‘We should come out of greedy life’

Mysuru, August 17, 2021: “Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhiji lived a simple life. It is a message for all of us. But today a situation has arisen where we all have become greedy, we need to come out of it,” opined Prof. G.B. Shivaramu, Trustee, Kasturba Gandhi National Memorial Trust, Indore, and Arasikere.

Mahatma Gandhiji’s personality was such that he possessed all the qualities of other great leaders like Buddha, Basavanna, and Ambedkar. He was an embodiment of humanity. Only him can say that ‘My life itself is a message.” It was his principle to hate sin, not the sinner. He had the strength of bringing tears in the eyes of even enemies,” he said.
