Mahatma Gandhi - Truth and non violence

Gandhi, The Father of the nation and here is the profile of a leader who influenced thousands of Indians and people round the globe with his non violence philosophy.

A conference held earlier `Peace, Non-violence and Empowerment - Gandhian Philosophy in the 21st Century' was structured around four presentations by Scholars and Gandhians. The subject emphasized was:

conflict resolution and peace-building
Gandhian philosophy for poverty eradication
education and people's empowerment
dialogue among peoples and cultures
towards a nuclear weapons free and non-violent world order

The 192 UN Member countries has declared 2nd October, Mahatma Gandhi's Birth Anniversary as 'International Day of Non Violence' Day desiring to secure a culture of peace, tolerance, understanding and non-violence.

The Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad is a witness to many important historical events and is a national heritage. Sabarmati Ashram was home to Mohandas where he worked and practiced his principles for more than 18 years. It remained a major hub of political activities for the country. The Satyagraha Ashram carried a mission to create a non violent group of freedom fighters who helped in the freedom fight of the country. The Gandhian followers led a path of truth and non violence under Mahatma Gandhi's guidance. One of the important events was the Dandi Yatra - Mahatma Gandhi led the famous 'Salt March' (find in News about development of Dandi Bridge).
