Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika desires to intensify the relationship between the island of Bali with the people of India due to the extensive similarities shared between the Island’s Hindu majority and the people of India.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Pastika said: “The many strengths of India are extraordinary. They have a population of nearly 1.3 billion, and a fast developing economy and technology that are quite fantastic.”

The Governor’s comments were made at the launch of the book celebrating Mahatma Ghandhi held in Denpasar on Thursday, November 28, 2013.

Pastika put forth that Bali and India have extensive and intensive connections. Both have majority Hindu populations with the Hindu faith originating in India. In this regard, he said, the roots of Balinese culture can be found in India.

Looking to the future, Pastika is suggesting that benefits would would be derived by sending Balinese children to pursue their educations in India. “What’s more," added Pastika,  "the Ambassador of India has said he wants to the visit the Bali Mandara High School because of his interest in seeing how our poorest children are managing to excel academicallyl."

The SMA Bali Mandara located in Kubutambahan, Buleleng north Bali, has four students who after completely only two years of study have been accepted for tertiary schooling by the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), and universities in Norway, England and the Netherlands. Moreover, eight other students from the school are preparing to study in the U.S.A. on scholarships.

Pastika said: “This occasion can provide an excellent momentum, especially as the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi is being celebrated in Bali. Everyone is familiar with the teachings of Gandhi that are very relevant to making our province progressive, safe, secure, prosperous and self-sustaining.”

The Indian Ambassador to Indonesia Gurjit Singh stated his appreciation and thanks to the Governor for attending the book launching.

The Ambassador said the Gandhi is a symbol of pride for the people of India and that the philosophies of Gandhi continue to serve as an inspiration to the people of the world.

During the book launching, Governor Pastika was moved to note that an historical photograph of Gandh on displayi showed him wearing a “capil” a traditional hat worn by farmers in Bali. The Governor explained to the Ambassadors that he continues to wear such a hat when he visits remote villages and then presented  the Ambassador and the author of the book, Pascal Alan Nazareth, with a photograph and a capil.

The book by retired diplomat Pascal Alan Nazareth “Gandhi's Outstanding Leadership” has been translated into Indonesian by Dr. I Gede Suartana under the title “Keagungan Kepemimpinan Gandhi.
