To commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the Gandhi Development Trust held an interfaith peace prayer at the Phoenix Settlement in Inanda. Various activities, including a tree-planting ceremony, was held at Bulwer Park to mark Gandhi’s birthday, and would also recognise the work of his wife, Kasturbai.

The occasion was also be used to teach and encourage young children to read at the Gandhi Phoenix Settlement in Inanda.

“The Memorial Committee screened Gandhi film material at the Liberty Mall for no charge during the week. Lovingly remembered as the Father of the Nation, Gandhiji has inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. On 2 October the 150-year Jayanti for Gandhiji was celebrated! He was a great soul who loved even those who fought against his ideals to bring about peace with the non-violence philosophy. I often wonder how a meek and fragile person of such a small physical stature can inspire millions to bring about such a profound change.  Particularly his saying “An eye for an Eye can bring the whole world down” is so relevant and needs to be internalised by us all to create a better life and co-existence between us all! May his words inspire us all to move forward in harmony”, said one of the members of the trust, Sulosh Pillay.

Meanwhile as India celebrated the 150th birth anniversary, a portion of his ashes kept at Bapu Bhawan in Madhya Pradesh’s Rewa were stolen.
