Bishwa Nath Singh The Birth day of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi who is widely known as Mahatma Gandhi, the "Father of the Nation", is celebrated on the 2nd of October every year. He was the man who had played the most significant role in achieving indepen...dence for India from the British Empire with his simplicity, honesty and strong will power. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, also known as `Bapu` or `Father of the nation`, was born on the 2nd of October in 1869, in Porbunder now in Gujarat state of India. He studied law in U.K and practiced law in South Africa. But he left his profession and returned to India to join the Indian freedom struggle. There are many inspiring stories from his life out of which one is reproduced below:Soon after Gandhi Ji’s return from South Africa, a meeting of the Congress was held in Bombay. Kaka Saheb Kalelkar went there to help. One day Kaka Saheb found Gandhi Ji anxiously searching around his desk. "What's the matter? What are you looking for?" Kaka Saheb asked. "I've lost my pencil," Gandhi Ji replied. "It was only so big."Kaka Saheb was upset to see Gandhi Ji wasting time and worrying about a little pencil. He took out his pencil and offered it to him. "No, no, I want my own little pencil," Gandhi Ji insisted like a stubborn child."Well, use it for the time being," said Kaka Saheb. "I'll find your pencil later. Don't waste time looking for it now.""You don't understand. That little pencil is very precious to me," Gandhi Ji insisted. "Natesan's little son gave it to me in Madras. He gave it with so much love and affection. I cannot bear to lose it." Kaka Saheb didn't argue any more. He joined Gandhi Ji in the search. At last they found it-a tiny piece, barely two inches long. But Gandhi Ji was delighted to get it back. To him it was no ordinary pencil. It was the token of a child's love and to Gandhi Ji a child's love was very precious. The United Nations General Assembly had passed a resolution and announced on the 15th of June 2007 that it adopted a resolution which declared that October 2 will be celebrated as the International Day of Non-Violence. Let us join to pay our respectful homage to him and pledge to carry out his legacy truthfully in our life!
