! Gandhi - Experiment With Truth

Rating: 3.3

Boiling sea water, lumps of salt
salt of freedom,
flavor of decades

sixty years plus... aged and tired
free not in mind

Do you know?

Yes.. Yes..Yes..!

Gandhi my father
Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi....

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Mahatma Gandhi father of the Nation
Mohandas.... Gandhi.. who?

half naked fakir in loin drape
struggle, salt
non cooperation
non violence
Yerwada Jail,
division, bloodshed
midnight’s freedom
fruit – bitter sweet

At the end
a fanatic
shot and killed Gandhi
Hey Ram, a prayer...

Experiment with truth- bitter?

Experimentation with truth is a continuous process which can't change the impact of truth even if one isn't alive in flesh and blood and the fanatic who killed Gandhiji wasn't able to kill the philosophy of Truth which holds true till today. Lovely topic to write about. It feels so nice to know that people in today's world still do remember things he achieved.

Yet, even now Gandhi smiles in the Currency Notes seeing all these things! Indeed Gandhi spirit is needed everywhere now!

Gandhi is an embodiment of pain and stoic endurance. please read my poem 2020, and compare ramarajya and a nation after the nuclear deal.

If ever a person was worth his 'salt' it was Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. His belief in non-violence and truth whilst living a modest and self-sufficient life must be a worthy beacon to all. Indeed a fitting tribute to a great man. Rgds, Ivan

truth is bitter n the experiments naturally are more bitter...doesn't 'my experiments...' reveal that?
