Mahatma Gandhi – The Father of the Nation
Mohandas Karam Chand Gandhi (known as Mahatma Gandhi) was not only a great politician but also a great social and religious leader. He declared that the highest form of service of the great mother was social service. He gave message of peace to the whole world and believe in humanity. He loved his countrymen very much so the nation called him Bapu — the Father of the Nation. Gandhiji’s main principles were truth and non-violence. He believed in universal brotherhood and love. He was of the opinion that if we had conflict with Englishmen, let us not hate the Englishmen because both Englishmen and Indians are offspring of the same Divinity. He respected all religions equally because he said essence of all religions is Truth. He advocated universal brotherhood over and above wavering loyalties to nations and religions. On January 30, 1948 he was shot dead by Nathu Ram Vinayak Godse in a prayer assembly at Birla House, Delhi. He was one of those great personalities who gave light to the world. So long as India lives and Indian freedom lives, the name of Gandhi will be remembered.
