Celebration of Sadbhavna Diwas

Sadbhavana Diwas is celebrated at Roorkee Institute of Technology, through National Service Scheme Unit to commemorate the birth anniversary of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on 20th August, 2022 at 12:30 pm. Being the youngest Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi’s thought process was modern and different from others.

This day is observed as ‘Sadbhavana Diwas’ or Harmony Day’ with an objective to encourage national integration, peace, affection, and communal harmony among the Indian people of all religions and languages. It promotes the unity in diversity and feeling of oneness amongst people to a great level. It brings a type of racial and cultural similarity among people of different community. Communal harmony is a prerequisite for a country like India, with its diverse population and cultures. Communal harmony ensures that every religion gets equal treatment, and tolerance builds amongst citizens.

Director Prof. (Dr.) Parag Jain focused on the importance of harmony, discipline and peace in today’s world and how the present generation can make use of these values in their lives.

“I take this solemn pledge that I will work for the emotional oneness and harmony of all the people of India regardless of caste, Creed, religion, region or language. I further pledge that I shall resolve all differences among us through dialogue and constitutional means without resorting to violence”.
