Mahatma Gandhi is the great saint and the father of our Nation India


Mahatma Gandhi is the great saint and the father of our Nation India
Nathuram goadsay shot him dead, Gandhiji said in his last breath 'Ha-Ram',
Whole world sank in the ocean of shock on his death and news spread to media,
A holy human died on 30-01-1948 mostly for the unity of Hindu-Muslim,
Gandhiji walked all over India against british rule with a war of peace,
All Indian followed the foot steps of Mahatma Gandhi to get their freedom,
Many died for freedom and finally on 15th August 1947 India got independence,
Free Indians called happily 'Bharat-Mata-Ki-Jai, Mahatma Gandhi-Ki-Jai',
His mother Puthali Bai was a religious minded woman but he had a broad mind,
Bapuji loved almost all Indians as S.C.S.T., Hindu-Muslim and rich or poor,
Once a red barber of pritoria refused to cut his black hair with hatred and unkind,
He himself cut his own hair, lawyers joked and told him as 'rats have been it';
He washed and ironed his own clothes when he lived in South Africa and England,
He supported to Indian to get the power of vote in the Govt of South Africa,
He stayed 21 years in South Africa and 3 years in England as if his native land,
Foreigners respected him for his nature of simple living and high thinking,
After coming to India he taught his country men a lesson of humanity,
He tried to root out poverty, inequality and ill will among the people of India,
As Sathay Harischandra-Gandhiji said truth is God, he had faith in divinity,
He started his practice as a lawyer in Rajkoat without fees from poor and needy,
He was imprisoned by british Govt. for six years during his Sathya Girah movement,
He was put in Poona Yarwaad central jail and freed him after 2 years for his ill health,
Wherever he went he was arrested by the British from time to time and moment to moment,
He had a slogan 'to free India' for that he was disliked by the British Govt.,
Gandhiji did not like to separate our mother land into two territories,
It was India and it is India, before and after the Independence of India,
For political aims it is separated and made the citizens in tension and worries,
The citizens could have lived peacefully if India would have not been separated.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
