  • Jain philosophies teach us the importance of non-violence
  • Governor Vajubhai R. Vala in his speech has conveyed the importance of propagating Jain philosophies in the younger generation
  • He also joined Garba dancers who were dancing to the rhythm of the folk music

New Delhi, July 8, 2017: Vajubhai R. Vala, the governor, said that Jainism taught us what the significance of non-violence and sacrifice non-violence is and how it helped to improve India’s rich heritage while talking on Friday at the installation ceremony of Chaturmasa Mangala Kalash at Jain Mutt at Shravanabelagola in Channarayapatra taluk.

The governor gave an instance of Mahatma Gandhi and said that he inculcated non-violence in all his struggle movements as he was highly influenced and impressed by the philosophies of Jainism. He said that there is a great need to incorporate such values belonging to Jainism in today’s younger generation as it will help us continue the culture of non-violence (ahimsa) and truth in India. Ahimsa indicates the absence of physical violence along with the absence of desire to get into any kind of violence. It will help maintain peace in the world.

He added that one of the best art works, the Gomateshwara statue at Shravanabelagola symbolizes the values portrayed by Jainism. The big event of Mahamastakabhisheka which will be organised next year has been gathering support from the rulers since past 1,000 years and the government at present.

According to The Hindu report, the governor also joined the Garba dancers performing to folk tunes as he comes from Gujrat where this dance form was originated. This gesture of the governor earned appreciations from Jain Mutt seer Charukeerti Bhattaraka Swami among others.

"So my decision to say yes to the film came from the director's vision."

Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor was never really keen on exploring horror comedy but the story of 'Bhoot Police' pushed him to try his hand at the genre. The actor said, "It's not a genre that I was looking for, script-wise. When I heard it, when I read it, what worked for me was the camaraderie between the brothers, the friction and the banter between them. So I quite liked the friction, the brotherhood and at the same time the love-hate relationship and the witty tone."
