At the Feet of Mahatma Gandhi
I have sometimes felt that Mahatma Gandhi is a modern replica in human form of the sacred Ganga. Descending from heavenly heights like our seers and prophets, rishis and munis, of yore, he has delivered his life-giving message, not only helping us in our material well-being by showing us the way to political independence, social justice and economic prosperity, but also to catch a glimpse of the moral and spiritual heights and to climb at least a few steps in the long and arduous course leading to those heights.
Even so will Mahatma Gandhi?s message of Love and Truth, Ahimsa and Satya bear fruit only for those who will follow his straight and narrow path and regulate their lives according to his strict and strenuous regimen, and give ultimate material prosperity only to those who order and fashion their affairs in conformity with his policy and programme.
