October 2 is the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869, in the Porbandar district of Gujarat to Putlibai and Karamchand Gandhi. His birthday is also celebrated as International Day of Non-Violence. Gandhi’s principles of ‘Satyagraha and non-violence’ later led to India’s independence from the British. Thanks to his philosophy, India’s Danka spoke all over the world and his principles inspired people all over the world for civil rights and freedom movement.
From 1920 till independence in 1947, Gandhi was the Supreme Command of the Congress. On 30 January 1948, he was shot dead by a Hindu fanatic named Nathuram Godse. Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India in his address on his death had rightly said, ‘The light has gone out of our lives. The hero of India’s independence and ‘Bapu’ of crores of Indians still shows us the way with his thoughts. You can also remember Mahatma Gandhi by paying homage to the Father of the Nation through his precious words and messages.
- A person is a creature created by his thoughts, he becomes what he thinks.
- If possible with yourself, do not get that work done by others.
- If there is no fasting of mind along with physical fasting, then it can be unfortunate and harmful.
- You can humbly shake the world.
- A word that comes from a pure heart never fails.
He who fears loses.
- It is useless to keep reciting Ramayana if you do not behave like Ram.
- When a person breaks one rule, the rest are automatically broken.
- Always listen to your evil, never listen to your praise.
The day when the power of love will prevail over the love of power, there will be peace in the world.
