A Revolution without Bloodshed (Gandhian Philosophy)

Francis Otole
Mahatma Gandhi had no match. 

His insistence
On nonviolent resistance
Made him venerable
Among the vulnerable.

Major role
Against colonial rule
Cutting foreign occupation short
Without a single shot.
A revolution without bloodshed
An evolution with no shot heard.

Global icon
In the nonviolent lexicon
Father of Nations
Beyond human imagination.
