Relevance of Mahatma Gandhi in today’s world
What do you think! In today’s life people do follow the principles of Mahatma Gandhi? Do people really take interest in Gandhiji’s life? Do they practice “Gandhigiri” in real sense? Or it is just in the movies? The answer is unconcluded. Because some people do really follow but many of us just ignore. This is because of today’s lifestyle where people are involved in their activities to much greater extent and are not able to relate themselves with such topics. Youth for sometime practiced gandhiji’s principles under the influence of ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’ but as time passed the fever lost. These movies are able to influence the people for short time and many other movies even fails to make their presence. But till when the support of movies is to be taken to showcase the philosophies of the great leader. The system must take necessary steps to give knowledge to the children of the nation about the philosophies of Gandhi from their very beginning stage of studies. But in our education system many topics related wars, Hitler, many foreign invasions, etc.
are included in history syllabus but there is not even the word of Gandhi’s presence. This lead to lack of knowledge among nation’s people from their childhood and most of the people are unable or not interested to practice the Gandhi’s philosophies. In today era the people of other country follow and practice the philosophies of our leader to much greater extent and take the advantage in growth of the people of their country with the solid knowledge providing improvised background to their people. To conclude I would like to say that there is great need of providing better information and education about our father of nation to lead the children and youth of the country to the path of non-violence and truth.
