2019 will mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the man who led India in its fight for freedom. Born on 2nd October 1869, Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation, dedicated his whole life towards fighting for equality and freedom. He was a one-man-army who began a conscious search for non-violent possibilities to deal with a number of major national and international issues. His benevolent ways and persistence consequently changed the course of Indian as well as world history since he became an inspiration to many world leaders and freedom fighters including – Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela, Daisaku Ikeda and Petra Kelly.

To honour Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birthday, innumerable number of events are being organised in the country and abroad. One such celebration, a cycling event is taking place this month on 17th March 2019 in Hong Kong. So, keep yourself free this Sunday morning and join in at Holford Garden, Tai Wai. The event will commence at 8 am and will be concluded by around 10 am.

When she's not watching films or writing something cool and interesting, you'll find her doing makeup, shouting on the stylist, preparing her lines somewhere, in some studio of Mumbai (hint - she acts sometimes).
