Natwar Thakkar passed away
08 October 2018 Current Affairs:

Eminent Gandhian Natwar Thakkar passed away on 7th October 2018 due to his ill health. His efforts to spread Gandhian philosophy and peace had earned him the title 'Nagaland's Gandhi'. He was the founder of Nagaland Gandhi Ashram. He was honoured with the Padma Shri award.   
Mr.Thakkar had been chosen as a member of a committee constituted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the year-long celebration of Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary across the country. He went Nagaland from Maharashtra in 1955 when the movement for secession from India under the legendary Naga leader A.Z. Angami was gaining momentum. His Gandhian mission was viewed as a front for espionage by New Delhi and he was often told, at gunpoint, to leave the Naga domain. 
The Naga Hoho, the apex body of all tribes in Nagaland, mourned Mr.Thakkar’s death. Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio conveyed his condolence and said that Mr.Thakkar made significant contributions towards the betterment of society.
