now that the entire country's newspaper's are celebrating Mr. m.k. Gandhi's birthday today, i wondered what it would have been if he would have been alive today?? the height of imagination i know!! for starters, he would be the oldest man alive on earth!! 142 years old!! has anyone lived that long?? hopefully not..but lets draw an imaginary picture and see how it turns out.... his great grandsons would first run to their computers and and open a face book account!! maybe even mark zuckerberg would personally flow into the country to open an account for him!!millions of friend requests would pour in a single hour!! his page will have all his details like his daily routine,his upcoming activities!! his status updates would surely be something like "let's all join together in this battle against the numerous challenges our country is facing now"!! he would definitely be alarmed at the growth of technology and realize that years ago when he thought people worked with their blood and sweat on farms, now thanks to Mr. mark zuckerberg, everyone is a farmer!!! he would be so happy!! ha..ha...but i guess many would also poke him...not all are the same...then an account int the even more popular site, twitter... he would create the record for the maximum no. of followers in a single day!! people all over the world would wait with baited breath for his every single update!! governments,celebrities,workers,...everyone would be a Gandhi fanatic... but i guess, Gandhi ji would not have allowed for his picture to be on the Indian currencies or stamps or any other commercial entity i guess.. owing to his simplicity, there would have been a symbol of our country designed by him instead...then again, our country would not have not out like this... maybe a corruption free government, no castes, no cruelty to animals and probably in a distant future, better relations with Pakistan...all the days would begin and end with him... his bhajans would be incorporated into every bollywood movie...honestly, i think it would be totally over-rated...we would have lost his value.. and commercialized him beyond recognition... already, in the market today, there are pens,cars,memorabilia being marketed in his name at sky-rocketing prices!! imagine the  condition if he had been chaos....recently, i heard a song which said the we want bapu back...the country needs you...seriously?? do you want to give the poor man a heart-attack?? all his life he fought and fought for a corruption free India and if he could see what has become of us today, he would definitely go in a state of shock!!!but imagine what would happen if he really comes back!! what if he just walks into one of the sessions in parliament where chairs are being thrown and chappals are being flung??? kya scene hoga!!! maybe everyone would get scared and get back on the right track!! maybe not..but seriously, think about your capabilities and then make a prayer for getting him back!! can we really follow his hard ideals ?? they are not easy at all.. everyone knows that...but we do miss you bapu..hopefully we can imbibe some value of yours to make our place a better one... happy gandhi jayanthi!! and i said newspapers are the ones only celebrating because no one else is ...look around ..its true...

  2. Hi..nice post... Bapu would have been really shocked to see India in this state if he had been here.. But, we sure can bring a change, if not a total change, then atleast initiate it, by imbibing his values in ourselves and following Bapu's footsteps, of non-violence, peace, and honesty.
