He described Gujarat as the "Land of the Legends" that not only rejuvenates one spiritually but also kindles a powerful sense of patriotism and nationalism. He said such visits further strengthen beliefs that good will always prevail over darkness.

"By showing the world the power of truth and non-violence as weapons of struggle against injustice, Gandhiji left an ever-lasting imprint on humanity. I urge everyone, especially the younger generation, to visit this place and take inspiration from the Mahatma's life and ideals," he said referring to his Porbandar visit.

Naidu said India is replete with many such places that hold great historical and spiritual significance. Stressing the need to make the youth aware of such places, he suggested educational institutions to take students to such places.
