Point of View

30th January 1948
30th January 1948, the day when 'The Father of Nation' Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated is known as Martyrs day. Mahatma Gandhi played an important role in the Independence of our country. He was a great freedom fighter who believed in ahimsa. On 30th January 1948 three bullets were penetrated in 78 year old Gandhi's body by Nathuram Godse. Today his philosophy of life is much more relevant than ever before. Though Mahatma Gandhi is no more with us yet he will always remain alive in the people's hearts.
