The Gohel family of Porbandar is pleased to bring
to you this website http://www.GandhiBapu.com
dedicated to our Mahatma, the Apostle of Peace and Non-violence
on Gandhi Jayanti October 2, 2001.
Our mission is to promote Gandhian thoughts and principles of truth
and non-violence for world peace. This modern world needs no more
destructive weapons, but rather needs more people like Gandhiji,
who follow the path of non-violence, to bring peace to everyone.
We are dedicated to bringing you the wisdom of Vedic Bharat through
our patriotic web portal http://www.VandeMataram.com
and to the Gandhian times through this website http://www.GandhiBapu.com.
Indians will remember Gandhiji for bringing them freedom from the
British. The world will remember Gandhi Bapu for showing humanity
that the truth of peaceful living is rooted inside the ancient Vedic
principle of non-violence. The world is like a family, and we must
all learn to live peacefully regardless of who we are. That is the
simple, yet Universal Truth, that Gandhiji revealed to us!
Out of humility, he said "I have nothing new to teach to the
world. Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills." He
was once asked by a reporter, "Bapu, give me your message for
the people." Bapu hastily uttered from a moving train, "My
life is my message".
This web portal reflects Gandhiji's life and message to the world.
A Word of Thanks
Our heartfelt appreciation to the IT team who have created and
designed this website with love and sincerity. The praise and appreciation
of their devotion to this cause will be reflected in Bapus
We thank everyone who has helped us with providing content for
this website. The help provided by Kirti Mandir staff in our home
town Sudamapuri (known as Porbandar, Bapus birthplace) has
turned this website into reality.
Our thanks to the late Shri Nanjibhai Kalidas Mehta and his family
for building the magnificent Gandhi memorial called Kirti Mandir.
Also, special thanks to Kirti Mandir Sanchalan Committee and the
Navajivan Trust of Gujarat State for keeping the spirit of Gandhian
thoughts and love flow through the walls of this great monument
and for publishing Gandhijis literature.
I want to thank my parents, the late Shri Jagdevbhai Harjibhai
Gohel and late Shrimati Vasumatiben Gohel. They taught me the essence
of human life that the world is a drama: you do your good part and
others will do theirs. In the service of the One, learn to live
for the benefit of others. Believe that everything happens not just
for a reason but only for good reasons. Always feel and think positive
so only pure vibrations emit from you.
My deepest gratitude also goes to my grandparents, late Shri Harjibhai
Hirabhai Gohel and late Shrimati Jiviben for nurturing me with Gandhian
thoughts during my early years. They showed me how fulfilling it
is for the soul by caring for poor people. Accumulate blessings
by doing good deeds because that is the only thing comes with you
and nothing else. What you see is all destructible and what you
do not see is in-destructible. Therefore, concentrate and work to
please your inner being instead of your outer being.
My deepest gratitude is also due to my uncle, Dr. Pratap Gohel,
for leading my family in Porbandar with the same divine principles
of serving others without expectations. His dedication to serve
the poor and needy in many ways and by providing free medical services
every Saturday is very inspiring for the young and old members in
my family and for others. With his leadership and support, the Gohel
familys mission of Jann Seva (selfless community services)
continues till this day with a family motto to do something
better for the benefit of others.
Finally, I would like to thank my wife and children for putting
up with my endless sleepless nights during my life long mission
of serving others as I created www.VandeMataram.com
and for supporting me in this selfless endeavor.
The Gohel family of Porbandar paid a tribute to Gandhiji through

In this e-commerce website, you will find books and products related
to Gandhian thoughts for the benefit of individuals, societies,
and the world. In this age, let Bapus message of truth and
non-violence, the voice of citizens ring through Bapus birthplace
Porbandar, popularly known as the crime capital of Gujarat.
Profits from the sale of goods through www.GandhiMall.com
website will be used for propagating Bapus message of truth
and non-violence around the world for the benefit of humanity.
We dedicate this website to our Gandhi Bapu and to the Godly people
who Bapu lovingly called Harijans. Let us change ourselves by rooting
out untouchability that has no trace in our Vedic dharma or in Indian
constitution. We all know what it feels like to live in a discriminatory
world of politics and religion. Let us remember that we are all
Godly people of one sacred nation, Bharat.
