Google's Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti Doodle

After a series of really interesting UFO and Crop Circle Doodles, Google is back in peaceful~action with a tribute to Mahatma Gandhi, the man who is known all around the world for his message of Ahimsa (non-violence) which he shared with humanity by setting an example ... his life !

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in Porbandar, a coastal town in present-day Gujarat, India, on 2 October 1869. His father, Karamchand Gandhi, who belonged to the Hindu Modh community, was the diwan (Prime Minister) of the eponymous Porbander state, a small princely state in the Kathiawar Agency of British India. His grandfather's name was Uttamchand Gandhi fondly called as Uttam Gandhi and his mother, Putlibai came from the Hindu Pranami Vaishnava community. Growing up with a devout mother and the Jain traditions of the region, the young Mohandas absorbed early the influences that would play an important role in his adult life; these included compassion to sentient beings, vegetarianism, fasting for self-purification, and mutual tolerance between individuals of different creeds.

The Indian classics, especially the stories of Shravana and Maharaja Harishchandra from the Indian epics, had had a great impact on Gandhi in his childhood. The story of Harishchandra, a well known tale of an ancient Indian king and a truthful hero, had a profound effect on Gandhi as a boy. Gandhi in his autobiography admits that it left an indelible impression on his mind. Gandhi's early self-identification with Truth and Love as the supreme value is traced back to his identification with these epic characters. "Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well" "Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony" "You must be the change you want to see in the world" "You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean ; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty" As I look around me I see the world in a different light Everything is changing and it happened over night Changing for the better and it starts with you and me So we'll sing our song together and forever we'll be free ... Sing a song of freedom people together everybody sing Sing a song of freedom each and every man PeopleComeTogether ツ all across the land ... If you're looking for an answer it's very close at hand Just take a look around you and then you'll understand Clap your hands together and let me hear the sound It's the time for liberation so pass the world around ... Sing ... ♪ ♩ ♫ ♬ ... ツ ~ Cliff Richard Related Articles :
