Its Mahatma Gandhi's 140th Anniversary today. And Google's Gandhi Logo Rocks.

Just noticed that the Google Logo had changed today. And for a good reason. It was the 140th birth anniversary of Gandhi. In India Oct 2nd is celebrated as the Gandhi Jayanti Day.

I have gone through parts of his autobiography, 'My experiments in truth' and it gives a good insight into his life experiences and reasoning. Though he lived in very different times, a lot of what he believed in and practiced is as much in need and relevance today as then. We need renewed calls for and the practice of the philosophy of non violence.

Thanks Google for reminding the greater online population of this truly great person (even given some of the controversies surrounding his life).
