Mahatma Gandhi Remembered At University Of New South Wales

07 Sep 2010


A bronze sculpture of Mahatma Gandhi has been unveiled on the Library lawn of University of New South Wales (UNSW) campus quoting the close links between India and UNSW.

The Consul-General of India in Sydney, Mr. Amit Dasgupta, who presented the gift in October during the height of the student crisis, acknowledged the work being done by UNSW in maintaining close relations with the Indian community and providing a safe environment for Indian students.

Mr. Dasgupta, the Vice-Chancellor Fred Hilmer and the Treasurer of NSW Eric Roozendaal unveiled the sculpture in front of other prominent members of the University, Indian and broader communities. Mr. Dasgupta said that education and globalization are both key in spreading messages against violence.

"Gandhi was born in India, but he belongs to each and every one of you," said Mr. Dasgupta, who spoke of the leader's message of non-violence.

The Vice-Chancellor noted that the sculpture is in one of the most prominent places at the University - and has already attracted much interest from students. And, the event was held on the 100th anniversary of Wattle Day (September 1). Wattles are usually the first plants to rise from the ashes of bushfires and provide protection for other seedlings.

"Wattle is to be a lasting symbol of student safety at UNSW," says the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (International) Jennie Lang, who says that the plant will be grown around campus as a message of goodwill.
