! 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...

those who take the path less travelled, have strength of their convictions. Gandhi's experiments with truth lead to his death, but i guess he had no regrets. people on a mission do not care about consequences. Rema good reminder of his life and travails. Mamta

End is inevitable, sweetness is hackneyed, those who taste bitter stand away from crowd, here the experiment though bitter is paradoxically sweet…thought provoking piece …. Abha

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
