Respected headmaster, teachers and my dear friends, to day we are celebrating Gandhi Jayanti. On this auspicious occasion I want to focus on the life history of our loving Bapu ji. Mahatma Gandhi born on 2nd october, 1869 in the village called porbunder in Gujarat. His father was Karamchand Gandhi and mother Putlibai. After completing his primary and higher secondary education, he took interest to become a barrister. So, he was sent to England during 1888 for getting higher education in law. After hard struggling of four years he completed his law degree and returned to India in 1891.

Soon after returning from England, he proceeded to South Africa to in the search of work. In those days, there was a huge demand of Indian lawyers in South Africa. As per his wish he got the opportunity to work there. He spent around 20 years of his precious life period there. During these days, racism was prevailing in South Africa. He became one of the victim of this racism. He was thrown out of the running train even after getting a valid ticket in the first class reservation. This act badly affect his soul and he started to oppose the social evil of racism. These days were much memorable to Gandhi because during these days he got married with Kasturba Gandhi. She supported him in all walks of life.

He returned to India in 1915, Soon after his return he met Gopala Krishna Gokhale and discussed about the movements of Indian freedom struggle. He included himself in the Indian National Congress and raised his voice against the British ruling in India. He started Non-Cooperation moment in 1920 in which Indians were asked not to cooperate in any activities of British. In 1930 he made a dandi march by walking over a long stretch of around 400km. He broken the law of British against the production of salt. In 1942 he shouted 'quite India movement' through which he sent a message to the ruling British that leave our country and we are capable of ruling our own country. All these moment made British East India Company to set themselves on back foot. Finally, India got its freedom on 15th August, 1947.

Not just by cherish the moment, he was shot dead by Nathuram Godse on 30th January, 1948. Jai Hind, Jai Hind, Jai Hind.
