On October 2 1869, a remarkable, reputable and respectable man was born in India who had a dream to change humanity for the better. He led India to independence and inspired movements for initiating non-violence, civil rights and freedom across the world – right up until his assassination in 1948. This man was of course the great Mahatma Gandhi. He is my childhood’s hero till to-date and I must admit that he had impacted and transformed my life significantly. Though he had gone, his spirit is still strong in his absence.
