Thought for the Day

“A man is but the product of his thoughts
what he thinks, he becomes.”

~ Mahatma Gandhi



*Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

Born: 2 October 1869 Porbandar, Bombay Presidency, British India
Died: 30 January 1948 (aged 78) New Delhi, Union of India

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 gain independence, and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. Gandhi is often referred to as Mahatma Gandhi “Great Soul”, an honorific first applied to him by Rabindranath Tagore, and in India also as Bapu (Gujarati: b?pu or “Father”). He is officially honoured in India as the Father of the Nation; his birthday, 2 October, is commemorated there as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday, and worldwide as the International Day of Non-Violence.
