Mahatma Gandhi
January 30th - School Day of Peace and Non-Violence

The School Day of Peace and Non-Violence was first celebrated in 1964. It emerged from Spanish professor Llorenc Vidal’s non-governmental, independent and volunteer pioneer initiative, Non-Violent and Peaceful Education. Its objective is to educate for and about tolerance, solidarity, agreement and respect for Human Rights, non-violence and peace. On this day, primary and secondary schools turn into instruments of peace and understanding among people of distinct occupations, races, cultures and religions.

The basic message of this day is: “Universal Love, Non-Violence and Peace.”

Furthermore, January 30th commemorates the death of the national and spiritual leader of India, Mahatma Gandhi, who was shot and killed by a fanatical Hindu on January 30th, 1948.

  • Abstract: Images and pictures use lines, arcs, shapes, colours, textures... and you can not recognize the reality but emotions, dreams, feelings...

If realism is very very exaggerated, we have Hyper-realism:
