Mahatma Gandhi: Revered as father of the nation

Gandhi: Revered as father of the nation
 
 
Comment: It is befitting to revere Mahatma Gandhi as the father of the nation but what I do not accept is the use of the word ‘murdered’ leader as compared to, and more befitting, ‘assassinated’ leader especially from an Indian reporter and more especially whose name comprises both Ram and Tripathhi.
 
If an Indian denigrates an incomparable leader especially who has been held as the most significant person in the World in the last thousand years, what credibility do I have to criticise past leaders like Winston Churchill about his language used to denigrate Mahatma Gandhi mentioned in my earlier blog?
 
On that issue a very fortuitous Daily Inspiration:
 

In my opinion the Sanskrit text Satyam bruyat priyam bruyat, Na bruyat satyamapriyam means that one should speak the truth in gentle language. One had better not speak it if one cannot do so in a gentle way, meaning thereby that there is no truth in a man who cannot control his tongue. Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

 

I take a thinker’s liberty, begging Swargastha Bapuji’s pardon, to add to that: …’there is no truth in a man who cannot control, cultivate and culture his tongue.’
