There is no occasion for women to consider themselves subordinate or inferior to men....Woman is the companion of man, gifted with equal mental capacity....If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man's superior....If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with women...” but at the same time over 32 000 murders, 19 000 rapes, 7 500 dowry deaths and 36 500 molestation cases are the violent crimes reported in India in 2006 against women.

Mahatma Gandhi emphasised for a better system of education where one can evolve not only perception of livelihood but also the real life. On the other hand, a report, which was submitted to Journal of the European Economic Association, says that 25% of teachers were absent from school, and only about half were teaching, during unannounced visits to a nationally representative sample of government primary schools in India. Absence rates varied from 15% in Maharashtra to 42% in Jharkhand, with higher rates concentrated in the poorer states. They do not find that higher pay is associated with lower absence. Older teachers, more educated teachers, and head teachers are all paid more but are also more frequently absent; contract teachers are paid much less than regular teachers but have similar absence rates; and although relative teacher salaries are higher in poorer states, absence rates are also higher. Teachers from the local area have similar absence rates as teachers from outside the community. Locally controlled non-formal schools have higher absence rates than schools run by the state government. This is the real India and that is how we are making progress….walking on the footsteps of Gandhi ji? Save Gandhi or Save Legacy ?
Gandhi said "For me every ruler is alien that defies public opinion”. And at least hundreds of time the sovereign government of India had gone against public opinion. Save Gandhi or save legacy ?
Gandhi said “I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers”. And In India equality never existed: if you pray to Allah you have a different court and rule of justice and if you pray to Rama you have another way of justice; still the law of inheritance are based on religion. India had completely destroyed what Gandhi had thought once, now the whole population is divided among cast and creed and sex which opposes the national vibe on the force of Gandhi ji thoughts. Gandhi ji said “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ”. And all across India nowadays, conversion from one faith to another is a business of life. Save Gandhi or Save Legacy ?
Gandhi spent all his life for secularism but all governments since independence to now in India played a major role in bringing policy of favors to one sort of religion. Gandhi spent his whole life living within public living life as simple as possible staying on the places (even in palaces) like normal human being and here in his own country where several mouths are waiting to have food on their side, our president lives in this vast mansion which has got four floors and 340 rooms; apart from that president has two more mansions to live in other parts of India. Gandhi, the father of nation, who lived whole life as simple as one can be and this country has shown complete opposite to what India, or the Idea of India, Gandhi had. This was Gandhi, who never gave fervor to dynasty culture but right on his land, the party of Congress has been led mostly by only one Dynasty: NEHRU. What could be more fatal… Gandhi never liked the idea of Alcohol and even to save his belongings a king of liquor industry has to come…. OM SHANTI….. SHANTI OM Save Gandhi or Save Legacy?
It’s just the start of debate now, it will not stop and I ask all of you to come forward with a campaign Save Gandhi or save legacy ?
In the honor of the Great soul of India mahatma Gandhi
