Mahatma Gandhi, also known as the “Father of the Nation” in India, was a prominent leader in the Indian independence movement against British colonial rule. He was known for his principles of non-violence (Ahimsa) and civil disobedience, which he used as powerful tools to advocate for freedom, justice, and equality.
Gandhi’s life and teachings continue to inspire people worldwide. His commitment to truth, peace, and social justice left an indelible mark on the world. On this day, it is essential to reflect on his legacy and the values he stood for, such as non-violence, tolerance, and unity.
In commemorating Gandhi’s death anniversary, we can honor his memory by promoting peace, harmony, and social justice in our own lives and communities. His message of non-violence and his relentless pursuit of a more just and equitable world continue to be relevant and serve as a guiding light for humanity.
Mahatma’s soul, forever spread By Arjun Desai
Spin of charkha, soul unstilled,
From ashram wall to nation’s cry,
|Mahatma Gandhi, we adore
By Nirali Shah
In India’s land of vibrant hues,
He walked a path of truth and peace,
Satyagraha, his weapon strong,
His legacy, forever strong,
With ink in their veins and fire in their souls, Nirali and Arjun Shah, Indian teens aged 14 and 12, weave magic with words, especially when it comes to the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi. Nirali’s verses paint Gandhi’s unwavering courage with strokes of saffron and emerald, each line a silent protest against tyranny. Arjun crafts intricate poems; his words are like polished pebbles, deep and contemplative. He delves into the Mahatma’s quiet strength, the echoes of his wisdom reverberating through lines that shimmer like moonlight on the Yamuna. In their poems, Gandhi is not just a historical figure but a living ember, his ideals a torch they carry with unwavering determination. They dream of a world painted with the colors of his non-violent revolution, a world where their words become bricks paving the path to a just and equitable future.
