    The third national convention of Dakshinayan Abhiyan was recently held in Wardha and Nagpur on 29 and 30 January 2018. The Dakshinayan Abhiyan is a movement launched by Padma Shri Ganesh Devy, a scholar, linguist, and an activist. According to Devy, it is larger than a literary festival. The convention, SAMAS-2018, kicked off on 29 January 2018 in Sewagram, Wardha, and culminated in Deekshabhoomi, Nagpur, the next day. Prakash Yashwant Ambedkar, the grandson of Dr B R Ambedkar, and Rajmohan Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, addressed the gathering.
