GANDHI-  THE MAN WHO FASCINATED MASSES.
Gandhi came into Indian politics when the people were in a quagmire of fear and defeatism. He identified  the main problems of the people -like a psycho analyst .The main issues were fear, unemployment, hopelessness, poverty, starvation and defeatism. First , he enlightened the people about the Objective of the freedom struggle as the freedom of INDIA  which was possible only through the welfare of the masses in her villages .
He also suggested that the method   ( the strategy )must be of  peaceful non-cooperation. In his opinion the peaceful  action must be two –fold - challenging the British  and fighting  against our own social issues- which involved raising the depressed, solving minority issues and  ending  the crime of untouchability. Gandhi   identified the main props of the British rule  as fear, prestige, cooperation of the people and vested interests .He decided to attack these foundations. He taught the people to be fearless and the importance of being truthful in public life through campaigns like peaceful  non-cooperation, giving up British titles and simple ways of living  .  The leaders visiting the villages and staying there to understand the miseries of the farmers was a great learning experience to the freedom fighters.
He told the people that he had a vision for a  new India with  a prominent role for the poor in building the Nation and with all the communities living in harmony. He dreamt of an India where there would be no untouchabilty  and  people being not addicted to drinks and drugs. He also spoke for the equality for women and a fusion of religions. This vision kept the spirit of freedom aflame in every Indian.

His excellent leadership qualities kept the people united and poised .He was amazingly energetic ,confident and convincing ,like a powerful current of fresh air. Gandhi was a leader of the people, fascinating them like a magnet does. He made the people proud of their past, hopeful of the future and got them united in resisting the foreign rule. Like a powerful beam of light piercing the darkness , this great leader effected a psychological revolution  among all kinds of people.

HAPPY TEACHER'S DAY


Tribute To A Teacher

We held their hands the first day of school.
Our hearts were filled with pride.
There was an aura of fear and apprehension
As we stood close to their side.
We deposited our children at your door,
Our most precious and prized possessions.
We trusted that you would give them more
Then Reading and Writing lessons.
Our unspoken words were, give them self worth.
They are little children, respect their rights.
Teach them with love and remember compassion.
Use a firm hand to break up their fights.
As the years went by, you did us proud
With your guiding hand and understanding smile.
You gave much more then we expected.
That was your way, your undeniable style.
What higher tribute can we pay a teacher?
To what greater heights can he ascend?
Than to have his students praise his work,
And to say “He is my friend.”

Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (Telugu: సర్వేపల్లి రాధాకృష్ణయ్య)(Tamil:சர்வபள்ளி ராதாகிருஷ்ணன்) (About this sound listen ); (5 September 1888 – 17 April 1975) was an Indian philosopher and statesman[1] who was the first Vice-President of India (1952–1962) and thesecond President of India from 1962 to 1967.[web 1]
One of India's best and most influential twentieth-century scholars of comparative religion and philosophy,[2][web 2] his academic appointments included the King George V Chair of Mental and Moral Science at the University of Calcutta (1921–1932) and Spalding Professor of Eastern Religion and Ethics at University of Oxford (1936–1952).
His philosophy was grounded in Advaita Vedanta, reinterpreting this tradition for a contemporary understanding.[web 2] He defended Hinduism against "uninformed Western criticism",[3] contributing to the formation of contemporary Hindu identity.[4] He has been influential in shaping the understanding of Hinduism, in both India and the west, and earned a reputation as a bridge-builder between India and the West.[5]
Radhakrishnan was awarded several high awards during his life, including the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award in India, in 1954, and honorary membership of the British Royal Order of Merit in 1963. Radhakrishnan believed that "teachers should be the best minds in the country". Since 1962, his birthday is celebrated in India as Teachers' Day on 5 September.[web 3]
