Mahatma Gandhi

The man of honesty

The man of Greatness

He is our Mahatma

The father of our nation! 

Born in a family

Of Cultured background

Grown in a circle

Of Loving parents.

Honest, truthful and simple

Of body so frail yet nimble

  With heart so big and true

With gifts but given to few.

Made many mistakes

Realized his faults

Vowed never to repeat them

And never committed them again.

Loved his motherland

Brought her freedom

With the weapon of non-violence

And not a drop of blood-shed.

Bravely to prison he went

Though so old and bent

Many a blow did he get

Yet never did he fret.

With guns and knives, he did not fight

Satyagraha was his eternal might

India's independence he fought and won

Bloodshed and bitterness there was none.

Adopted penance and fasting

Started the Satyagraha 

Gave up foreign goods 

And inspired wearing Khadi.
