But on this birth anniversary, when India and the whole world is celebrating 150th anniversary of the Mahatma, we suggest one of the important topics for speech can be “Bapu and the non-violence”.


Considering the scenario in India as well as around the world, this topic will be most relevant to talk about. One can take up a speech on why the United Nations General Assembly decided to keep non-violence day on Gandhi’s birthday and why the non-violence is the need of the hour.

The United Nations General Assembly on June 15, 2007 has declared the 2nd October as International Day of Non-Violence. Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophy of non-violence remains sage advice in a world where differences are more easily amplified and people take offence more readily.

During India’s struggle for freedom, he showed the world that freedom can be achieved peacefully through the path of non-violence. Gandhi won rights for the 75,000 Indians living in South Africa. He achieved this without violence. Gandhi firmly believed that people could never win their rights through violence. He used new form of protest “Satyagraha” – derived from the Sanskrit words meaning “truth” and “force.”
