I don’t think many among us follow peaceful principals of Gandhi anymore sadly. Certain majority groups’ (and even common ppl) take his name and only mentions outside India proudly as chest thumping moment but back home they celebrate his murderer as hero and degrades the father of the nation. 
This has become very common even DD news was whitewashing godse yesterday!https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/662668/medium/20210111_210559.jpg?1612064542

(even otherwise, the things on record, spoken by Godse had earlier impacted me, but later on … i discarded a lot of it).
We anointed him as the father of the nation.
but his own son, Harilal called out his charade.
and the incident/s of ‘Bapu’ (quite literally) shutting the doors on Harilal (doors and windows, in case of the train halt) are well documented, known.

(Harilal, in so far as i understand, did not convert for spiritual reasons, but just to call out the sham of ‘Bapu’ having open arms for all. Sadly, Harilal proved his point beyond doubt).

not trying to deride.
on paper, a lot of what he claimed to stand for makes sense.
but it too is a fact, that ours probably was the only independence that saw unprecedented bloodshed, mayhem after😔 independence.
at the hands of, not the oppressors, but our own people.

and for what😔?

I think the fake aura created around Gandhi by Congress is fast vanishing in the SM era.

People are now aware of his real deeds and the Indians have already suffered alot.

It’s time to judge him for his real acts.

anyway, he was what he was. He did (or failed to do) what he did. History is history.
and talking about fakirs (then 😔AND NOW😔) can only cause derailment of sensible conversations, if at all anyone is even mildly critical.
So i will let it rest here.
(avoiding to comment on how after WWII even the Belgians vacated DRC.. and Empire vacated most of Asia.
avoiding because there is nothing to credit/ discredit the complex mix of situations, armed revolt, pauper treasury of the empire, alleged peaceful revolt).

And people were trending nathu godse amar rahe yesterday.
One can love him or hate him but making a mockery of a dead person sucks and the largest party in this country is doing the same. Good luck to development.
P.S. Congress sucks too jumla gang.

Just a thought, Why Subhas Chandra Bose not getting respect as Gandhiji getting?
when i see some top leaders’ tweet, they never rememeber Subhas Chandra Bose or Sardar Patel or any other respected freedom fighter but always remember Gandhiji.
Even our history books have very less space for them.

Congress in early times did great in development jobs throughout the country and same in my state too.
But for the last few decades, the later ones joined with only profit motives and simply not doing anything even against criminals within their parties or from other parties.
So now contributed to the current rotten state and members running from one party to another (wherever there’s 💰 ) without any shame and integrity.
P.S. blaming/criticizing one party doesn’t mean I like opposition/other parties.
I don’t have any favorites.

Because Shri Subhas Chandra Bose joined hands with Nazis n Japanese. When India got liberated, it inclined towards Soviet Union for support. Probably for diplomatic reasons, with Soviet n allied nations, Shri Bose got sidelined.
India got independence during Gandhiji’s involvement, that’s why we remember him the most.
It’s same like, construction workers make a temple. The God is remembered, the king under whom the construction began is remembered, but nobody remembers the workers. But without construction workers there won’t be any temple.
The same works everywhere. E=MC2 is proposed by Einstein. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/was-... But that’s wrong. A lot of people contributed to it. JJ Thomson, Poincaré, Hasenöhrl, Poynting ( @MrKool_JJ remember, Poynting vector 🐒???) etc are noteworthy people, who contributed to it. But E=MC2 is remembered by Einstein.
See, whatever we see, there are a lot of sweat n blood behind them. If those people wanted fame then they would have just stopped their works after feeling unrecognised. But they did their work. Fame can be obtained by anyone. But everybody involved were important.
We remember Gandhiji, that does not mean we don’t remember Lalaji, Sardarji, Subhasji etc. Those people have become bricks in the foundation of this great country.

Quotes by famous personalities in Gandhiji.
My personal favourite is that of Einstein.

  • Barack Obama (former President of US)
    It was Gandhi’s understanding of India’s stories and traditions, his attention to the marginalised voices in Africa that helped him gather a movement that drove out the world’s most successful empire.
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. (civil rights activist)
    From my background I gained my regulating Christian ideals. From Gandhi, I learned my operational technique.
  • Nelson Mandela (former president of South Africa)
    Gandhi’s magnificent example of personal sacrifice and dedication in the face of oppression was one of his many legacies to our country and to the world. He showed us that it was necessary to brave imprisonment if truth and justice were to triumph over evil. The values of tolerance, mutual respect and unity for which he stood and acted had a profound influence on our liberation movement, and on my own thinking. They inspire us today in our efforts of reconciliation and nation-building.
  • Albert Einstein (scientist)
    Generations to come, it may well be, will scarce believe that such a man as this one ever in flesh and blood walked upon this Earth.
  • Steve Jobs (co-founder of Apple)
    Mohandas Gandhi is my choice for the Person of the Century because he showed us the way out of the destructive side of our human nature. Gandhi demonstrated that we can force change and justice through moral acts of aggression instead of physical acts of aggression. Never has our species needed this wisdom more.
  • Ho Chi Minh (former President of Vietnam)
    I and others may be revolutionaries but we are disciples of Mahatma Gandhi, directly or indirectly, nothing more nothing less
  • Lord Richard Attenborough (filmmaker)
    When asked what attribute he most admired in human nature, Mahatma Gandhi replied, simply and immediately, ‘Courage’. ‘Nonviolence’, he said, ’is not to be used ever as the shield of the coward. It is the weapon of the brave.
  • Dalai Lama (spiritual leader)
    I have the greatest admiration and respect for Mahatma Gandhi. He was a great human being with a deep understanding of human nature. He made every effort to encourage the full development of the positive aspects of the human potential and to reduce or restrain the negative.

“Just before the partition, both Hindu and Sikh women were being raped by the Muslims in large numbers. Gandhi advised them that if a Muslim expressed his desire to rape a Hindu or a Sikh lady, she should never refuse him but cooperate with him. She should lie down like a dead with her tongue in between her teeth. Thus the rapist Muslim will be satisfied soon and sooner he leave her. (D Lapierre and L Collins, Freedom at Midnight, Vikas, 1997, p-479).”

Such a “MAHATMA” indeed.😭😭

You didn’t get my point. If I hadn’t mentioned that line bhakts would have started posted against me. The whole political system in this country is pathetic.
