Shri Nayapadmasagar Surishwarji quoted, “Today, as we commemorate the 2623rd birth anniversary of Prabhu Mahavir, let us embody the ethos of non-violence in our actions. Reflecting on the diverse culinary offerings and cultural inclusivity, it’s evident that Maharashtra takes pride in its heritage. From Parsi gymkhana to Islamic gymkhana and Catholic gymkhana to Hindu gymkhana, the government’s commitment to fostering harmony through shared experiences is commendable. However, amidst this celebration of diversity, it’s crucial to acknowledge the government’s divine vision and long-term goals. The recent initiatives, including dedicating a plot on Marine Drive for a Jain Gymkhana and establishing the Bhagwan Mahavir University on 25 acres of land, highlight a deeper commitment to nurturing values and traditions. The generous contributions of donors like Motilal Oswal, Sudhir Mehta, and Gautam Adani further underscore the collective effort towards societal welfare and education. As we commemorate Lord Mahavir’s teachings, let us continue to build bridges of understanding and compassion, ensuring a legacy of enlightenment and progress for future generations.”.
