Emmai Vazhvikka Vanda Mahatma
Mahatma Gandhi, The apostle of Peace, is popularly known as The Father of the Nation in India. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on 2nd October 1869, in Porbandhar in India. The parents of this great son of India were Karamchand Gandhi and Puthli Bai. Gandhiji had always followed the path of truth and non-violence.
Here is the survey taken by our team to know what Gandhiji means to people:
Joanna says that to her Gandhi is a living example of what he said. The quality She liked the most in him was non-violence, because many people say something but do just the opposite. They don't do what they preach! He also had the courage to stand up and fight for what he felt was right.
Hrishi opines that he was a man with great foreseeing, and controlling ability in the field of human resources. His ideology is not half as important as the methods through which he evolved them and how he inspired millions to it. He was a great man, paralleled only by Sree Buddha and Jesus Christ.
Our teacher, Mr.D.Murthy has observed that M.K. Gandhiji was a living symbol of determination, dedication, devotion to Nation, dynamism and divinity combined with dignity. His paths of Patriotism along with Non-Violence for the Achievements of very high orders are quite time-tested and long-lasting. To follow or practice these ideals these days is a very great test of human strength and integrity.
From Our Principal, Mr.Vellaichami says, "Since my childhood, I consider him as an embodiment of Perseverance and Truth".
There is no doubt that the personality and thoughts of Gandhiji still influence the world. He is still remembered for his truthfulness, not only in October, but every time and everyday. He has given a right path for everybody to follow and let our thoughts be going through that way to reach our goals. Jai Hind!
Jawaharlal Nehru is another prominent and well known leader of our India. He was born on 14th in the month of November in 1889 in Allahabad, located in the central India. His father was late Motilal Nehru, who was a great advocate and also a member and leader of the Indian Independence Movement. Mr.Nehru had his graduation from the Cambridge University and he returned to India in 1912. He took active participation in the activities conducted by the Indian National Congress. He rose to become a top political leader of India and struggled for its independence from the foreigners. It is also said that he was sent seven times to jail while full-filling this great task.
Jawaharlal Nehru was the first ever Indian Prime Minister for India after its independence, i.e from 1947. His death which occured in May, 1964 was a huge loss to India. He was a great internationalist, and one of the founders of the non-aligned movement. He loved children very much and encouraged them all to work hard.
