Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti 2017 — 148th Birth Anniversary
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (October 2, 1869 – January 30, 1948) was the pre-eminent political and ideological leader of India during the Indian independence movement. Mahatma (Sanskrit: venerable) Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. He experimented with non-violence, truth, Satyagraha and found these ideals as worth putting into practice. He strove hard to eliminate the curse of untouchability from the India society.
Gandhi Jayanti is a national holiday celebrated in India to mark the occasion of the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the Nation (though not officially). The day is a national holiday and also celebrated world-wide as the International Day of Non-Violence.

Definition of Non-Violence
The principle of non-violence, also known as non-violent resistance, rejects the use of physical violence in order to achieve social or political change. Often described as the politics of ordinary people, this form of social struggle has been adopted by mass populations all over the world in campaigns for social justice.
There are three main categories of non-violence action:
- protest and persuasion, including marches and vigils;
- non-cooperation; and
- non-violent intervention, such as blockades and occupations
