Governor Mangubhai Patel said Indian culture is the promoter of eternal knowledge and culture all over the world. The rich tradition of sacrifice and penance of the wise and the munis for the welfare of humanity and their knowledge is the priceless heritage of our culture.
He said Maharishi Gautam’s philosophy of justice says that justice is the only way to reach a decision based on evidence. The philosophy of justice is perhaps the oldest proof of our thought, the pride of scientific thought.
