Today world celebrates Mahatma Gandhi's Jayanthi (birth anniversary)!

For those who are unaware of who Mahatma Gandhi is, he is the one who successfully brought freedom to India in 1947 through nonviolent protests, hunger strikes and peaceful negotiations!

Through out his celebrated life he followed the principles of DON'T DO, HEAR OR FOLLOW anything that is harmful to others. In this day and age where Internet is the king of communication and where daily battles are fought online, we can safely adapt his beliefs to DON'T TYPE, LIKE, OR SHARE anything that is harmful to others! Agree?
