Gandhi Jayanti Celebration At B.D.M.International.
Rightly named as Bapu, this great leader was born on the 2nd of October 1869. Also called The Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi was the greatest of the freedom fighters. This year we celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, our very own Bapu.
To pay homage and to honor him the students of B.D.M. International organized a special assembly highlighting his contributions in India’s struggle for Independence. The programme begun with the Incharge and the teachers paying their tribute to the great leader, Mahatama Gandhi. The assembly was informative and highlighted Gandhiji’s struggle and his method of non-violence in achieving what many had thought was only a dream for India. The students spoke about his past and his family, his education and how even in South Africa he fought against apartheid. The fact that Gandhiji learnt his values from his mother and he got his principles from his father was also spoken about. The students had prepared a power point presentation along with the facts that they focused upon.
The most important fact that the students emphasized upon was that Gandhiji influenced the denizen of the country to fight against the British not by means of violence, but by adopting the policy of satyagrah and non-violence. His civil disobedience and the salt march to Dandi, where he prepared salt by violating the British laws were depicted through the ppt presentation. The amazing facts on this great leader truly amazed the students and were just a part of his never ending line of achievements. Finally the students also reflected upon how BDM International has always strived to follow Gandhiji’s principles and ideals and has always tried to maintain a clean and green India.
This has just been an endeavor on the part of the school to give due respect to the Leader of the Nation, who not only inspires the Indians even today but is remembered all over the world. This is itself evident from the fact that the Britishers who were forced to leave India, themselves remember Gandhiji as the Greatest Leader of all times.
