Celebrate Gandhi Jayanti in Karnataka

Gandhi Jayanti

The birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi is celebrated every year on 2nd October. Father of the Nation, as he was called, led India’s independence movement, along with many other freedom fighters. He started several civil rights movements, promoting his method of non-violence. Thus, to celebrate his contribution to the country’s freedom struggle, 2nd October is marked as a national holiday. The United Nations also observes Gandhi Jayanti as ‘International Day of Non-Violence,’ to honour his valuable contributions to the Indian freedom struggle. On this day, many events are organised to promote Gandhiji’s thoughts and philosophies that continue to impact people’s lives.

While the celebration is unique in every State, the Government of Karnataka organises various events and programs to promote their thoughts on poverty eradication, environment conservation, the welfare of farmers, and the improvement of cottage industries. During the freedom struggle, Gandhiji visited few parts of Karnataka, leaving the impression of these thoughts. He visited the state capital, Bengaluru, five times. Kumara Park East is a guest house where he stayed for about three months in 1927. Now, the place is preserved with his plaque. Also, Gandhi Bhavan houses a museum with rare photographs, a library, and some letters written by him. Besides Bengaluru, Belgavi is another important city where you can celebrate Gandhi Jayanti as this is the only city where he chaired an INC conference.
