The Eternal Mahatma (Gandhian Philosophy)

Sherin Mary Zacharia
The world seeks a fine thread
to string together, the diverse beads.
A unique story is there to lead
for his nation’s freedom it did plead.
Keeping his strategies to become a model
unprecedented, unheard of, a bloodless battle.
Qualities to lead- honesty, willpower and punctuality;
amidst them stood tall ‘AHIMSA’ against all brutality.
When the pain of the common man is alleviated,
and his young child’s hunger banished,
Gandhi’s vision for his motherland is realised,
that for ordinary men and women; fulfilled.

A life by itself a message for all times
across the globe and across all climes.
His voice is for the oppressed,
he stood for the deprived and the discriminated.
He liberated the people from an empire; with no weapons
The Mahatma’s life amazes, around the world, millions.
