INSPIRATION FOR THE BRAVE
Mahatma Gandhi is the pioneer of the philosophy and strategy of non-violence. His birthday, 2 October, is celebrated as the International Day of Non-Violence. According to the UN General Assembly resolution A/RES/61/271 of 15 June 2007, this day is an occasion to "disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness". The resolution reaffirms "the universal relevance of the principle of non-violence" and the desire "to secure a culture of peace, tolerance, understanding and non-violence".
