Global celebrations to commemorate Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary!

There are few leaders as inspirational as Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, popularly known as Mahatma Gandhi around the world. His struggle to help India gain freedom from British rule, his life’s message of peace and non-violence, and the example of simplicity and austerity that was reflected in his own lifestyle are all celebrated virtues and ideals even today. 


Read the greatest world leaders and thinker,

who are inspired by Mahatma Gandhi !

The list is long, diverse and awe-inspiring. Here’s what the world’s greatest leaders and thinkers of the 20th century had to say about Mahatma Gandhi. 

In 2009, when Barack Obama was visiting Wakefield High School in the US, a ninth grader asked the would-be President: “If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?” Obama chuckled and answered: “Well, dead or alive, that’s a pretty big list. You know, I think that it might be Gandhi, who is a real hero of mine.”

Albert Einstein and Gandhi were big admirers of each other and exchanged letters frequently. Einstein called Gandhi “a role model for the generations to come” in a letter, writing about him. “I believe that Gandhi’s views were the most enlightened of all the political men in our time,” he said.

When Steve Jobs started his second innings at Apple in the year 1997, he stood before a giant portrait of Mahatma Gandhi and said these words before a packed audience: “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers…because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” It is believed that Mahatma Gandhi inspired these words.
