GANDHI the father of the Nation

My all time Favourite role model is undoubtedly Gandhiji..
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869 in Porbandar, India. He became one of the most respected spiritual and political leaders of the
1900's. GandhiJi helped free the Indian people from British rule through nonviolent resistance, and is honored by Indians as the father of the Indian Nation.

He is popularly known as Father of the Nation in india.

He has written a his autobiography " My Expermiments with truth" ,
which is very popular,in which he has written about his life in detail, both the positive and negative side of his life without any hesitation,which can be rarely seen & heard in this world.

Although he was nominated couple of times for prestigeous Nobel Prize,its sad that he did not get that....Recently the Noble prize committe regretted that they did not give Nobel prize to Gandhi.

Once Famous scientist Einstein said that It will be difficult to believe one day in future that this great Person ever walked on earth.

Here are couple of his Photographs from childhood till his last breath in 1948.

(Photo with Child Indira Gandhi, Nobel Prize Winner Ravindra nath Tagore, Jawaharlal Nehru,with wife Kasturba.......)

Below is the photgraph with wife Shobha, son Sujay near Rajghat near Gandhiji's Samadhi in Delhi on 16th October 2008 ..
