2-10-2007 Centenary of Satyagraha the stirring Miniature sheet


Indian Post Office launched a commemorative miniature sheet on the occasion of the centenary of Satyagraha. Satyagraha is a way of life that guides the political activism practised by Satyagrahi followers. On the personal front, it involves a life committed to truth, purity, detachment, and hard work. The Satyagraha movement was started by Mahatma Gandhi in protest against the apartheid policy in South Africa. Mahatma Gandhi followed the path of Satyagraha and achieved success in the apartheid revolution of South Africa and protest against British rule. He had an instinctive belief that it would also be successful in India. Satyagraha started by Mahatma Gandhi is the unique weapon of the world.
