As a take away message for the students, a skit depicting Gandhiji’s thirst for honesty at a small age of seven years was courageously enacted. Chief guest of the day Jyotsna applauded the students for their stage programme and gave her message about Gandhiji’s quality of practicing what he preached, through a short story which was very appealing.
