Organiser : The Loomba Foundation
The Loomba Foundation hosted a dinner in the famous Attlee Room at the House of Lords to celebrate the 150th birthday of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, which actually took place on the 2nd October, a day recognised by the United Nations to honour this great world leader. Her Excellency Mrs. Ruchi Ghanashyam, High Commissioner for India, was a Chief Guest at the event.
He is referred to as Bapu Ji or the ‘Father of the Nation’ in India because of the profound effect he had on our country and the way he conducted the freedom movement to gain independence for India and the Indian people from the British colonial rulers through peace and Non-Violence. He inspired many world leaders, including Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela and is known today as an apostle of peace and Non-Violence and often called Mahatma Gandhi.
