The life of Mahatma Gandhi was influenced by various conditions, to which the concept of Satyagraha is also related. This topic has been discussed in an article in Times of India dt. Aug 17, 2011.According to him love and non-violence governed all living things. Basis of all religions of the world was love. Asserting the freedom of oneself over his mind and body was for non-violent resistance. Satyagraha of Gandhi included things like truth, non-violence (ahimsa), chastity, non-possession, tolerance and swadeshi etc., but the main plank consisted of truth and ahimsa together. For resisting all oppressive forces he used the non-violent approach, which is a good weapon of soul force. During freedom struggle, it was used as a weapon against English rulers and also for public welfare. Satyagraha has different forms e.g. hunger strike, striking work and immigration. The objective of Satyagraha was to reform the opponent. In present conditions, the individuals should be kept away from the influence of wealth, luxury and power. We should teach the concepts and principles of Satyagraha, truth and non-violence for peace and harmony, from school level onwards. In all walks of life, truth and non-violence help in getting peace and thus development, including for resolving disputes and conflicts in industry. These are expected to serve everywhere, as inspiration for all generations.
