Indian cricket team players Shikhar Dhawan and Ravichandran Ashwin paid their respective tributes to the 'father of the nation', Mahatma Gandhi on his birth anniversary. October 2 is celebrated as Gandhi Jayanti, every year. Gandhi was born on this day in the Porbandar city of Gujarat. Shikhar Dhawan took to Twitter and shared an inspirational quote of Mahatma Gandhi. "In a gentle way, you can shake the world. - Mahatma Gandhi #GandhiJayanti", he captioned.

India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, on the other hand, picked up truth and non-violence as two of the favourite qualities of Mahatma Gandhi.

Dhawan, who struggled in the Test series against England, had earlier failed to find a spot in the 15-member squad for the Windies series at home.

Meanwhile, Ashwin will be next seen on national duty in the first of two match Test series against the Windies, starting from Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.

Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif also paid his tribute to Mahatma Gandhi saying he inspires everyone.

Apart from being fondly known as the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi is also known as Bapu and Gandhi ji.
