Traditions and Holidays
By Julie Schmiegelow
Gandhi once said: "I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill".
Perhaps he does not seem like a traditional fighter – the old man with the white khadi (cloth), glasses and a walking stick. But this man fought, won and became the father of a new nation.
October 2nd is the celebration of Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday.
Happy Gandhi Jayanti!
