Do or Die
It's exactly 65 years and one day since Gandhi said those uncharacteristic words sparking off the largest and most successful movement of peace, The Quit India Movement. At a time when WWII ravaged every corner of the globe and violence became the norm, one man dared to stand up and say "NO!!!" The Art of Peace was born and five years after it began, the August Movement was at the helm waving goodbye to centuries of occupation by our unwelcome guests.
Gandhigiri is just a term and a foolish one at that. Today we remember reality. Today we remember the Mahatma.
