New Delhi , Oct 1 (ANI): Vice President M. Hamid Ansari inaugurated an exhibition on the life of Mahatma Gandhi in photographs and quotations entitled Mahatma Gandhi- My Life is My Message at a function here today.
The exhibition has been organized by National Gandhi Museum at Rajghat in New Delhi and gives an overview on the life of Mahatma Gandhi in important key dates.

The Vice President congratulated National Gandhi Museum for organizing such an informative and useful exhibition on Mahatma Gandhi and asked them to invite school children to visit to enhance their knowledge of Mahatma Gandhi.
The Chairman of National Gandhi Museum Prof. Bimal Prasad and the Director Varsha Das also addressed the occasion. Many dignitaries were also present on the occasion. (ANI)
