MAHATMA GANDHI

The Mahatma of India
Up-rooted the British Empire from this land
Without resorting to violence
Because he was apostle of peace
And believed in persuasion.
His method to obtain swaraj
Was different from other
Revolutionaries of the time
And this endeared him to the masses
Who rallied around him without dissent.
Thus the destiny of the nation
Was decided not by the then rulers
But by Gandhi who was
Robust in arguments and believed
In sleek behaviour in politics.
Long live such a departed soul
In the niche of our hearts
Without whose ideals we feel orphaned.
