The Great Mahatma
I have not seen Mahatma Gandhi,
by Asit Kumar Sanyal
Just read about him, but experienced
The South African struggle
And it's liberation theme.
For me the great Mahatma is Nelson Mandela
He gave his country a separate identity,
Passed away on fifth December
From the people to the infinity.
A red salute to my great hero
Who liberated a race and a Nation,
Fought for his people with empty stomach,
From the confines of prison.
