, PM Modi proposed the “Einstein Challenge” to ensure that ideals of the Mahatma are remembered by future generations.
“As a tribute to Gandhi, I propose what I call the Einstein Challenge… How do we ensure the ideals of Gandhi are remembered by future generations? I invite thinkers, entrepreneurs and tech leaders to be at the forefront of spreading Gandhi’s ideas through innovation,” PM Modi writes in the 931-word piece titled “Why India and the World Need Gandhi”.
PM Modi, in his article, says Gandhi had the unique ability to become a bridge between some of the greatest contradictions in human society.
“Who else could have created a mass agitation through a pinch of salt,” the Prime Minister writes, referring to the Dandi March in 1930.
PM Modi says Gandhi offers solutions to every problem. “In Gandhi, we have the best teacher to guide us,”.
