Celebrate Gandhi Jayanti every day, says essay lauded by PM

Panaji, Sep 25 (IANS) A Class 9 student from Goa, whose prize-winning essay on Swachh Bharat was lauded by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, wants Gandhi Jayanti to be celebrated every day and not just on October 2.

On Sunday, Modi had tweeted congratulations to Ravisha Kudchadkar, a student from Fatima Convent High School in South Goa’s Margao town, while Parrikar followed up with a tweet of his own on Monday.

In her essay, written as part of a ‘Swachh Bharat’ students initiative, Ravisha said that “it will need more than just taking up a broom on Gandhi’s birthday, instead we can use some other techniques”.

“Not just October 2, but every day should be Gandhi Jayanti,” the essay concluded.

Modi had tweeted: “In her prize-winning essay, Ravisha from Goa writes about what should be done for a @swachhbharat. I compliment her for her work.”

Parrikar also lauded Ravisha for her efforts saying: “Congratulations Ravisha. Let your essay be the leading light for all Goans as we move towards a #SwachhGoa.”
