Speech on Mahatma Gandhi for Students
Honourable Teachers and my dear Students, warm greetings to all of you. Today, I am delivering a speech on Mahatma Gandhi. There is no need to repeat the untiring efforts he put in the freedom of India and the old times itself speaks about this volume. Bapu was also his popular name and was a famous Indian Leader. His character was very great. Gandhi was born on 2nd October 1869 in a small village of Gujarat-Porbandar. The names of his parent were Putlibai and Karamchand Gandhi. Gandhi completed his primary and secondary education from India and for the higher education he went to England. He studied law there. He became a great political figure in the 1900’s. He took the responsibility of India’s freedom on his shoulders and helped the country in providing it. For 250 years Britishers ruled our country.
The part which Gandhi played in Independence League cannot be described in words. He forced the British Government to leave our country. His famous league of non-cooperation was a great weapon which he used against the British rulers to gain freedom. He is a great inspiration for all the Indians – the way he fought the India’s war for Independence. He truly was at the centre of this event.
Gandhi fought against the unfair taxes being levied on the poor Indians by the British rulers in India. His efforts persuaded and further compelled the British to grant tax relief to Indians. At that time there were many people in the society which were deprived of the basic facilities. Gandhi worked and freed them.
Gandhi was a man of his words. He always kept his promises. Even though the British rule was strong enough at that time, Gandhi reunited Indians with his great speeches and joined them for the noble cause. He told them the importance of a free nation and how it would affect them in all their life. Getting our homeland free from the British was the vision that Gandhi saw but making it come true was a difficult task. Bapu was a great fighter. His principles was peace and non-violence. He conducted non-cooperation movement but within the safe boundaries. He held a lot of conferences in all over India while running his independence campaign. He kept his promise and finally Indians managed to free their country from foreign rule.
We should always respect this legend till our last breath. Without Gandhi, we would not have been able to live a life today we are living. He gave us the new world. So we all should follow his sayings if we want to succeed in life.
I would now like to end my speech with the words that never forget your leaders. They are your true asset. Gandhi sets a goal for all of us which leads to a better life with simplicity, determination and hard work. Gandhi Jayanti is celebrated every year all over the country. The basic purpose is to make sure that our future generations learn from this great leader. They should try to adopt his habits. Learn from them and their lifestyle. Thank you all for hearing me out.
Have a nice day.
