Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday on the 2nd of October is celebrated as a national holiday in his native India.
We all know what this iconic figure looked like – unprepossessing, with his round glasses, traditional dhoti and kind eyes. But this one man did so much to change the world.
As we struggle to come to terms with the uncertainty of what the future will bring, his life and actions give us guidance and hope. And his values of tolerance, peace and standing up for what you believe in, are ones that we can all learn from.
