Mahatma Gandhi's 150th anniversary: Recalling his top quotes
New Delhi, Oct 02: On Mahatma Gandhi's 150th birth anniversary, his message of peace and non-violence is more relevant than ever. Mahatma Gandhi staunchly believed in non-violence and so strong was his belief that he wanted his followers to strictly adhere to it. Gandhiji not only preached non-violence but practised it in his life and even his fight for India's freedom from the British rule was rooted in the ideology of Ahimsa.
