The Living Legend!

Gandhi used Non-Violence and Truth to get freedom for India;
He utilized fasting as Non-Cooperation means against foreigners;
Simple living and high thinking measures made Gandhi a Mahatma!

Mahatma Gandhi is honoured in all the Currencies of India;
Sans village development, Indian economy can't be developed;
For, "India lives in her villages, " said Gandhi long, long ago to all!

Gandhi advised to start new political parties after freedom
For fair democratic development against corruption, casteism
And favouritism not to thrive in all walks of life of the nation ever!

"See not, hear not and speak not Evil things" are symbolized
Through Mahatma's Dolls of Monkey to the people forever;
Now Gandhi smiles from above as he does in all the Currencies!

So, Education without Character, Politics without Principles
And Freedom without Discipline cannot achieve his Dream;
Remembering this, let us honour Mahatma following his ideals!

Love is the Alchemy!
Uniting people of a nation following heterogeneous culture
Indeed is an impossible work possible only by a rare, great
Charismatic leader like Gandhi, who followed the means of
Nonviolence, a form of love to get independence for India!

Love is a kind of alchemy that only can turn even a baser
Metal into gold all are eager to grab if offered in public;
Such a feat only a mahatma like Gandhi can do in the world
Feel many a charismatic leader in the world even today sure!

Even for melting a stone of heart into nectar, a divine
Personality like Buddha or Jesus or Gandhi is needed in the
World as they only have the heart, mind and soul dedicated
And devoted to sway all by love that we all have to learn!

Total dedication and sense of sacrifice to the extent of
Do or die kind of resolution is needed to do great feat of
Common cause to unite and take all people to the route to
Achieve greatest benefit reasonable and justified by love!

The Secret
Of Gandhi’s Success!

What is the secret behind the success of Gandhi's
National freedom movement against foreign rule...?
He studied books to get inspiration and courage to
Deal with colossal movement against Imperial power!

Bhagavad Gita gave Gandhi to do duty sans expectation
With non-attached love for all in his great venture;
Emerson inspired him to live a simple life in harmony
With Nature in high thoughts expanding spiritual mood!

Greek philosopher Socrates give the idea of sacrifice
For truth and inspired him to follow do or die method;
Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace inspired him to do his war
Of Non-violence for his great freedom movement sure..!

Gandhi's religious political philosophy inspired and
Guided all people to do or die for national freedom!

Image Is Only A Mask!

Simplicity in thoughts, words and actions shows the
Actual nature of a man different from artificiality;
Artificiality comes of concoction to look to be not
The original but something designed to be better...!

Maintaining the artificial make up long is impossible
As when one is out of one's control, the nature of one's
Character shows one's head in the true colour that makes
All not to believe and consider one's gesture acceptable!

But the mask or image one has built up and maintained long
All believe but not the simple and natural originality of
One's appearance as the image has embedded in the minds of
All in such a way that no one believes one's original status!

Simplicity shows the originality and naturalness of one like
The great leaders such as Gandhi, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa;
But there are also leaders like Nehru or MGR or Hitler known
By their images they have created of themselves in the world!
