Gandhi Jayanthi


Today is Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday.

Let me share some of the quotes that are close to my heart and I remember well. (it has no particular order).

My life is my message.

Poverty is the worst kind of violence.

We need to be the change we wish to see in the world.

Every Hindu boy and girl should possess sound Sanskrit learning.

Today I know that physical training should have as much place in the curriculum as mental training.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.

“A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption of our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider of our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favour by serving him. He is doing us a favour by giving us the opportunity to do so.”

He called his autobiography The Story of My Experiments with Truth. Its a good read. It is today available throughout the world, online for delivery,as pdf versions and in most languages. I used to buy the Portuguese version in a “livraria” in Avenida Paulista, SaoPaulo for my Brasilian friends.

Gandhi’s favourite Bhajan was Raghupathy Raghava Raja Ram.You can go through more information about Gandhi here.
