October 2nd, 1869. The day a hero was born. The name Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi leaves us all in a sense of pride even centuries after his death. Such impactful were his life lessons that mainly revolved around simplicity and non-violence. It goes without saying that he was the backbone of the Indian freedom struggle, uniting leaders and people across various walks of life, slowly and steadily leading India towards Independence. Our nation has seen several leaders rise and fall but no one can match the fame and glory of Mahatma Gandhi and hence he is very aptly titled the father of our nation. <br/><br/> Gandhi's birthday, 2 October, is celebrated in India as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday, and worldwide as the International Day of Nonviolence to honour Mahatma Gandhi's role in Indian Independence. This year, YoungTalento invites all the orators to come and celebrate this special day with us. Deliver a 3-5-minute speech showering your tribute to the father of our nation and send it to us. We will let the nation know your love for Gandhi.
