Mahatma Ghandi's Birthday
Ghandi's bithday is tomorrow October 2nd.
He got India independence from the Britishers by reinforcing "Non-Violence".
To commemorate his birthday, SUN TV (the tamil TV channel that is most popular in the US) is playing a recently released "Hit" movie titled "youth"
The trailer for this movie shows the hero threatening pretty much anyone and everyone who stands in his way with, you guessed it "VIOLENCE". Even the comedians in the movie seem to go around bashing people with sticks !!.
We might forget the fact that we got independence from a foreign country. Today's generation has been born in an independent country, and they take independence for granted..
We might even forget Ghandiji for having worked untiringly to get us the independence we enjoy.
But forgeting his message of "non-violence" and playing a violent movie to commemorate his birthday , tsk tsk !!!
