Mahatma Gandhi will always be the greatest human being ever. It is because the causes he took and accomplished for the mankind are unparalleled in history. If he is still relevant in today’s world?
Mahatma Gandhi always stood for integrity, truth, courage, and equal rights. If he found that something is wrong then he will fight till this wrong is converted into right even if it meant death for him. he was willing to go to jail or sacrifice his life to fight it out.
If today’s India is a nation of well functioning democracy where majority and minorities live in peace with each other then all credit goes to him. If Gandhi was not there then India would have never be the nation it is today. It would have disintegrated into many pieces long time back. If we look into history and even today’s world, we see that people of different races or ethnicity can not live together. You see it in Iraq, Former Yugoslavia, Palestine etc. Only a powerful leader can unite people together through sheer force. But the moment a powerful leader is gone, there will be infighting among various ethnic groups. See this in Iraq. Once Saddam Hussain was gone, Kurds, Shias and Sunnis have been fighting with each other. We definitely need a Gandhi there who can ensure unity of all people forever, like he did in India. Similarly a Gandhi is required in Palestine where Palestinian people and Israel have been fighting forever.
We are seeing a world where powerful businessmen are dictating terms to head of state of many countries. Ruthless exploitation of resources is being carries out which is threatening existence of civilization on Earth. We need a Gandhi who could stand and stop this greedy exploitation of mother Earth.
Definitely Gandhi is very much relevant in today’s world.
