“Peace is the most powerful weapon of mankind. It takes more courage to take a blow than to give one.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi.

BIFS celebrated Gandhi Jayanti to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of Nation – Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, a pioneer of truth and non-violence. We celebrated this day with great zeal, enthusiasm and patriotism. On this auspicious occasion, the students presented the assembly highlighting the significance of this day. The children laid emphasis on non-violence presenting the philosophical and pragmatic ideals of Gandhi Ji. The students also shed light on Gandhi Ji’s invaluable contribution in India’s freedom struggle and how his principles of truth and non-violence are still remembered today. Thus the children of BIFS were given deep insight into the life and times of Mahatma Gandhi and were encouraged to think about the sacrifice of our freedom fighters, analyzing the importance and understanding the value of freedom, through the day’s activities.
