Gandhi Jayanti Speech
GANDHI JAYANTI SPEECH 1
A very good morning to the excellencies, Principal sir, teachers and my dear colleagues. My name is … I study in class … standard. I would like to recite a speech at this great occasion of Gandhi Jayanti. However, first of all I would like to say a big thank to my class teacher for giving me this opportunity to speech here at this national occasion. My dear friends, we are here to celebrate Gandhi Jayanti (2nd of October means birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi). It is an auspicious occasion which provides us an opportunity to commemorate a great patriotic leader of the country. It is celebrated worldwide, nationally (as Gandhi Jayanti) and internationally (as International Day of Non-Violence).
Today, on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, I would like to focus on the life history of father of the nation. Mahatma Gandhi was born on 2nd of October in 1869 in a small town of India called Porbandar, Gujarat. The name of his parent was Karamchand Gandhi and Putlibai. After completing the education of primary and higher secondary, Bapu went to England in 1888 for getting higher education in law. After completing his law degree, he returned to India in 1891 and started participating in the independence movement of India. Once he became the victim of racism in South Africa which badly affected his soul, from then he started opposing the social evil of racism.
After his returning to India he met Gopala Krishna Gokhale and joined the movements of Indian freedom struggle in order to raise his voice against British rule. On the way to freedom of India he started various movements such as non-cooperation movement in 1920, dandi march in 1930 and quit India movement in 1942. He was a great patriotic leader whom continuous efforts forced Britishers to go back on their back foot in 1947. We celebrate his birth anniversary to pay him a tribute and say him a thank to give us an Independent India.
