Old Bangla Song At the current rate of poverty reduction, Bangladesh will require years to eliminate poverty in rural areas and 43 years to achieve the prime target of the Millennium Development Goals, a report prepared by a research organisation, Unnayan Onneshan, claims.
Gandhi was born Oct.
His saintly, austere, religiously inclusive young mother Putlibai and his equally-devout nurse Rambha were major spiritual influences on him, as was his self-sacrificing father, Karamchand, an older man serving as prime minister of the small princely state of Porbandar.
Mohandas, happily wedded to Kasturbai in an arranged marriage at age 13, had to leave his wife and infant son six years later four years after his father's passing to study law in London, where, among other things, he became a staunch vegetarian.
Returning to India inhis lack of success in establishing a legal career led him to take up a case and begin to practise law at Durban, South Africa in It was not a smooth start: Gandhi was loudly booed and rejected by many VIPs and their sycophants at a crowded political convention hosted by the theosophist Annie Besant in Februarywhen Gandhi in his speech dared in his humble, soft-spoken way to suggest self-criticism, mass education, abandonment of greed, and trust in God as the way to success.
Fairly soon, however, Gandhi became one of the most charismatic figures in the Indian National Congress, and a friend to India's multitudes through his espousal of numerous causes dear to agrarians and simple laborers, who comprise the majority of her population.
A key element on the road to India's Independence was not only Gandhi's launching in of the movement of non-cooperation with the British, but the willingness of the exemplary Gandhi and his comrades to go to prison many times through peaceful, courageous acts of civil disobedience, like the famous Dandi march to the sea in to make salt against the British ban.
Another major element in the campaign was the radically simplified, rustic, yogi-like lifestyle of Gandhi and his colleagues. As he had done with his Phoenix Farm and Tolstoy Farm vegetarian ashram-communities in South Africa, so in India he set up the Sabarmati agrarian ashram near Ahmadabad in and then the Sevagram model village in in the Wardha district.
He also founded in the weekly papers Young India in English and its Gujarati edition, Navajivana, renamed in Harijan and Harijanabandhu for the "children of God," as he lovingly named the scorned outcaste "untouchable" peoples of India many of whom today prefer to call themselves by the more neutral, nonreligious term "Dalit"--suppressed people.
Sabarmati and then Sevagram became, as scholar Iain Raeside notes, "part school, part refuge, but chiefly the headquarters of a powerful movement for independence, for peace, for equality between Hindus and for the tolerance of other religions upon whose hymns and prayers Gandhi would draw freely for his services and for countless moral homilies, spoken and written.
The years rolled on Gandhi's wife and partner in the great work, Kasturbai, died in prison on Feb. World War II was raging. When the Allies finally won the war, Gandhi, who had graciously backed off a bit during the war years on demanding that the British "Quit India," resumed the nonviolent struggle for Swaraj.
Upon his return to India back inGandhi had organized poor farmers and labourers to protest against oppressive taxation and widespread discrimination.
Soon after assuming leadership of the Indian National Congress, Gandhi had led nationwide campaigns for mitigating poverty, for liberating women, for brotherhood and respect among differing religious faiths and ethnicities, for an end to untouchability and caste discrimination, and for the economic self-sufficiency of the nation.
But above all his struggle had been for Swaraj, "self-rule," the independence of India from foreign domination. The dream of Independence for Mother India was fulfilled when the British occupational forces finally and quite amiably left on August 15,a landmark event that triggered numerous national liberation movements in other countries around the world some of which would be ruthlessly toppled by the Soviets or by the USA.
The country would be partitioned later in into a Hindu-majority India and a Muslim-majority Pakistan. Gandhi, who had reluctantly acquiesced to the idea of partition, had for years earlier expressed opposition to the idea, but relented when the Muslim leader Muhammad Ali Jinnah pushed hard for it.
A member of one of these factions assassinated Gandhi on Jan. Gandhi was to have received the Nobel Peace Prize later that year, an award he had been denied several times since being nominated for the first time in Decades later, the Nobel Committee publicly declared its regret for the omission, admitting that deeply divided nationalistic opinion was the reason.
With Gandhi dead, the Peace Prize was respectfully not awarded at all inon the grounds that "there was no suitable living candidate" that year other than the late Mahatma.The Wuhan Gang & The Chungking Gang, i.e., the offsprings of the American missionaries, diplomats, military officers, 'revolutionaries' & Red Saboteurs and the "Old China Hands" of the s and the herald-runners of the Dixie Mission of the s.
