October 2nd was the 71st anniversary of the death of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the Indian pacifist so well-known throughout the world who, thanks to his no-violence revolution, lead India to Independence.  He established Satyagraha (insistence on truth), a concept for defining a method of civil non-violent disobedience. 

Dramatization of Gandhi and his Advice for Life Respect

Possibly one of the most important concepts he gave the world was the practice of AHIMSA, non violence and respect for life. AHIMSA is a term and practice shared by the Hindu, Jainist and Buddhist religions in India: respect for any form of life.

Singing and dancing dedicated to Gandhi

In our Akshy School we held a special programme to celebrate the anniversary of Gandhi´s birth (a national holiday) and to really begin to understand the idea of Ahimsa.  In this way we aim to transmit to our children the importance of tolerance, non-violence and peace.

“An eye for an eye and the world goes blind!” (Gandhi)

Besides the explanations of our teacher Shiv Sir on the life of Gandhi and the concept of Ahimsa, the children prepared a short sketch on respect for life.  There was a dance and a song also dedicated to Gandhi´s qualities, the children prepared a short sketch and a recital of some of his most famous sayings .

Thank you Shiv Sir, Archana Miss and children for preparing this lovely programme!
