Today we remember and pay homage to one of India’s greatest sons, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, now known simply as “Mahatma” (The Great Soul) Gandhi. He was born on October 2, 1869.

“My life is my message” said Gandhiji. His principle-centred leadership was exemplary for its simplicity, humility and practical application. Here was one man, who more than any other, was responsible for bringing to its knees the mighty British Empire.

I enjoyed the comprehensive account of Mahatma Gandhi at Kamat’s Potpourri. There is much to learn from Mahatma Gandhi.
