Gandhi – The Mahatma
by Vikram G Aarella
Bookmark and Share
  Latest to arrive, in the line of holy men
Your beginnings were very humble
No one knew the power within you then
You made the British Empire crumble.

Hard to imagine, a man like you lived
Two thousand years after Buddha's death
You poured life into his teachings and revived,
Non-Violence was your mantra, your strength.

Like every human being, while young
You did things that were really bad,
But soon realized that it was wrong
And corrected the evil mind you had.

Then dedicated your life for achieving freedom
For the ancient and richest country on the Earth,
Which was being humiliated and exploited by some
For patience and courage, in you there was no dearth.

You achieved freedom through Non-Violence
Empire came to its knees; and fell at your feet,
You forgave the sinners and taught us tolerance
Your coming on this earth has made our lives replete.
