The Vice President, Shri Jagdeep Dhankhar greeted the people on the eve of Gandhi Jayanti. Following is the full text of his message –
“I extend my heartiest greetings and good wishes on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, the birth anniversary of our Father of Nation.
One of the most influential personalities of modern India, Mahatma Gandhi remains the moral anchor and beacon of hope for the entire humanity in these troubled times. His Satyagraha and non-violent struggle against injustice have inspired millions across the world. Gandhi Ji’s abiding faith in Truth and the inherent goodness of human beings is much needed today.
Every generation must rediscover Mahatma Gandhi in its own way. The many dangers facing the world today – from poverty to climate change to wars – can be successfully tackled by appropriately utilizing the principles enunciated by Gandhi Ji. In today’s strife-torn world, Bapu’s sane voice guides humanity that war is not a solution to any problem.
On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, let’s pray for a peaceful world that is free of violence, extremism, terrorism and all form of discrimination.”
Mahatma Gandhi (2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was an Indian politician, lawyer, social activist, and writer who led India’s nationalist movement.
He was also known as the father of the country. Every year the country celebrates Gandhi Jayanti, on his birthday. Martin Luther and Nelson Mandela also adopted his philosophy of truth and non-violence.
