Father of the nation

I have an older sister.Most of you know her.Just to make things clear,this is not about her.And i'm also sure most of you know the "father of our nation"-Mahatma Gandhi.

*If you are a big mahatma fan,please hit the back button.But this is all in good humor so dont take it personally.*

Ever since i was small,my sister told me he was not THAT good like how people made it seem.That the people who actually fought and shed blood have not been recognised.And that this man just sits and says ahimsa and he's some big hero.That he always had two women beside him and he thought by wearing torn old clothes people would feel sorry for him.That he had good cambridge education but now was sending the poor brits away.And because of the British rule we have trains and roads and buildings.And if the british were still here,Prince William would be visiting every vacation and somehow he would fall in love with my sister and they would have indish or engdian kids...and blah blah..
So anyway,when i was in Madras,i came across this billboard that said,


"You must be the change you want to see in the world."
Mahatma Gandhi
Indian political and spiritual leader (1869 - 1948)

I loved this quote!And after seeing this,i started liking Gandhi a little more.I never disliked him.I mean he did do lots of nice things i'm sure.
Don't ask me why i even did this post but i wanted all of you to know this quote.I haven't started applying it but i'm sure i will someday when i'm OLDer...

Excuse me, do you want me to get assasinated by Gandhians? My justification was that the British would have left anyway. If they didn't and decided to stay here, they would have made this place cleaner and have enforced better rules than it is now. And yes, Prince William would have eventually become our King too. Now that dream is gone.

I mean todays' politicians who comes to power with the name of alliance. Another thing they wont make us super power. One simple example is the current state of 123 Agreement.
I mean we lost many Prince william as well as princess. We have to agree the factor they are superior race. I will be more happy if Our Country ruled by a British or any other superior race related to Bible. Gandhi a great man but the way He handled the power transfer was very ordinary.
