Delivering his acceptance speech, author, Founder and Managing Trustee of Sevalaya, V Muralidharan, stated that, The Bhagavad Gita holds significant relevance in the lives of Mahatma Gandhi, Mahakavi Bharathiyar, and Swami Vivekananda. “In this book, I have articulated my reflections, drawing on the symbolism of Vijaya holding a bow and Kannan, the god of yoga, reflecting right knowledge holding the reins of the sense organs and any action taken with the right knowledge leads to success”. He noted that the book’s cover effectively conveys this concept and expressed gratitude to the media representatives.
