Mahatma Gandhi: embodiment of simple living and
A person who is an embodiment of truth. A person whose life is seen
as a beacon light to entire mankind. That was why Mahatma Gandhi,
who was once called the 'Half naked Fakeer' by the then Prime
Minister of Britain, Winston Churchill, came to be respected and
revered equally in East and West.
