Gandhiji’s freedom struggle culminated in India’s Independence on 15th August, 1947. Mahatma Gandhi strived to lead the country to not just political independence, but to a better India and a society free of caste, religious, economic and even gender prejudices.
Though politically independent, India has long since grappled with the same vital issues that Gandhiji had to face when he came back to India on January 9, 1915 after his South African odyssey viz. –health issues, drinking water problem, social issues etc.
The occasion of 150th birth anniversary celebrations has given us an opportunity to remind the humanity of the efficacy of the message of Mahatma Gandhi.
Gandhi’s lessons are relevant in every policy of the country such as Swacch Bharat, rights of women and children, and of civil liberties of small and disadvantaged groups, health and well-being of the Indian farmer and the Indian village.
