“ Mahatma Gandhi ”

An old and simple man ,
Dressed in white ,
With a stick in hand ,
But the resolute credence glowed deep within !!

Non violence , was the path he preached ,
Believed in simplicity, lived in austerity ,
Wrapped in a dhoti and shawl , not an elaborate attire ,
Immense contentment he still attained !!

Harmony and morality he believed in ,
Countless times , when he had been put behind the bars ,
Fought to gain his right , but violence had never been a part of his fight ,
Satygrah , he followed , for the nation he was a star !!

The swadeshi movement ,
A warning for the British to quit the country ,
To Boycott the British goods ,
He himself spun the cloth ,
Evoked the spirit of freedom in the country’s heart !!

The Dandi March ,
He set off to make salt on the seaside ,
To stop the use of British goods ,
It instilled the strength and hope in the people!!

His morals can never be forgotten ,
Gandhian values are alive in all hearts ,
Peace , integrity and humanity ,
Are still the strength of the nation !!

He wanted all religions to unite ,
Live with harmony and respect ,
And never discriminate on the basis of black and white ,
Being an Indian , to always be our first religion !!

He gave his life , not for pride ,
Not for fame ,
But the humanity that lies all within ,
Just with a single call ,
Could he declare himself as the prime minister ,
But took the right decision for the country,
He is none other than the father of our nation !!

The father who united us all ,
The father because of whom we are free to breathe ,
The father who has left behind innumerable values ,
The father of every individual,
The father of the nation !!

Wishing you all a very happy GANDHI Jayanti!!

And wishing the second prime minster Mr. Lal Bahadur Shastri a very happy birthday… an unsung hero but a true super hero !
