5TH OCT 2018

Shri. Rahul Karad

Prof Rahul Karad came to the dais and warmly welcomed everyone present there. Then he spoke about the last few days of the event and how, though his father has been working on the dome for the last decade, the idea for it or rather for what the dome represents must have been with him since his childhood all those years back when he first read the teachings of Swami Vivekananda. He spoke of how his father had a hand in guiding him towards the setting up of the first institute in India to impart political knowledge to aspirants who wish to take a role in India's political system. He then expressed admiration for his father setting up the first World Peace Library along with informing the audience of the numerous initiatives taken by MIT for the upliftment of women, for the unity of teachers and many more. He then call Shri. Sushil Kumar Shinde's attention to the front few rows where the dignitaries who had partaken in the World Council were sitting and informed them of the important role they played. He then reiterated the core reasoning behind the dome, behind its architecture and behind the numerous sculptures of great men that lined the walls. He concluded by saying this venue has just seen the first of many just World Peace parliaments.

Rev. Prof. Dr. Vishwanath Karad


Prof. Dr. V D Karad Sir took to the stage and humbly began his session by saying that as much as he has been congratulated through these last few days for the design and completion of the Dome, he does not really feel that he has had that much to do with it. He may have conceptualized a little bit, but then the entire work was done by other people and some of them have spent most of the last decade doing so. Prof. Dr. Karad Sir  thanked everyone present for making the event the success it became and by stating the reasons for his calling the World Peace parliament and why he would not hesitate to do so again. He says that the world needs to forego the chaos and anarchy it is heading into so as to be finally able to usher in the Golden age of man. Saying so he called upon the artisans who had worked on the dome to have them felicitated by none other than Shri. Sushil Kumar Shinde himself.
