30th January and it was Gandhi Nirvan Day or call it, Martyrs Day too.
The vedic verse chanted at Gandhiji’s Funeral pyre:In the midst of death, life persists, In the midst of untruth, truth persists, In the midst of darkness, light persists, Hence I gather that God is Life, Truth, Love. -Mahatma Gandhi
And today, we find in the news, the controversy that hovers round what words Gandhi said when Godse killed him. Whether he said, "Hey Ram' or whether his last words were "aah" as Godse mentioned.
Whatever, the light has gone from our lives but we still have the Inspirations and teachings of Gandhiji. However, so difficult to adhere to the rules of Gandhian living in today's time! Here's Gandhiji pages on Kidsfreesouls Literature.
Btw, February is the month for Children Dental Health and also for all the fluttering souls, the Valentine month. Most noteworthy is February stand for the American Heart Month. While we exercise, it's most important to know the difference between being healthy and being fit. Many of us are fit but not healthy and the vice versa. You can find the February Month Project and February calendar too.
And, Here's a note I just wrote on my Statesman Health Blog after a long period. Keep Fit, Keep Healthy!
