Dear Mahatma Gandhi Center,

One hundred and fifty years ago, the leader Mahatma Gandhi was born.  During this year of celebration, I offer my heartfelt congratulations to the Mahatma Gandhi Center and to the India Association of St. Louis.

Gandhi’s commitment to non-violence is a shining example to all who are struggling for freedom and basic human rights.  In this spirit, the Gandhi Center and the India Association stand as a testament to tradition, embracing the wisdom of our ancestors are remembering the voices of our past.

Indian Americans and the India Association are truly a benefit to our region, adding to the rich family culture of Missouri and exemplifying the values of love, respect and concern for one another.  It is my honor to represent such an engaged and vibrant community.

Congratulations to the Mahatma Gandhi Center and the India Association of St. Louis on the 150th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth.


Greeting from the Governor’s Office!

I am excited to congratulate the Mahatma Gandhi Cultural Center and guests on celebrating Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birthday anniversary.

Since the Mahatma Gandhi Cultural and Educational Center was inaugurated in 1990, it has been run by volunteers serving as the board of directors.  The center has served as a platform for local and general elections, as well as cultural and educational activities.  You provide an important place for individuals to connect and share their heritage with others.  Through the efforts of board members and volunteers, the center has had numerous accomplishments to be proud of over its existence, and continues to be actively engaged in worthwhile endeavors throughout the community.

We hope your celebration will be wonderful time of fellowship as guests, volunteers, and members of the Mahatma Gandhi Cultural Center gather to reflect on the rich history of the center, and celebrate the birth, and life, of Mahatma Gandhi.

Teresa and I wish a blessed time as community members and guests gather in celebration.


Dear Friends:

It gives me great pleasure to offer my congratulations on this weekend’s celebration and events commemorating the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi.

Mahatma Gandhi is a revered figure not only in India, but across the world and in the United States, for the commitment to social justice and his conviction the non-violent protest is the only means by which lasting change can be achieved.  On this sesquicentennial anniversary of his birth, let us all draw continued inspiration from his belief that the future depends on what we do today, and that the best way to find oneself is to lost oneself in the service of others.

Thank you for this weekend of tribute and remembrance for one history’s most important and inspirational political and spiritual leaders, and best wished on all your future endeavors.

Warmest regards,
