Gandhi Jayanti - Let Us Make The World A Better Living Space


I remember Gandhi
For one important quality
He was sincere to himself
To his policies and principles
We are sincere to others
We are faithful to others
We are truthful to others
We miss not opportunities
To demonstrate our
Sincerity
Faith
Truthfulness to others
Many will not disagree
All these we do for
Some personal motives behind
Hidden and unexpressed
Gandhi was different
He loved, cared others
But was sincere, faithful and truthful to self
He was religiously spiritual but never a fanatic
He made non-violence
A mandatory requirement for leadership
Non-violence in thought, words and deed
Is what he preached
And practiced
If the human race follow some, even if not all, of his preaching
The world would be free of
Great number problems it is presently facing
Gandhi, though born before years one hundred forty four
And departed before years sixty five
Is becoming relevant more than ever before
Let us all explore within
And discover in each of us
A miniature of Gandhi
Practise his principles
Make the world
A better living place

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
