World’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa in Dubai lit up with photographs of Mahatma Gandhi on the occasion of his 150th birth anniversary. The official Twitter handle of Burj Khalifa posted a one-minute video with a tune of ‘Vaishnava Jana To’ – Gandhi’s favourite bhajan – playing in the background.

Check out the video here:

The video started with lights creating India’s national flag. The tricolour then changed into an image of smiling Gandhi. The video ends with Bapu’s image flashed within the Indian flag.

Not many know this but October 2 is also celebrated across the world as ‘International Day of Non-violence’. At the United Nations headquarters an event took place on “climate action: Gandhian way”.
