Not that I think of him on his Jayanthi only; actually his smiling portrait adorns the foyer of our office and daily while entering the office, I mentally offer my respects to him and seek his blessings to live truthfully.
I should like to think that I am moving towards these ideals albeit inch by inch.
Some of his lofty and wonderful thoughts I have posted in my blog, “Role Models and Inspiring Lives”. Just a look at them would convince anybody how great and noble a soul he was.
I salute you, Mahatmaji, on this day and may I always keep you in my mind so that inspires me to tread the path of Truth and follow your noble ideals! No matter how many times I fail, I should still pursue these goals till the end, without losing heart.
