In a gentle way, you can shake the world – Essay #Gandhi

Be the change you want to see Gandhi read with Sara Bookosmia

“In a gentle way, you can shake the world,” Mahatma Gandhiji said.

 

The first  thing that strikes our mind when an occasion is arriving is how we will  celebrate it. When it comes to celebration the most important thing is a  grand party and magnificent gifts. Excess food from parties is wasted and  gifts exchanged which are usually of no use.

Only by reforming our ways of celebration, we could make an immense  change in the world. Instead of giving splendid gifts made of plastic we could  give a plant pot with a message to ‘start of new life’ or plant a sapling on  special occasions.

 

In this way we will not only be helping mother nature recover from the  exploitation we have forced on her but also be a good citizen and human  being. Instead of throwing a convivial party we could go to the orphanage or the old  age home and distribute cakes, gifts, and food.

 

This will show kindness to humanity and help others. Throwing a party does not mean we need to have a massive cake and decorations. Instead we could call our friends over to our house and laugh together, making joyful memories without fancy gifts. Instead of getting huge amounts of foods and drinks we  could learn how to bake one cake ourselves, with our friends and then enjoy it.

 

During festivals bursting expensive crackers only causes harm to others.  If we contribute the money spent on them to an NGO or another such organizations, we can help someone get food on their empty tables.

Let us blow away the cobwebs and make some new reforms in our life.

Together let us make these reforms and make this world a better place for all.
