October 2nd - Gandhi JayanthiWe celebrate 2nd October of every year as Gandhi Jayanthi, for he, the father of our nation was born on this day years ago(1869). He was a leader who followed non-violence as the method to fight against his enemies. He was a lawyer by profession, but he played a leading role in India getting independence. We all still remember him and respect him for the services rendered by him for our nation. He was a role model, who was never behind money or power, he just wanted freedom for his nation. For that he was not even ready to shed any blood of foreigners, Ahimsa was his rule. Yes, He is right, none of us have the right to take anyone's life for any reason as we are not creators. He was known as Bapuji by his followers.
Today is declared as a National holiday by our government as a respect towards him.
