Every year, on 18th, 19th and 20th December the Maharshi Karve Vyakhyanmala takes place. Many eminent speakers working in various walks of life give lectures in three sessions organized in this lecture series. The students attend these lectures in large numbers. Listening to various view points, earning knowledge of different subjects is very crucial for personality development. Eminent speakers like Dr. Raghunath Mashelkar, Dr. Keshav Ginde, Dr. Sudhir Naik gave lectures last year in this lecture series.
This year,Smt. Anuradha Gore, famous Marathi author and mother of martyr Capt. Vinayak Gore gave lecture in the first session of the series on 18th December 2020.
She spoke in depth about the need of supporting the Armed Forces by joining them or by participating in the causes like Operation Sadbhavana saying that it is our duty to stand by our forces because whenever the first strike happens, women suffer the most. She also told stories of many martyrs.
She said that, all girls should know the names of women soldiers like First woman Martyr Kiran Shekhawat and other lady officers like Minty Agarwal, Shrividya Rajan, Gunjan Saxena as the new sources of inspiration because they are as brave as women like Queen of Jhansi.
Later, she told many stories about soldiers and their work. She stated that, work in armed forces gives you very different experiences in a very short span of life. But, the people of India are not told about the kind of work the armed forces do. Thus, the people are not aware about the sacrifices of our soldiers. It should be our mission to hold the hands of our armed forces and make them stronger. It’s not just our mission or duty, but it’s a necessity for our self- protection.
Later she also answered the questions of the students. Nearly, 1400 girls were present for the lecture.
