Gandhi jayanti celebration in London

It was just a perfect coincidence for me to be in London today on the day of Gandhi Jayanti which is also celebrated as non violence day.

I was bit curious to know what actually people do on this day. To my surprise it was damn serious and sincere efforts by various organisations to acknowledge the contribution of this man called GANDHI in various forms.

I started with first celebration at Euston square garden where high commissioner remained present and gave a short speech on the importance of this day. Than we followed to High commissioner’s office where Modiji’s speech was telecasted live from Delhi where he opened a center specially for NRIs. It followed to the parliement square where patidar samaj concluded peace march. 

I used to read and write a lot about Gandhiji in school days. I remembered his teachings but forgot him in last few years. It was a good feeling to get connected with my favorite topic of essay in school days.
