New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Every year, January 30 is observed as Martyrs' Day or Shaheed Divas across the nation to observe the death anniversary of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, better known as Mahatma Gandhi or Bapu. In a gentle way, you can shake the world: This sentence by Mahatma Gandhi holds the same amount of power and meaning as it used to do years ago. From honesty to non-voilence, paths shown by Gandhi prove what importance the words ‘freedom’ and ‘peace’ have even in today’s world.
