Why Black People Respect Mahatma Gandhi Too Much?

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in Porbandar, India to a Hindu family on 2 October 1869. He was the child of Karamchand Gandhi Putlibai. He got his early schooling near Rajkot, where his father served as the adviser. At the age of 13, Gandhi was married to Kasturba. Due to his continuous efforts and struggle for the independence of the nation, people address him as the father of the nation or Mahatma Gandhi.

Mahatma Gandhi went to England in the year 1888 to get a degree in law. He spent three years in London and completed his degree at the Inner Temple. Only after 1 year of his enrolment in High Court of London, he left for India. Later he represented an Indian business firm situated in the Transvaal, South Africa.

Gandhi in South Africa

Mahatma Gandhi visited Durban in 1893 to serve as legal counsel to a merchant Dada Abdulla. The first encounter of discrimination faced by him was when he was traveling through a train from Pretoria with a first class ticket. He was pushed out off the train by force simply because non-white was not allowed in the first class compartment.

When Gandhi opposes this, he was pushed out from the train with his luggage thrown away. It was the movement when he faced the dilemma whether he should return to India or fight for this injustice with colored people. He realized that it his duty to fight for this cause as the next day journey was even more humiliating for him.

He was made to sit with the coachman on the box outside separating him from the white passengers inside the train. On this day, he was physically assaulted by the conductor of the train as Mahatma Gandhi refused to give him his seat.

Within a month of his arrival, Mahatma Gandhi made his first public speech making truthfulness and non-violence the key perspectives of his fight against injustice. The meeting was organized to make Indian residents oppose the discrimination done with them.

South Africa, at that moment, was a growing national, ruled by white authorities in the majority. The discrimination against the Indians is similar to other non-white people of the county. Mahatma Gandhi’s fight against colour based discrimination makes him a beloved leader by Indian and other citizens of the country who are willing for equality.

By 1896, Mahatma Gandhi has become a political leader in South Africa fighting against the injustice of his policy of non-violence. This year only, he took a trip to India to ignite a protest campaign on behalf of Indians in South Africa. His mission caused the great uproar in India and hurt the British authorities in England and Natal badly. Gandhi’s efforts had pressurized the British Government enough to block the Franchise Bill in an unprecedented move.

The introduction of Transvaal Asiatic Law Amendment Ordinance forces all Indians in the Transvaal to carry an authorization document along with other coercive measures. Mahatma Gandhi protests against this act with 3,000 Indians in the year 1906 which give birth to his whistleblowing ‘satyagraha’ campaign.

The Indian community followed Gandhi’s plan and fought against the Act for a period of over six years in which, hundreds of Indians were brutally suppressed and put into jail because they were following non-violent forms of resistance.

Mahatma Gandhi led another march with mine workers in 1913 to protest against the tax imposed on formerly indentured laborers and he was arrested. You can check all about in Mahatma Gandhi biography.  As soon as he got the bail, he joined the movement again without afraid of being arrested. His dedication and courage to continue the path of non-violence make the officials drop the Indian Relief Bill.

Thailand’s King Marries Suthida

It’s hard to believe that 66-year-old Thailand’s king Maha Vajiralongkorn has married the deputy commander of his personal bodyguard unit, Suthida who is 40-years old. Yes! It’s shocking but it’s true. Not only marrying her, but he also gave her the very royal title ‘Queen Suthida Vajiralongkorn Na Ayudhaya’.

Suthida is expected to participate in some of the coronation events. She was born on June 3, 1978, as Suthida Tidjai. She has graduated from Assumption University which is a private university in Bangkok with a bachelor’s degree in arts and communication in the year 2000, as per the media sources.

Earlier, before marrying the Thai King, she used to work as a flight attendant at Thai Airways before joining the protection unit of King Maha Prince Vajiralongkorn.

In addition, she also held the rank of general in the Royal Thai Army before tying the knot with the king. After that, she got promoted to some higher position in December 2016 by King Vajiralongkorn by royal decree shortly after he took the throne following his father’s death, King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Suthida was also once deputy commander of the King’s Own Bodyguard Regiment of which king himself is the commander of the whole unit.

It was he who designated queen Suthida to the special officer unit of Crown Prince’s Bodyguard Regiment in the year 2013.

The royal queen of Thailand Suthida has also been awarded by 20 royal decrees for her honesty, loyalty and responsibility shown in her service to Prince Vajiralongkorn.

She received the award from King Bhumibol who is the father of the king. After getting the royal decree she was named as Lieutenant Colonel Suthida Vajiralongkorn.

Surely, this wedding is a big surprise to all of Thai’s because they never expected this kind of sweet relationship before in their life previously despite the fact that King has been married and got divorced three times earlier before getting married to Suthida.

Meet Dyan deNapoli, The “Ultimate Penguin Lady” Who Saved The Life of 20,000 Penguins During Great Penguin Rescue

Dyan deNapoli, The Ultimate Penguin Lady

Every year on April 25, World Penguin Day is celebrated all over the globe. This day presents a good opportunity to provide awareness about the penguin species and the challenges that they face for their survival including retreating polar ice and depleting stocks of krill.

In honour of this great occasion, Dyan deNapoli who is popularly known as “The Penguin Lady” tells us about her hard work that she did in saving the lives of nearly 20,000 penguins during a rescue operation that took 20 years ago.

All the penguins were transported safely after a massive oil spill from the bulk carrier Treasure north of Cape Town, South Africa during 2 July 2000. Not only this, but she has also explained about her experience of saving so many birds during this rescue operation and what all did she faced during this phase.

Now, let me tell you about her ‘Penguin Rescue’ experience:

It was during summers of 2000 when she has got an urgent call from South Africa from the manager of SANCCOB, a seabird rescue centre in South Africa, Cape Town. The manager told that the Penguins were in trouble due to the oil spill happened in the region due to the sinking off a cargo ship in the ocean off the coast in Cape Town.

Nearly 1300 tons of fuel oil flown into Robben Island which is the primary habit of penguins. The oil has covered 20,000 penguins.

It was after that SANCCOB has announced the launch to carry out a rescue operation to save the life of all the penguins that were badly oiled by the thick and toxic oil. Even, there were 1000s of volunteers who were up for help but they couldn’t d anything as they had no experience.

After 2 days, she boarded the plane to South Africa to take part in this biggest ever Penguin Rescue operation.

A large warehouse had been converted into a rescue centre for the oiled penguins outside the Cape Town. The rescuers had also set up so many makeup shift pools which had the ability to hold 100 oiled birds at once.

She told when she stepped into the building, she couldn’t believe what she saw there. Nothing except the voices of people she could hear. The penguins were like dead silent. At that moment, she felt so much overwhelmed.

Her heart ached for those distressed birds and cleaning them looked like an almost neatly impossible task at that moment. But, all the volunteers including her were treating them like doctors in an emergency room.

Cleaning them wasn’t easy. The birds were sprayed with a degreaser and scrubbed with warm, soapy water. Then they were rinsed under a hose. Almost it took around an hour to go through the whole process. Do you know it took a month to bathe all the 20,000 birds at the centre in spite of having 12,500 volunteers?

The oil spill began to spread which led to another crisis

Oil from the spill had started to spread north towards Dassen Island. It had become almost impossible to save a number of birds as they already have 20,000 penguins in their hand. This is because they do not have enough resource to save them.

To move out of the situation, one researcher suggested moving all the penguins from Dassen Island to Port Elizabeth. And you know what the plan worked and all the penguins swam home safely which also removed their oil and they were saved luckily.

It was one of the biggest ever penguin rescue operation in history

The entire penguin rescue operation took almost 3 months. It was hard for them to believe that they have managed to save such a huge number of birds from such a horrible incident. What was most inspiring for me was the hard work of volunteers.

She said, “As the Penguin Lady, I’m used to facing such hazards to care for the animals I love. What I didn’t realize was how many other people care for penguins too”.
