Punyatithi (30th January, 2003)
We pay our respectful homage to The Father of our country. It
is one more occasion to remember his greatness and to commit
ourselves to the eternal values which he lived. He became eternal
because he lived his life by TRUTH, which is eternal in nature.
Apostle of Peace is shot dead
is an interesting detailed narration of the activities of
Gandhiji on the last day of his life. It reveals how much energy
and enthusiasm he had, to serve his beloved country and its
people. He had no official post either in the Government nor
in the Congress, yet he was fully engaged in positive action
for both. Even on that fateful day, he dictated notes for the
draft Resolution of the Congress Constitution.
At the ripe age of 79 years, he had the enthusiasm to
quote an Urdu couplet and learn writing a few words of Bengali!!
These incidences show the child-like qualities of the Mahatma.
He was always with people, meeting them, consoling them, re-assuring
them. He always had a unique place in the hearts of millions
of people, and will continue to do so.
in the 21st Century: Challenges and Choices is an article
by Arun Gandhi, grandson of Gandhiji. It shows the practicability
of applying non-violence in modern times.
Peace is an overview on the contribution of Gandhiji
to India, in the words of a non-Indian writer Andrea Walker.
Finally, take this opportunity to Pay Tribute to Gandhiji and
other leaders of India?s Freedom struggle. We at Vandemataram.com
value your patriotism. Jai Bharat.
