    October 2, the international day of nonviolence, is an important day for Indians who celebrate the birth anniversary of their great political leader and symbol of pacifist resistance, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Better known as Mahatma, or “The Great Soul”, Gandhi played a pivotal role in India’s struggle for freedom from British colonial rule. For the most part, he’s still universally adored and considered the father of the nation.
