Apostle Of Peace - Poem by Rajeev Moothedath

Born and died in India
yet left his mark
on nations many
South Africa, America
Myanmar & many more...

Many free thinkers inspired
by this nonviolent Mahatma
his methods impacting work
of King, Mandela, Suukyi..

A lot of the teachings of apostle
trace back to the land of birth
the cradle of spirituality
where blossomed Gurus like
Ramakrishna, Ramana, Sree narayana..

Time overdue to reaffirm & declare
the great message-
'Vasudeva kutumbakam'
a single global family..

Time long overdue
for the world to pay heed
to the words of the apostle
the apostle of peace!

    Indeed, Mahatma Gandhi was an apostle of peace. A Great Peace Warrior who fought diligently for Indian Independence in non violent way. Respected world over for his clarion call for Universal Brotherhood Of Man. A beautiful tribute to him. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
