UN General Assembly announced on 15 June 2007 that it adopted a resolution which declared that 2 October will be celebrated as the Violence. Mahatma’s contribution towards India’s struggle for Independence is the most significant. Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi, who preached non-violence, emerged as one of the most prominent faces in India’s fight for freedom and his ideals remain relevant even to this day. Indians widely describe Gandhi as the Father of the Nation. The origin of this title is traced back to a radio address (on Singapore radio) on July 6, 1944 by Subhash Chandra Bose, in which Bose addressed Gandhi as "The Father of the Nation". On April 28, 1947, Sarojini Naidu also referred Gandhi as "Father of the Nation" during a conference.Rabindranath Tagore also addressed him as father of the Nation”.NYK former coordinator K.Subramanian recollected the contribution of Gandhi for the freedom of India and various human values as preached by M.K.Gandhi. K.Subramanian added “Mahatma Gandhi was the leader who guided India towards Independence. India was under the British rule for over 250

years. Gandhi returned to India from South Africa in 1915 at the request of Gopal Krishna Gokhale.Gandhi's contribution to the Indian freedom movement cannot be measured in words. He, along with other freedom fighters, compelled the British to leave India. His policies and agendas were non-violent and his words were the source of inspiration for millions. Mahatma Gandhi believed that education is very important for development and well of individuals as well as of a society. Mahatma Gandhi was responsible for fight against communal discrimination, women empowerment, rights of farmers and Indian merchants and what not. He shaped Indian nationalism that embed the feelings of EQUALITY, LIBERTY, FRATERNITY and in the end he did not involve any politics after independence.” SSMHS School students and teachers also spoke very highly on the values of Gandhi as it is suited to be followed even today. A community lunch was also served to the participants of the Gandhi Jayanthi -150th year celebrations.-Kris
