January 30, 1948: The death of Gandhi

Today is the anniversary of Gandhi's death. About the violent end of Mahatma I wrote (click here) and also about his murderess.

Today I want to remember him with this thought.

"To see the universal and all-pervading Spirit of Truth face to face one must be able to love the meanest of creation as oneself.
And a man who aspires after that cannot afford to keep out of any field of life. 
That is why my devotion to Truth has drawn me into the field of politics, and I can say without the slightest hesitation, and yet in all humilty, that those who say that the religion has nothing to do with politics do not know what religion means."

Mahandas Karamchand Gandhi
