Gandhian Modern Eco-village, Village Swaraj, Pilot Project, Odisha

We are profoundly grateful to H.H. Swami Tejomayanandaji, former worldwide Head of Chinmoy Mission for his very valuable moral support and help for this profoundly noble project. We are also profoundly grateful to Smt. Tara Gandhi Bhattacharya ji, granddaughter of Mahatma Gandhi and Shri C Rajgopalcharya ji, Chairperson of our Save Ganga Movement and former Vice President of Gandhi Smriti and Gandhi Darshan, and to late Dr Smt. V Mohini Giri Ji, daughter-in-law of our former Rashtrapati Late Shri V.V. Giri, former Chairperson of National Women's Commision and Guild of Service for their very valuable moral support and help for this profoundly noble project.

Let us sincerely try to make this project a role model of the Gandhian Village Swaraj for our country as well as for the world at large, with empathy and compassion for the sufferings of the masses, future generations and the dumb and deaf life-world due to the impending catastrophic consequences of the present very grave global environmental crises in general and the crisis of global warming and climate change in particular. Before doing or planning to do any work for the project, let us rationality reflect over whether Mahatma Gandhi would have approved it, and sincerely try not to do or plan to do anything which Mahatma Gandhi would not have approved.

With goodwill, love and prayers 🙏
