The young artists told IANS that they had poured their hearts out to project a united India that would be free of corruption and pollution.

“We want to see our country reach higher levels of growth and rank among front runners in the comity of nations, a vibrant democracy full of hopes, treading on the path Gandhiji showed us.”

Pravin Agarwal, a key promoter of the project, said: The card would be on public display at Mahatma Gandhi Park near his statue”.
