Seven Blunders of the World

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, commonly known to the world as Mahatma Gandhi, was a prominent leader during the Indian freedom struggle. Apart from being a renowned leader, he was also a great humanitarian and had lot of belief in humanity. He was the pioneer of satyagraha—resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience, firmly founded upon ahimsa or total non-violence—which led India to independence and has inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. He is officially honoured in India as the Father of the Nation; his birthday, 2 October, is commemorated there as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday, and worldwide as the International Day of Non-Violence.

His views are still considered, and will be considered for a long time to come, as the best possible way a human should live his life. Here is just one of them. Hope you like it.
