We believe that the march was successful because more people than expected joined it. Definitely, people see the march as an opportunity to pronounce themselves united against crime, to reject any act of violence against women, children, the elderly and animals, and to reject any act that destroys the Mother Earth.
... reject any act that destroys the Mother Earth.
As always, the Ambassador of India, Mandarapu Subbarayudu, was present at the March. This time he accompanied us, and with his presence, he encourages us to follow the life testimony of Mahatma Gandhi, a great promoter of Nonviolence. This year marks 150 years since Ghandi’s birth.
We do not like violence, we believe and live Gandhi’s message of harmony and peace.
For Mandarapu Subbarayudu, being in Lima is like living in India. He considers that the cultural and economic aspects of India and Peru have similarities, such as the taste for cinema, music, Indian food, and the use of traditional medicine. In the way we live our lives, both the inhabitants of Peru and those of India express: “We do not like violence, we believe and live Gandhi’s message of harmony and peace, family values unite us, and we are hospitable to the people who visit our country.”
