“I’m a lover of my own freedom, and so I would do nothing to restrict yours” – Mahatma Gandhi
Father of the nation, our Gandhiji, well-known for his non-violent fight and simple living is an evergreen icon of India for its flights and fights. His teachings are taught in schools to incur good morality and principle to the upcoming generations. But the relevant question arises how often we live Gandhiji. It seems the teachings of Gandhi ji are confined only to text books and his birthday a mere holiday. We the people in the era of development live a world of all sorts of problems such as population growth, unemployment, poverty, racial discrimination, insecurity, economic inequality, social injustice, corruption etc. in addition to the globalization issues. The time has surpassed that we think about the best available solutions to the issues which best suit our need. The best suited solution for the above problems of contemporary world is to follow Gandhi’s principles. Gandhi’s profuse writings, speeches and talks cover every conceivable aspects of Indian life of his time as well as present world. ‘My life is my message’ is an all-time message by Gandhiji to the upcoming generations to preach and practice truth and non-violence in life. The simple living he followed throughout his life is a path towards democracy which solves every single issues we face today. Living simple is not a simple task. But let us even try.
