THE LIVING GANDHIS

Sulabh Swachh Bharat tried to find some of the Gandhians and bring their personalities and work to you to not only read and enjoy but also have some take aways, some lessons and some inspiration

Every human being is destined to die but his deeds are reflected in his memory. Better deeds, longer the memory. But there are very few men whose memory lasts as long as Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. He was not called a Mahatma for nothing. His body of work was much greater than many Mahatmas (saints) born before and after him. In fact, his life is legendary, lifestyle is still being copied and his thought process still called Gandhian philosophy.  He has been a source of inspiration to millions of people across the world including greats like Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama. There is hardly a country which doesn’t have a statue of Mahatma Gandhi or doesn’t have a road named after him or doesn’t have a chapter Gandhi.  But, we don’t remember him merely by naming roads and monuments after him. Gandhi is known for his thoughts which he evolved, imbibed and practicised before preaching. That is why there still are billions who believe in him and try to emulate him in their lives and work. The man might have been killed on December 30, 1948 but he is still living on in the work of similar people who have devoted their lives to selfless service to the society.
Some of them may have become famous but for every such well-known Gandhian, there are thousands of those Gandhians who have been working silently in some distant corner of the country. Sulabh Swachh Bharat tried to find some of the Gandhians and bring their personalities and work to you to not only read and enjoy but also have some take aways, some lessons and some inspiration. Let millions of Gandhis be born for the death of every Gandhian. Gandhi can’t die. He is still living in many of us.
