Call for Enforceable International Law and
empowerment of International Court of Justice
Drawing inspiration from Victor Hugo who said "There is one
thing stronger than all the armies of the world and that is 'An
Idea' whose time has come" Dr Gandhi came up with the thought
that “Enforceable International Law and Empowering the
International Court of Justice is 'The Idea' whose time has
come" in order to safeguard the future of the world's two
billion children and generations yet-to-be-born. He upholds that
empowering the International Court of Justice is imperative to
decide disputes legally and without violence and for interpretation of international
law. This will obviate the need for violent conflict because
international disputes would be resolved peacefully and legally
by the impartial court, and large resources spent on defense and
defense-preparedness can be utilized for the welfare of
humanity. In the present situation this can be done by
empowering the International Court of Justice and by
strengthening the United Nations system and removing the veto
International Conferences of
Chief Justices of the World
Chief Justices of the World
gathered at CMS from 8 to 16 December 2019
Dr Gandhi pioneered
the idea of organizing Annual International Conferences of Chief
Justices of the World and World Judiciary Summits for promoting
the philosophy of Enforceable International Law and empowering
the International Court of Justice in order to safeguard the
future of world's two billion children and generations
yet-to-be-born. The highlight of the campaign if the annual
World Judiciary Summits and the International Conferences of
Chief Justices of the World in which 1222 Hon’ble Chief Justices,
Judges and Heads of States from 133 countries of the world have participated
since 2001. The 20th Annual Conference, the World
Judiciary Summit will be held from 6 to 12 November 2019 at CMS Kanpur Road Campus, Lucknow. For more

Guardian of world's two billion children
Dr Gandhi, the founder of CMS, Guinness World record holder
the largest city school in the world, views himself as a
self-appointed guardian of the rights and welfare of world's two
billion children and of generations yet-to-be-born, therefore Dr
Gandhi has been striving relentlessly to persuade the world's
political leaders and heads of national judiciaries to take up
the children's cause and to ensure that their right to inherit a
safe and healthy future is protected.
Dosti Karein" (ADK) (Come, let us be friends!)
In 2002, Dr Gandhi conceived and implemented the idea of
Indo-Pak Children's Friendship Club. Named "Aao Dosti Karein"
(come, let us be friends), the ADK Club facilitated letter
exchanges between thousands of CMS students with their Pakistani
counterparts and later led to exchange of visits between CMS
students and students from many Pakistani schools. The objective of ADK Club is to promote and infuse
in their hearts and minds the idea of unity & peace between
India and Pakistan and implant the idea of world unity and world
peace in the children of both the countries.
Children's World Parliament
Dr Gandhi conceived the idea of holding sessions of 'Children's World
Parliament' where children playact as world leaders and discuss
global problems and solutions preparing them right from
childhood to be responsible world's statesmen. The idea is to
let the children imagine themselves as the citizens of the
world, addressing humanity as one family. At CMS, the World
Parliament Session is an integral part of every school event.
Thus every year nearly one hundred World Parliament Session are
held in which our 10,000 students participate.
World Citizen Dress
Dr Gandhi popularized the concept of 'World Citizen's Dress'
which was first developed by Professor Mangesh Teli of Bombay
University. Embossed on the World Citizen's Dress are the
symbols of all major religions and the national flags of all
countries. The dress is the central focus of the spectacular
World Peace Prayer Ceremony that is an integral part of every
CMS event. The entire presentation aims to inspire young
children to view themselves as World Citizens responsible for
the welfare for all beings in the world.
The World Citizen's Dress is a symbolic synthesis of the
cultural diversity of human beings. It is
white in colour, which is a universal colour for peace and
purity. The Dress has the holy symbols of all major religions of
the world around the neckline. The flags of all the member
countries of the United Nations are also embossed on the Dress,
representing the international community and symbolizing the
brotherhood of mankind.
The Dress is used in the World Peace Prayer Ceremony (WPPC)
which forms an integral part of all CMS functions, to make
children realize that we are all members of one global family.
The national flags of all the countries are also used in the
WPPC when peace prayers are rendered for each country
individually by name, by the participating students each
representing a difference country.
Department to teach world unity
A separate "World Unity Education Department" (WUED)
has been established. This department is working to promote
world unity through manifold activities. It is also responsible
for organizing the International Conference of Chief Justices of
the World, the Sunday Seminars as well as the Indo-Pak
Children's Friendships Club among others.
Peace Poles are also a project of the World Peace Prayer Society
(WPPS) and more than 200,000 such monuments to peace have been
planted in 160 countries across the globe, under the aegis of
Erected with the objective of inspiring thoughts of peace and
unity, Peace Poles are obelisks inscribed with the prayer "May
Peace Prevail on Earth", on all four sides. More than half a
dozen Peace Poles dot various CMS Branch campuses in different
parts of the city of Lucknow.
Many people have compared Peace Poles to acupuncture pins on the
acupressure points of the globe. Some of these Peace Poles have
been planted by eminent personalities like the His Holiness The Dalai Lama,
Mother Teresa and the Pope.
Peace Poles have been planted at Aliganj, Chowk, Gomti Nagar,
Kanpur Road and Station Road Branches of CMS. They were planted
by prominent personalities of India with much public awareness
built around each planting.
Every Sunday, a World Peace Satsang (denominational religious
gathering) is held at CMS Gomti Nagar Branch in the morning and
at CMS Station Road Branch in the evening where spiritual heads
and religious leaders address people on the need for world peace
and how to work for realizing the same. Some of the most famous
names in India have addressed the public from the CMS portals.
These include Sri Sri Ravishankar and Dada Vaswani among others.
Eminent intellectuals and social workers also address the World
Peace Satsangs often while well known musicians and singers
regularly sing peace songs and devotional hymns at these
gatherings. These World Peace Satsangs are very well attended
and regularly covered by the media.
