Remembering Gandhi on his death anniversary

Thursday - January 31, 2019 5:53 am , Category : WTN SPECIAL

WTN: The role of Mahatma Gandhi in the making of modern India through his overpowering influence on the people of the country can’t be any overstated. His role in India’s freedom struggle is immense, but his role as a leader of the masses is more memorable and have a more far reaching implication.

Gandhi ji may also be one of the most vilified and pilloried leaders of India’s Independence movement, specially seen from the prism of today’s political and global scenario, but no one can doubt that he dominates the discourse of the freedom movement and stands out as the tallest leader who could mobilise people for a cause like no one else. His bearing, his austerity and his wit are awe-inspiring. His political principles and ethics which he doggedly stuck to are specimens of statesmanship which are imbibed globally.

Many of his philosophies may seem absurd or ineffective today, but the greatness of the man lies in his conviction in the faiths and beliefs he endorsed and how effectively he leveraged them for greater political gains. That is why almost all his moves generated mass appeal and most people wholeheartedly supported him in his pursuits. People had immense faith in what Gandhi did and this doesn’t come easily unless one leads an exemplary life with his speech, conduct and values and has the courage to accept those values with pride, right or wrong. India badly needed a leader of national acceptance who could raise a front before the British domination.

Gandhi’s ways may seem illogical to many but one cannot deny that he was deeply concerned about the country’s unity and integrity and labored through his own doubts and shortcomings to create a society which could be diverse yet unified, essentially Indian in its spirit – much different from a way of life that the English tried to impose. The earthliness of Gandhi due to his simplicity and apostle like living raised his stature as a saint, and his acute knowledge of the pulse of the public made him a champion of India’s cause. Gandhi was multifarious – he was an erudite scholar and writer/editor, he was a traveler, a lawyer, weaver of his own clothes, cleaner of his lavatories, a great walker and talker, a votary of women’s rights, and a constant experimenter of life on the altar of truth and discipline. He dabbled in politics, in wit and humour, in writing, in education, in spiritualism and in diplomatic maneuvering with equal ease and influence.

On his death anniversary, we must give him his due and forgiving him for his lapses and follies, must celebrate the valour of this brave son of the soil and a true lover of the country. He deserves the position he had achieved through his sweat, toll and, blood, and by worshipping the high pedestal where he sits, we will only make our country proud because the identity of India without the phenomenon called Gandhi, is incomplete. History judges people by different yardsticks and yesterday’s hero may be today’s villain, but the aura of Gandhi is something that will never die.-Window To News
