Is Mahatma Gandhi An Incarnation?-Prana Kishore
The British won all the wars around the world and finally lost the 200 year old battle to an old man of 78 yrs, with partial clothes, with no gun, and who only walked with a wooden stick
Every Year passes by and the people of India celebrate Indian Independence day on 15th Aug and Republic day on 26th Jan.
The next generation needs to know how India got its independence from the then British now Great Britain (UK).
The politicians need to be reminded again about the sacrifices made by Shri Mahatma Gandhi, and why he was called Father Of Our Nation or Mahatma or lovingly Bapu.
Lets step back and analyze “Why Did Mahatma get involved in the freedom struggle?” What did he personally gain?
Here are few facts about Gandhi.
No one told him to get involved, He took upon the task himself
He left his successful profession as Attorney for this struggle
He is not the leader of any political party
He does not belong to any organization
He is not the leader of any army
He does not own any property
He does not have a property will
He did not gain anything personally and he even lost his wife.
He was beaten up, humiliated and jailed many times
He did everything to get freedom for India and Pakistan.

O beloved, praise Sita and Rama,
God or Allah is your name,
May God bless all with true wisdom.
Albert Einstein said on Gandhijis 70th Birthday : “Generations to come, it may well be, will scarce believe that such a man as this one ever in flesh and blood walked upon this Earth.”
This is true. We are yet to see an honest man like Gandhi anywhere in the world even today
Mahatma Gandhiji considered Bhagavad Gita as his mother.He looked for solutions during the period of the struggle from Bhagavad Gita.
His Last words were “Hey Ram”
May the life of Gandhi, Invoke the Gandhi in you and be your Satyagraha movement from today to practice Truth in your life for inner Peace and World Peace
Gandhi did not gain anything personally except win the freedom for India and Pakistan
Gandhiji Favorite song Raghupathy Raghava lyrics by Lakshmanacharya from Sri Rama Ramayanam music composed originally by Vishnu Digambar Paluskar, considers Gita as his mother, his last words are Hey Ram and all his quotes,work,concepts, life ,are unique which can be applied even today after 100years.He lived like a sanyasi with the courage of a God and eradicated the Ravanas the British only to give back the Freedom like Vaikunta for India
