The statues of Mahatma Gandhi are cleaned and decorated with garlands and flowers throughout India.

Tribute and Prayer Services

Although the tribute is given to Gandhi Ji and the prayer meetings are held all around the nation for memorizing Gandhiji, yet the tribute and prayer service at Gandhi Memorial Raj Ghaat remains the center of attraction in New Delhi where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated.

Observances and Celebrations

Gandhi Jayanti is observed in all the 27 states and 7 Union territories of India. These 36 Indian cities become one for observing the Gandhi Jayanti, revering the Father of Nation, Mahatma Gandhi.

Ceremonial Activities

Other than prayer services, many commemorative ceremonies and competitions are organized by officials in the Government institutions, colleges, schools, and socio-political organizations.

Among all the activities and competitions, the most famous one remains the essay competition and speech performances. Many kids take the appearance of Gandhi, wearing his dhoti and donning his no-hair hairstyle with a stick in the hand and spectacles on the nose.

The best representation is given the awards.

The artists also make paintings of Gandhiji.

People prepare plays, depicting him as the promoter of non-violence. Many portray him as a revolutionary icon that played one of the most important roles in the independence of India.

Dedication by Common People

The contribution of Gandhi Ji is significant not only as a freedom-fighter but also as a healthy lifestyle promoter. Those who learn about him through his biography or personal life’s events, they also avoid eating meat and drinking alcohol, as he supported in his own life.

The Song of the Day

Officials and kids do remember him singing his favorite bhajan lines “Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram”.
