Today marks what would have been Mahatma Gandhi's 146th birthday. As a national holiday in India, today our 600+ Network Operations Center (NOC) technicians observe Gandhi Jayanti, commemorating the life of a man who united a nation during the independence movement against a British-ruled India. A proponent of nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi taught us that we could still show our adversaries compassion and humanity, finding peace in a state of dystopia, while fighting for our rights and those of future generations globally. To celebrate along with our Mumbai team, we found five enlightening, iconic quotes from the champion of civil rights.

We'll be paying tribute to our 600+ NOC technicians all month long in celebration of NOCtober, but today we honor the selfless work of one of history's greatest leaders and peacemakers. We want to wish our Mumbai team and anyone else celebrating this event a happy holiday.
