BIS # 3670 VISITING AHMADABAD, THE CITY OF KNOWLEDGE


by BIS correspondent 

AHMADABAD, SEPTEMBER 6, 2013: The community of Don Bosco Kapadvanj along with the aspirants went on one-day educational tour to the city of Ahmadabad on 4th September 2013.

The whole community set off in the morning after invoking the protection of our Blessed Virgin Mary. They visited the place where the father of our nation, Mahatma Gandhi spent a large part of his life. On reaching Gandhi ashram, the aspirants were taken to the exhibition-hall where various articles and letters of Mahatma Gandhi were displayed. Thereafter they visited the room that Mahatma Gandhi occupied.

A lady working with the 'Charakha' gave a brief talk on Mahatma Gandhi's work in the ashram. After looking at the pictures, articles and the room of Mahatma Gandhi, one of the aspirants exclaimed, "Coming here was like meeting Mahatma himself!"

After the Ashram the journey continued towards Science city. The aspirants visited the planet and space sections. They were taken up with the things that were displayed and exhibited. They also watched a 3D movie for 60 minutes. The visit to the Science city was really beneficial to all. For some it cleared their doubts and for some it created more doubts with questions like: 'How is all this possible?' Or 'How was this universe created?'

Thereafter the group left for the Kankaria River Front where the aspirants enjoyed themselves by taking a ride on the toy-train that has been running since the 1960's. It was really a wonderful experience.

The visit to Ahmadabad really enriched the aspirants and increased their knowledge about the universe and how things came into being.
