Humanism Day was held through the Freethought Party of India (FPI) and the AMOFOI on the birthday of the former Prime MInister Rajiv Gandhi. It is the 5th death anniversary of Dr. Narendra Dabholkar.

It was celebrated on August 20th to highlight the successes of science and the values of humanism. The General Secretary of the FPI noted Rajiv Gandhi was a great humanist and had a high level of lifelong dedication to the scientific perspective on the world discovered through the methodologies of science.

He had Sam Pitroda from the United States of America, a prominent telecom engineer, come to India in order to advance the telecommunications industries and kickstart the revolution in India.
