Indian Republic Day, January 26th Gandhi Jayanti—October 2nd
 
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, also known as 'Bapu', Mahatma Gandhiji or 'Father of the nation', was born on the 2nd of October in 1869, in Porbunder, Gujrat. Gandhi Jayanti is the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhiji, and it is celebrated all over India and many other countries.

On this day, the President and Prime Minister, along with other eminent political leaders, pay homage and bhajans, or devotional songs are sung at his samadhi, at, Raj Ghat, Delhi. To mark the respect that Gandhi had for all the religions and communities, representatives from different religions take part in it. Verses and prayers are read out from the holy books of all the religions. Gandhi's favourite song, Raghupati Raghava, is invariably sung at all the meetings associated with him. Prayer meetings are held in various state capitals as well. All the offices and schools, throughout the country, remain closed on this day.

He is the man who played a significant role in achieving independence for India from British rule. He helped to free India by a unique method of non violence resistance. He proved to the world that freedom can be achieved through the path of non-violence. Gandhiji is the synonym of peace and truth.

Gandhiji believed in the dignity of man and left us all a legacy of Ahimsa (non violence), love and tolerance. His life was guided by a search for truth. He believed that truth is God and his aim in life was to achieve truthfulness in thought, word and act. Ahimsa (non violence) to him was the highest virtue. He believed that truth could be known only through tolerance and concern for others.

Gandhiji adopted Satyagraha based on principles of courage, non-violence and truth.

Gandhi was also deeply spiritual, and believed that all religions showed the way to ultimate enlightenment. He also wrote a commentary on the Bhagavad Gita, a book that influenced him deeply.

On the evening of January 30th a Hindu fanatic, Nathu Ram Godse, who opposed Gandhi’s principles of tolerance for all religions, came to Gandhi’s prayer meeting place, whipped out his pistol and fired three shots. Gandhiji fell instantly with the last words ‘He Rama’ (Oh! God).
