Today (2nd October), on the eve of, International Day of Non-Violence (declared by the United Nations in the year 2007), it goes without saying that the world should re-visit history, as why this man has been proclaimed by the World’s Greats as the World’s Greatest!
He never said, that Non-violence alone was sufficient. In his views, Non-Violence is actually the Hinduism concept of “Universal Love and Brotherhood” explained by the Sanskrit Shloka “Vasudev Kutumbakam”. He has explained that during those times, the world had seen a lot of bloodshed. It had witnessed various wars including World War 1 and World War 2, and Shri M K Gandhi was hurt as a human being. He felt it was responsibility of “Bhaarat” known to him and many as the “Jagat Guru” (ancient India has been referred to as the Teacher of the world in many Indian/Hindu scriptures), to teach the world once again. The teachings he felt which needed immediate attention were – Non-violence, Love, Universal Brotherhood and Truth.
