 Point of View
Gandhi and his beliefs
"We must become the change we want to see in the world". Mahatma Gandhi is considered the Father of the Indian independence movement. He spent many years in South Africa working to fight discrimination. While in India, his virtue, simple lifestyle and minimal dress endeared him to the people. Non-violence was his highest virtue. By non violence, he meant not only just the absence of violence, but also loving concern for all. He believed that truth could be known only through tolerance and concern for others. He inspired millions to fight for the cause and forced the British to leave India. He has proven that we can achieve the noble cause of liberty and justice without killing anyone or without making a child an orphan. - Daksha Jain

The Company one keeps

A man is known by the company he keeps.  A bad company spoils a man and brings him a bad name but if the person is good, it is sure to influence a person for his better life. Children are immature and tender. They can be moulded to any shape if they keep the company of good fellows they will develop a virtuous personality. If they fall in bad company they will go astray. They may spoil even their lives, so one must keep oneself away from a bad company that is why it is said "better alone than in bad company"- Bharti Rao
