October 2 marks the birth anniversary of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, better known to the world as Mahatma Gandhi and to the land where he was born- India- as the father of the nation. His non-violent struggle for the freedom of his country brought an entire empire down on its knees. His birthday is celebrated in India as Gandhi Jayanti and all over the world as International Day of Non-Violence.
More than his words, his life was his message. This Gandhi Jayanti, let us pay tribute to him by remembering some of his most famous and inspiring quotes that continue to spin a spell on all of us:
Isn’t Mahatma’s message to the world really thought-provoking! Isn’t it as relevant in today’s times as they were then!
If his philosophy and principles are followed in their true spirit, Gandhi continues to walk upon earth, though not in flesh and blood. For as Gandhi himself said, “So long as my faith burns bright as I hope it will even if I stand alone, I shall be alive in the grave and what is more, speaking from it.”
Happy Gandhi Jayanti!
