Sathya Meva Jaeyathe, Hey Ram, the two words of a simple man, I am not going to write any of his freedom struggles, since we are not capable of following his foot paths, and ready to bash any politician, to lift them as our future Leader or prime minister.  Certainly, neither we do not know the responsibility of a prime minister, nor he does.  We are always ready to accept even a new actor Vijay Sethupathy as our Leader, who knows, he will become, and to that extent we Indians have an attitude of Devotion to the super stardom.

For long time we have been talking about a prime minister of India, biggest Democratic country, gives his speech of Independence Day, in from a glass booth. Now we are fixing an auspicious day even to a chief minister to confront a prime minister.  We do not have any right to talk about Freedom fights.

During my second standard in school, my Social studies teacher Mrs. Saraswathy, who lived near a lane, very adjacent to my school, tried to instill about Bapuji who was searching a pencil, was given to him by a close mate, I had a difficulty to understand this contest, suddenly from the course of adopting alphabets in my first standard. Later Putli Bhai, Porbunder and Bapu’s Birth year were a problem in every examination. When I was in 8th standard, I had been to Rajkot, Porbunder, Sabarmati, with my friend Elango while his Uncle was driving a “Taurus truck” en-route to Delhi & Gujarat, to cater Neycer products. By my 9th standard I appeared for a District Level Essay writing event about Mahathmaji, that time I have been reading his “My experiments with the Truth” and understood the essence of his Ahimsa principle, Truthfulness, Being a vegetarian, value of friendship, the desire over feminine body even after hearing Kasturibha’s father passing away, One India, the proposal to dissolve Congress party and the death in the hands of his own countrymen.

Truly I am not able to follow all his qualities sincerely. In the 10 standard Mr. Sivalingam, my Tamil Teacher, narrated a prose on “Gandhiji”, still in my vivid memory.

By 1982, my maternal Uncle-Balu mama, availed leave to his SBCO job at Indian Post and Telegraphs, has already reserved  Tickets for Gandhi- the movie, directed by Richard Attenborough, the first movie for Ramba & Urvasi cinema theater, I think, mama, myself, Mano,Thambudu and Banu have all enjoyed the Movie. Balu mama only took us to Veerapandiya Kattabomman; I do not know why he has done all this things for us. Now he is down with Parkinson syndrome and walks with a stick like Gandhi. I would appreciate the ‘will’ of Richard Attenborough, casting Ben Kingsly, to act as Gandhi leaving Indian actors, but Kasturiba is our own Rohini Hattangadi, only Indian women can portray the real femininity, to establish the role of real Mahatma had been proved.

Later the Liquor barren Mr. Vijay Mallya has brought the belongings of Bapuji from an Auction, Thank God; at least he was awake, made us proud Indians. Legendary actor Kamal Hasan spent his money and energy to remind Gandhi again on his own language with the movie-‘Hey Ram’, further he had an opportunity to sing a song “Roopa notilathan vaaluraru Gandhi”. I used to go to my office which was situated at Gandhi Mandapam Road, Kotturpuram, is his presence being an Enigma?

On this day, I Salute the Father of our Nation and the real mahatma- Maa kasturibha.
