It gives us a great pleasure to bring to you the website
dedicated to our Mahatma, the Apostle of Peace and Non-Violence, on Gandhi
Jayanti Oct.2, 2001
Our mission is to promote Gandhian thoughts and principles
of Truth and Non-violence for the world peace. This
modern world needs no more destructive weapons. Instead,
it is craving for people like Gandhiji, who will lead
the path of Non-violence to bring peace to the world.
Nodefect Team is dedicated to bringing you the wisdom
of Vedic Bharat through its website Vandemataram.com,
and to the Gandhian times through this website GandhiBapu.com.
Indians will remember Gandhiji for bringing them freedom
from the Britishers. The world will remember him for
that the truth of peaceful living is rooted inside
the ancient Vedic principle of non-violence. The entire
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 has 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
This website mirrors Bapu's life and message. The only
difference is that here its not just one reporter but the entire world
is our audience. For world peace, we are doing our part as the citizen
of Mother India, and we urge you to do your part after reading this message.
Unity will bring Peace on Earth and that is our message to you from Nodefect
family to your family.
My heartfelt thanks to the entire Nodefect team who have
created and designed this site with love and devotion is unforgettable.
I am proud to have such a great team of people. The same team who created
Vandemataram.com has done it again ! The praise and appreciation of their
devotion to this cause will soon mirror in Bapu's Guest Book.
My Special Thanks:
I thank all the people, authors,
and publishers who have helped us in providing the
content for this site. The help provided by Kirti
Mandir staff at my home town Sudamapur (now known
as Porbandar) has made this site turn into a reality.
The pictures of Kirti Mandir are the most recent ones
that I took last year. And last but not the least,
I want to thank my parents Shri Jagdev & Smt. Vasumati.
They showed me the basics of life that this world
is a drama, you do your part and others will do theirs
! Their simple lesson has given me full happiness
in my life without a trace of sorrow .
Now I see good in every happening.
My deepest gratitude goes to my grandparents, late
Shri Harji and late Smt. Jiviben for nurturing me
with Gandhian thoughts during my early life. They
showed me what caring for poor people means to the
soul ! Also, thanks to my wife and kids for putting
up with me with endless sleepless nights while creating
Vandemataram.com and Gandhibapu.com, and ofcourse
to my entire Gohil family in Porbandar, India and
in USA for supporting me in this unselfish endeavor.
My thanks to the late Shri Nanjibhai
Kalidas Mehta for buiding the magnificent Gandhi memorial
(Kirti Mandir) , and his family's unconditional support
in maintaining this memorial since the past 51 years.
Also, special thanks to Kirti Mandir Sanchalan Committee
of Gujarat State for allowing the spirit of Gandhian
love flow through the walls of this great monument.
This site is dedicated to our Gandhi Bapu, but I also
want to take one step further and dedicate this site
to the Godly people who Bapu lovingly called Harijans
or the Dalits. Let us change ourselves and make Bapu
proud of all of us by removing untouchability from
the face of our Mother Earth.
We all know what it feels like to live in a discriminatory
world. Let us not forget , we are all Godly people of the sacred nation
