New Delhi – The nation on Thursday paid homage to Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, on his 66th death anniversary.

Prominent leaders from various political parties and other dignitaries paid floral tributes at his Samadhi at Rajghat in the national capital.

A series of functions are being organized throughout the country to mark the occasion.

Mahatma Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869 in Porbandar. A lawyer by profession, Gandhi led the struggle for India’s independence from British rule by following the path of non-violence.

Ironically, Gandhi was shot dead by a Hindu fanatic, Nathuram Godse, at a prayer meeting in Delhi on January 30, 1948, less than a year after India became independent.

Gandhi is venerated throughout India as the ‘father of the nation’. His statues can be found across the country and nearly every town has at least one street named after him.

India observes Gandhi’s death anniversary as Martyrs’ Day in the memory of its freedom fighters.
