February 2022

Lucknow, 28 February: Representing 55,000 students from all 18 campuses of City Montessori School, the students of CMS Station Road Campus made a strong appeal to maintain peace and order in the world and stop the Russo-Ukraine War. Under the guidance of CMS Founder Dr Jagdish Gandhi, CMS President Prof. Geeta Gandhi Kingdon, and Principal Mrs Deepali Gautam, the students of the school took out a procession demanding an end to the Russo-Ukraine war. The students called for unity and peace in the whole world with slogans, placards and flags in their hands and called upon the world leaders to do everything possible to immediately stop the war between the two countries in favor of the suffering humanity of Ukraine. The posters and placards being carried by the students in this procession had slogans like, 'Stop War - Have a Heart', 'Stop Attacking Ukraine,' 'Stop Aggression in Ukrain,' etc.

On this occasion, CMS students also interacted with the media persons. Neelansh Singh, a Class XI student of CMS Station Road Campus said that every country should follow the UN Charter for Peace so that there are no wars. Harshit Gupta, a student of Class XI, said, "We, at CMS are taught the Indian ideal of 'Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam,' which means that the whole world is one family. As such, we appeal to world leaders to find a peaceful solution to conflicts, and avoid the horrors of war." Another student, Nikita George said that we all should raise our voices against war or violence. Tooba Khan said that all problems can be solved with cooperation and mutual dialogue, rather than with tanks and cannons. Therefore, all countries should give priority to the ideas of peace and unity and send messages of peace instead of soldiers. On this occasion, the students unanimously appreciated the efforts of the Government of India for safely evacuating Indian students from Ukraine and said that this drive should be further accelerated so that all Indian students can be brought home immediately.
