Gandhi Jayanti 2022: History and Significance

Mahatma Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869, in Porbunder, a small town in Gujarat. He studied law in U.K and practiced law in South Africa. In his autobiography “My experiments with Truth”, Gandhiji read his childhood and teenage years, his marriage with Kasturba at the age of 13 and a pure devotion to his country. Gandhiji was a pathfinder of truth and non-violence and he sets an example of easy sustenance and noble thinking. He started the ‘Satyagraha’ (non-violence) movement for the Indian freedom fight and played a vital role in obtaining freedom for the country from British rule. He showed the world that freedom could be achieved by following the path of absolute non-violence. Violence was against his conscience and he always chose to keep his inner conscience above everything. This teaches us that we too should listen to our inner conscience before taking crucial steps or making important decisions of our life. 
“Morality is the basis of things and truth is the substance of all morality.”
-Mahatma Gandhi

Gandhi Jayanti 2022 Quotes

1) If you are not happy about anything in your world or society, be willing to change it within yourself first. Don’t complain. Complaining won’t take you anywhere. Nothing will change unless you change.

2) Happiness comes when you follow your own path. When you refuse to settle for others’ expectations of what you should and shouldn’t be doing and instead live the life you know is right for YOU. When your actions in life back up your words, when you know inside you are living true to yourself, that is when you can’t be anything but happy. Happiness lies in integrity.

3) You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.

4) I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

5) I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.

6) Your beliefs become your thoughts,

Your thoughts become your words,

Your words become your actions,

Your actions become your habits,

Your habits become your values,

Your values become your destiny.

7) Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:

– I shall not fear anyone on Earth.

– I shall fear only God.

– I shall not bear ill will toward anyone.

– I shall not submit to injustice from anyone.

– I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.”

8) Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.

9 ) What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or in the holy name of liberty or democracy?

10) Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.
