Contest Theme

Mahatma Gandhi’s unique way of organisning protests, which originated in Africa has not only won freedom from colonialism for the world’s masses, but also inspired leaders across the world to embrace peaceful protests against oppression and misrule. The influence of his philosophy of non-violence is visible in all political movements since the beginning of the 20th century. The vision of freedom he envisaged, has inspired the world’s masses to rise up aganist any attempts by ‘authorities’ to curtail people’s free will. From Nelson Mandela to Martin Luther King, he has taught the world’s greatest leaders to give change a chance, and demonstrate the infinitesimal strength of non-violence to upturn injustice.
