MANISHA IDOur last marcher from overseas to join this year’s International Youth Relay Peace March is Manisha Gaur from Indore, India. She also joined the World Conference Against A&H Bombs last year and was the first one to take on the challenge of joining this year’s Peace March. She is a transformational speaker with strong interest in peace and sustainable development. 

Together with Sofia Wolman, the through Peace Marchers and all the local marchers, they will be walking through Okayama and Hiroshima amidst the hot and humid summer until they reach the goal at Hiroshima Peace Park on August 4. We will be posting articles from both Sofia and Manisha in the following days so keep following us. Let us pray and hope for the best as our marchers do their best to complete the march.

Below is Manisha’s first entry. (Featured photo by Akio Hirai)

Dear peace marchers, I am Manisha Gaur from city Indore, state Madhya Pradesh, country India writing to you from a hotel in Kurashiki.

19 July…..the day I was waiting for. I landed in Okayama airport. Najomi, a beautiful lady politician with her family at Okayama airport welcomed me and together talking about peace movement we reach hotel.

Next day morning I was welcomed by a global couple Shabin and his wife. Shabin is from India, studied in Australia, married to a Japanese girl and his wife born in Japan, studied in Australia , married to an Indian boy. Perfect volunteer for peace movement and perfect example of global village.

I enjoyed a great lunch, shopping mall and Korakuen Garden with them. In the evening time we had a dinner and music and singing with team Okayama . We all shared our views in short speeches and the day ends with ” We shall overcome some day” song.

Now I am ready to join the peace march from tomorrow .

I am very exited………walking…..talking….meeting…..joining hands
for peace.

Manisha Gaur
