Speech on Gandhi Jayanti
OCT.2ND 2008.
          Dear students and teachers,
          First of all wish you all A HAPPY GANDHI JAYANTI.
I think there is a question in most of your minds about the celebration of Gandhi Jayanti. It is likely to be :
Is Gandhiji relevant today
            1893, a 24-year-old Indian lawyer arrived in Durban to take part in a lawsuit in Transvaal. He booked a first-class train ticket to Johannesburg – and was ordered out of the train because of his colour.

This experience was the beginnning of the making of the Mahatma. The rebel in Gandhi didn't leave it there but questioned this inhuman injustice. Had it happened to any of us, we would have just taken it for granted or tried to forget it as a bitter experience.
He founded TOLSTOY FARM and taught people the initial lessons in self-reliance, vocational education and many more. When he came to India, while addressing a meeting he said, "India is not a few officers in Delhi but millions of villages." Those from the gathering who got up to leave came back listening to a voice from the heart. They found their true leader. My dear children, Gandhiji had understood the pulse and spirit of India. He had read the Indian's mind clearly. He could contain millions of atmas within him and that is why he has been called the MAHATMA.
            A lawyer who could have led a luxurious life gave his time and life for the millions of poor people of India. He was the voice incarnate against injustice. I tell you, children, it is not very easy to be a living Gandhi or have a living Gandhi among us. He would whip you up from your slumber, he would not compromise with injustice. He was a man with great common sense and astounding social intelligence. Any violence stretched to its extreme would end in non-violence. Knowing this well he said like Christ...
