 Gandhi jayanti

A man who believed in non-violence. A man who is known as the father of the nation. Yes, these

things refer to Mohandas karamchand Gandhi, the father of nation Mahatma gandhi. Every year on 2nd oct, we show our heartfelt gratitude to the

father of the nation. His life had hurdles, obstacles and discouragement, still he believed in

non-violence. Mahatma Gandhi was born on 2nd October 1869, in porbandar gujarat. It was a

time when India had mostly lost the hope of getting independent. Mahatma Gandhi moved to

Rajkot for his schooling. He got married to Kasturba, when he was just 13. That was a time

when child marriage was common. In the year 1877 he completed his schooling and went to

London for his further studies in the field of law. It was difficult for him to get a job but, finally he

got a job and he was asked to move to South Africa for a year. He stayed in south africa for 20

years, everyone in south africa recognised Gandhi as an civil rights activist. He did many great

works in South Africa and lightened a small hope of their rights. The condition of India was

getting worse, Gopal Krishna gokhale called Gandhi back to India. Gandhi joined the national

congress and became part of the freedom struggle.

He believed in unity and nationalism. He tried to bring unity among the citizens and develop a

feeling of nationalism. One of the major andolan movements by Gandhi was asahyog andolan,

it's also referred to as not cooperation movement. According to Wikipedia, The Non-cooperation

movement was a political campaign launched on 4 September 1920, by Mahatma Gandhi to

have Indians revoke their cooperation from the British government, with the aim of inducing the

British to grant self-government.

In the year 1922, he was jailed for two years, because of andolans. But the unity of the citizens

helped Gandhi to come out of jail. In the year 1923 dandi yatra was started and around 7000

people were arrested. According to WikipediaThe Salt March, also known as the Salt

Satyagraha, Dandi March and the Dandi Satyagraha, was an act of nonviolent civil

disobedience in colonial India led by Mahatma Gandhi.

Quiet India movement, it was one of the most impactful movement by Gandhiji. According to

Wikipedia,The Quit India Movement, also known as the August Kranti Movement, was a

movement launched at the Bombay session of the All India Congress Committee by Mahatma

Gandhi on 8th August 1942, during World War II, demanding an end to British rule in India.

He got arrested many times, he had many obstacle and hurdles but his objective was clear, he

wanted India to be independent, he wanted freedom, he wanted everyone to be united. He

asked everyone's support, unity and hunger of freedom played a major role in freedom struggle.

Unfortunately, Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated on 30 January 1948 at age 78 in the

compound of Birla House (now Gandhi Smriti), a large mansion in central New Delhi. We all

know he is no more us but, believe me he is still alive in everyone's heart.

Every year on 2nd Oct Gandhi jayanti is celebrated in order to show gratitude to mahatma

Gandhi. Gandhi ji said"live as if you were to die tomorrow and learn as if you were to live

forever." He believed in him selves he said " if i have the belief that i can do it, i shall surely
