It was a vacation, and I had nothing to do; I was at home and mummy daddy too. My mother caught a sketch of an old person; He appeared to be the gentlest under the sun.

“Who is he mom”? was my question

“Come on, don’t you know? Was the reaction.


“He is the one who has set us free;
He is the one who planted the tree;


Truth and non – violence is what he taught.
Same were the principles for which he fought.


Preaching and practice for once were the same,
his deeds were worth all the name and fame


I saw the sketch once again,
his returning smile felt like the greatest gain.


October 2nd was that day my friends
and it certainly changed my life’s trends…
