Gujarat's Chief Minister Shri Narendrabhai Modi will perform the ground-breaking ceremony of the Mahatma Mandir here on Monday, June 7, 2010 at 10.30 a.m.

The majestic memorial to Mahatma Gandhi is being built by 'kar sevaks' with symbolic samples of soil and water brought in 50,000 pitchers from 26 nations, all the states in India, from all the 159 towns and 18,000 villages in Gujarat. The project has been undertaken as part of the state's golden jubilee celebration.

A 'time capsule' chronicling the march of the state since its foundation on May 1, 1960 will be lowered into the ground under the site of the Mahatma Mandir. The box, christened 'Kaal Sanduk' of 'Smriti Manjusha' is made of special gauge stainless steel after given proper treatment. The scripts too are written on a special paper mixed with plastic to last a long time.

It will contain audio-visual compact discs prepared by the Government of Gujarat, besides Ravishankar Maharaj's word-by-word speech delivered at the time of Gujarat's Foundation Day on May 1, 1960, the concept of the Mahatma Mandir and the opinion of 'kar sevaks' participating in the construction of Mahatma Mandir.

The time capsule will also carry the resolution passed by Gujarat's present and past Chief Ministers, MPs and MLAs at the unique parliamentary conclave, named 'Swarnim Gujarat Sanasadiya Parishad' held at the State Assembly on January 1, 2010.
