Gandhi Jayanti 2022: History, Facts and Thoughts

“If we want real peace in this world, we should start educating children.” – Mahatma Gandhi 

A man with this ideology and courage to reflect it into his actions, deserves to be the Father of a Nation. A life does not become ideal for thousands overnight. There has to be a lot of blood and sweat behind it. Many movements took place when India was under the shackle of British rule. The zeal in Indians was enough to shake the foundation of the British Government. But, the movements were not organised. Since Gandhiji started gathering Indians under shade and forming structured movements, British rulers started seeing the end of their oppression in India. Now, you know why a nation celebrates a man every year. This great soul took birth on 2nd of October. We celebrate the 2 October as Gandhi Jayanti. The entire country remembers his unyielding zeal and unwavering determination.

As everything requires a flag-bearer to show the path, the Indian freedom struggle was no exception. Gandhiji, also known as Bapu (the father), was one of those flag bearers. When British rulers were crushing Indians under their boots with heavy taxes and many other oppressions, Gandhiji appeared as a guiding light and showed the right path to the nation.
