India observes Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday, to commemorate the “Father of the Nation” Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday. Every year on October 2, it is observed. One of India’s officially recognized National Holidays, it is observed in all of the country’s states and union territories. On June 15, 2007, the United Nations General Assembly announced that it had passed a resolution designating October 2 as the International Day of Non-Violence. 

With his simplicity and tenacity, he is the man who made a significant contribution to India’s victory over the British Empire. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi also referred to as “Bapu” or the “Father of the Nation,” was born in Porbandar, Gujarat, on October 2, 1869. He received his legal training in the United Kingdom and South Africa. But he quit his job and went back to India to take part in the country’s struggle for independence.

Gandhiji was assassinated by Nathuram Godse five months after the country gained its independence as he was making his way to his daily prayer meeting. The 78-year-old Father of the Nation had been abandoned in a nation that was only beginning to find its feet.

Popular celebrations include prayer gatherings and commemorative events hosted by colleges, local government agencies, and socio-political organizations in various cities. For projects in schools and the community on the themes of glorifying peace, non-violence, and Gandhi’s efforts in the Indian Freedom Struggle, painting and essay competitions are held, and the best awards are given. Typically, Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram, Gandhi’s favorite devotional song, is sung in his honor. On this day, sincere Gandhi devotees abstain from meat and alcohol. Mahatma Gandhi made an immeasurable contribution to fostering nonviolence and peace in the world. His teachings must be spread in order to end current conflicts, abstain from violence, find peaceful solutions, and improve the quality of life in our world. Every year on September 30th, people around the world celebrate International Translation Day to honor and raise awareness about the value of translators and interpreters. They put a lot of effort while using their ability to translate to serve the nations.
