World Compassion Day

World Compassion Day is an annual observance held on November 28. It was founded in 2012 by Pritish Nandy, an Indian poet, journalist, film producer, media and television personality, politician, and activist. The event is organized by Pritish Nandy International.

World Compassion Day is based on the concept of ahimsa. It means non-violence, non-injury or absence of desire to harm any life forms. Ahimsa originated in Jainism, an Indian religion. It is an important principle in several more religions such as Buddhism, Sikhism, and Hinduism. Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy of non-violence was profoundly influenced by ahimsa. No wonder World Compassion Say (WCD) originated in India.
