The nation is gearing up to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. But yeh hashtag ki duniya hai! In today’s world, for some, Bapu sehat ke liye hanikarak hai.

So let us remind them that Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi wasn’t just a freedom fighter. He was the OG ‘Father of Nation’. His satyagrahs – be it in Dandi or Champaran – added a swagger to India’s freedom struggle.

His writings in papers like Harijan united our people against common enemies: Be it British imperialism or social divisions based on caste, creed and religion.

So, as a gift to Bapu, The Quint has decided to Insta-fy his #NotSoBasic life, because #MahAtmaMahRules.
