Dussera and Gandhi Jayanti

Today is the Hindu festival of Dussera, and also the 137th anniversary of the birth of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Here's a post from last year's celebration of Dushera. Here's a post I put up on January 30 (the anniversary of his assasination), on one of his favorite hymns.

Dussera (Dushera) Mubarak!

In 1942, his ‘Quit India’ slogan was to serve as the final signal to

British dominion in India. The partition of India and Pakistan came

as a personal shock to Gandhi. When the nation was rejoicing

independence (1947), Gandhi went to Naokhali to ameliorate the

conditions of the communal riot victims.
