picture for passivismThis is a special word that we are putting up today, on the 2nd of October. 2nd October, as we all know in India, is ‘Gandhi Jayanti’, in other words the birthday of India’s Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. In more than one ways, this day is symbolic of peace and tranquillity, and symbolized the basic ethos that Mahatma Gandhi stood for. Out of all the principles that he put forward, one that stood out was that of non-violence and passivism. In it, the form of protest he adopted was one of non-cooperation and civil disobedience. He fundamentally believed that all violence is unjustifiable; hence, the principle of passive resistance should be adopted.

This is the background for today’s special word: passivism. It is the doctrine of passive protest, a protest and resistance where violence is shunned and peaceful methods are adopted.
