Gandhi@151: World Pays Homage to Peace & Non-violence Icon

Years pass by and the world only gets to know what Albert Einstein meant when he said that “generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this Earth” about Mahatma Gandhi. The spontaneous pouring of affections across the world on the 151th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi only affirms that there hasn’t been another like him to walk upon the Earth after his departure to the heavenly abode. 
 Gandhi Jayanti is celebrated every year on 2nd october for commemorating the birth anniversary of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, popularly known as Mahatma Gandhi or Bapuji. He is also the ‘Father of the Nation’. Globally, this day is celebrated as the International Day of Non-Violence as Gandhiji was the preacher of non-violence. 

Born in Porbandar, a small town in Gujarat, Gandhiji is a symbol and true idol for representing peace and truth. He studied law in the U.K and practiced law in South Africa. 

Mahatma Gandhi was one of the most influential and powerful personalities of the 20th century. He played a profound role in the Indian Independence movement against the British. Gandhiji was a pioneer of truth and non-violence. He started the 'Satyagraha' movement for the Indian freedom struggle, and won Independence for India from the British rule. He proved to the world that freedom can be achieved through non-violence. 

For him, means was as important as the end, as he laid much emphasis on the purity of the process of the movements of the Independence of the country.
He followed Hinduism and practiced the same till the end of his life. His ideology for him was above everything, including his own life. His autobiography "My experiments with Truth" describes  his childhood and teenage years, his marriage with Kasturba at the age of 13, and a sheer dedication for his motherland.  He used non violent methods to fight against oppression, injustice, discrimination, cruelty and other evils. 

India celebrates his birth anniversary as a national holiday. From President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi to all other distinguished dignitaries, including ambassadors of embassies, paid their homage to the great soul of the last century at Raj Ghat, the Samadhi of Mahatma Gandhi in New Delhi.
Mahatma Gandhi's favourite song 'Raghupati Raghava' is customarily sung at all meetings associated with him across the country.
Mahatma’s consistent strive towards unity had spread the message that in a society differences ought not to become divisions. Mahatma continues to inspire leaders across the globe and remains India’s national identity in front of the world.
