The Indian diaspora, or the Indians living abroad are known to have very firm associations with their roots. Their respect towards Indian culture and staunch belief in Indian values can be easily observed by the many activities they organize.

Celebrating the Indian heritage and the legacy of father of our nation- Mahatma Gandhi, The India Discovery Centre (IDC), a non-profit organization based in Massachusetts, is organizing an event called “India Heritage Weekend.”

The programme will be a celebration of the centennial of Gandhi’s return to India and will consist of a planned set of activities including movies, music concert, exhibition and a lecture.

Gandhi returned from South Africa in 1915 and launched India’s nonviolent civil disobedience movement that helped gain India’s freedom. He is remembered and respected throughout the globe because, along with being the catalyst for the liberation of his own people, he also helped South Africa and many other African and Asian nations to liberate from the British Raj.

Adding to the highlights of the programme, the IDC also plans to conduct a national level essay competition. The contest will be open to all school and college students below twenty years of age. The topic is “Gandhi’s message and its influence on the world.” There will be cash prizes for the winners.

The deadline for submission of essays will be the 30th of September 2015. The results will be announced in the second week of October.
