Gandhi - Father of our Nation by Joy-cheers Gandhi - Father of our Nation by Joy-cheers
Gandhi, a great leader, also popularly called as Gandhiji or Father of Our Nation.
He struggled for the freedom of India in a peaceful way against British and finally India got the Independence on 15th Aug 1947.
During the 62nd Independence Anniversary, on 15th Aug 2008 i did this portrait.
It may not be a perfect portrait but still i love the most.

I always had such a great admiration for men like Gandhi , Mandela , M. Luther King and all those who really tried hard to do something meaningful for their country , and for the idea of the peace itself .They used different ways to express it...but they all have the same purpose I guess ! :)
To remember them is the less we can do ! :)

You are absolutely right...
We in India call 'Ahimsa' for Gandhiji's movement
That means to achieve a certain task without violence...
something Great!!!!

even am really excited and am inspired by the way you think...
Its a sanskrit language, which is considered to be one of the oldest language...
we should see the amount of determination he had and the huge no of followers who was with him during those period.
When Britishers him and his supporters, they only say 'Vande Mataram' meaning 'I salute my mother(motherland)'.
:D

I'm ashamed I know such a little about your own culture ...
I know that for the christians ( I were raised as a catholic even if I'm not a regular believer ) it's the aramean language I think which is considered as the most ancient one ( the language used around the birth of Jesus Christ ) . Do you know if the sanskrit is as old ?
Well I guess I can googled that as well :)

Our History is so different too ! I can't think about a man in France who could be compare to Gandhi and who did such great things for his country .
( I mean except on the periods of Wars but we talk about Peace here , don't we ? )
It's probably because of it that we had nobody to whom to say ' Vande Mataram' and it's a shame because it's such a beautiful sentence ! :)

If I had had a Leader thinking and working only in a peaceful way I guess I could feel France like a motherland and not more like a country :)

No need to ashame my dear, its good that you are learning something new...
Actually sanskrit is originated before christ. You know 'Yoga', all these were found out by those period...
we always say that India is our Motherland...

But am so happy that you too think in the same way...
so nice of you Mireille..
:heart:
