The students further engaged themselves in a ruminating session wherein dignitaries from various embassies shared the stage for a panel discussion about World Peace.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Hanif Qureshi said, “It is a pleasure to participate in Transcendence.. which highlights the concept of global harmony and peace. As a student of Anthropology, I feel we live in a world of diverse cultures and in that India has shown the way to embrace and accept the different mosaics of culture as a hallmark of post modernism. My heartiest congratulations to Manav Rachna and the gathering of young college students for enforcing this beautiful concept.”
Addressing the gathering, Dr Prashant Bhalla, said, “Manav Rachna has always stood out for Human Rights. With disruption of peace, it is important that the world moves together and stays together. The mélange of events at Transcendence… is a true reflection of youth power at its best. As messengers of World Peace, the youth can do wonders to make the world a better place. It gives us immense pleasure that Transcendence has welcomed with open arms the youth from various Institutions only to unite them on a common platform with peace as the binding force.”
