To many, today, your birthday, might just represent a holiday.Or the smiling face on the currency. I dont think you were perfect, who is ? To me, you represent the belief that the path is as important as the goal.
When 22 policemen were done to death, in Chauri Chaura, I can think of 8 things u could have said :
- I didnt do it, so i am not responsible
- My followers didnt do it . Its a frame
- My followers were provoked
- 22 lives. what about the millions of Indian lives!
- Goal justifies the attimes unfortunate Path we have to follow
- They were policemen, its similar to killing a soldier in war
- They weren't civilians leave alone children
- Appoint a committee
But you decided to call off the Non Cooperation Movement itself!
Hope that I discover your spirit in me, everyday, and not just on your birthday.
