Happy Birthday, Bapu!

today is Gandhi's birthday. he would've been 140 years old today had he not been assassinated in 1948. i personally believe he could've lived that long. his birthday in India is regarded as a national holiday and is also recognized as the international day of non-violence throughout the world.
he has always remained a constant source of inspiration for me and i've tried to make it a point to educate myself on his life, principles and struggles. if you have never done so, i urge you to do the same. you too may pick up something from Gandhi that you may put into practice in your daily life. that said, i leave you all with one of my favorite quotes:

"an ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching"
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

peace, love and bike rides...
