Bishwanath Singh: Let us ponder over very sincerely as why the 2nd of October is celebrated as the World Non-Violence Day! To begin with,let us have a glimpse of liife of Mahtama Gandhi who lived & died for well-being of all living in this country.Mohandas K...aramchand Gandhi who was born on the 2nd of October 1869 and left for heavenly abode on the 30th of January 1948 was the pre-eminent political and spiritual leader of India during the Indian independence movement. He pioneered satyagraha—resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience, a philosophy firmly founded upon ahimsa or total nonviolence—which helped India to independence.Gandhi Ji inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. Gandhi is commonly known around the world as Mahatma Gandhi ( a true soul) and in India also as Bapu ( father).. He is officially honored in India as the Father of the Nation where as his birthday the 2nd of October is commemorated there as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday, and worldwide as the International Day of Non-Violence.Gandhi first employed non-violent civil disobedience while an expatriate lawyer in South Africa, during the resident Indian community's struggle there for civil rights. After his return to India in 1915, he organized protests by peasants, farmers, and urban labourers concerning excessive land-tax and discrimination. After assuming leadership of the Indian National Congress in 1921, Gandhi led nationwide campaigns to ease poverty, expand women's rights, build religious and ethnic amity, end untouchability, and increase economic self-reliance. Above all, he aimed to achieve Swaraj or the independence of India from foreign domination. Gandhi famously led his followers in the Non-cooperation movement that protested the British-imposed salt tax with the 400 km Dandi Salt March in 1930. Later, in 1942, he launched the Quit India civil disobedience movement demanding immediate independence for India. Gandhi spent a number of years in jail in both South Africa and India.As a humble practitioner of ahimsa, he swore to speak the truth.Gandhi Ji advocated that others do the same. Gandhi lived modestly in a self-sufficient residential community and wore the traditional Indian dhoti and shawl, woven with yarn he had hand spun himself. He ate simple vegetarian food, experimented for a time with a fruitarian diet, and undertook long fasts as a means of both self-purification and social protest.Nathu Ram Godse and his Co-Conspirator Narayan Apte were later tried and convicted; they were executed on 15 November 1949. Gandhi's memorial at Rāj Ghāt, New Delhi, bears the epigraph "Hē Ram"that could be translated as "Oh God". These are widely believed to be Gandhi's last words after he was shot. Let us pay our homage to the father of our nation who lived & died for welfare of this country and pay our humble obeisance to his lotus feet to seek his bliss for well-being of all living-being of this universe!Mahatma Gandhi was a firm believer of non-violence who lived and died for well-being of others that is why just to commemorate his birth day is celebrated as the World' Non-violence Day that falls on the 2nd of October.Let us pay our homage to Bapu and respectful obeisance to His lotus feet!
