Collecting Messages of Peace from Across Borders

HT Chandigargh Live - 2 September 2005

With their mission to strengthen bonds of peace and harmony between Indo-Pak relations, two American followers of Gandhian values, John Silliphant and Mark Peters, today visited various school and colleges of the city.

The peace messages collected from the students in the form of greetings, posters, letters, drawings from various schools and colleges would be carried to the schools and colleges across the border.

Till now they have gathered tens of thousands of letters from children all over India . According to John and Mark, this is a great exercise for every child to participate in this campaign as once the message reaches critical mass, it will become a historical event.

Explaining about their experience, they said that they have travelled on the bike across tow with many inspiring local hosts and went from school to school, meeting thousands of students and enthusiastic teachers and principals. They were greeted with warm and overflowing hospitality.

The duo visited the students of Moti Ram Arya Senior Secondary School , Sector 27, GMSSS-37 on the Yuvsatta's greentire cycles today. Later they also visited St. Xavier School and GMSSS-16.

Sharing their experience they said, “The response we have received from the people and schools of Chandigarh has been extraordinary as the city lives to its status of peace city.”
