Dassera and Gandhi Jayanti - coincidence?

Isn't it a coincidence that Dassera and Gandhi Jayanti falling on the same day. One talks of overcoming evil and the other talks about truth and nonviolence. Both of them have the same message encapsulated in a different way.

Also, isn't it a coincidence, that suddenly the Mahatma has found a voice amongst the youth thanks to the masterly - Lage Raho Munnabhai.I would like to believe that its providence and not a mere coincidence.

Here's wishing you all a Happy Daseera and Gandhi Jayanti. And with this I leave lines of a song from Swades

Dekh taj ke paap raavan, raam tere mann mein hai
Raam tere mann mein hai, raam mere mann mein hai
Raam toh ghar ghar mein har, raam har aangan mein hai
Mannse raavan jo nikaale, raam uske mann mein hai

Its time we burn down the "Raavan" within us.

Remember a movie called "Dil Toh Pagal Hai"? It shows Madhuri Dixit's character linking Valentine's Day with Poornima (Full Moon Day).

You linking Dussehra and Gandhi Jayanti is not so different from that.

Nice lines from the movie though.

October 2nd was the 136th Gandhi Jayanti, the celebration of Gandhi’s birthday.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in 1869 and is most famous for leading India

to independence through a nonviolent revolution. A follower of Tolstoy’s philosophy

of nonviolence, Gandhi went on to become one of the most famous and important

persons in modern history. Though we should celebrate this hero of peace every day,

his birthday is a good enough time to remember him, what he stood for, and what he
