But do you know that the 'famous' Nobel Foundation never officially recognized him in his life time and thereafter till this day? How come that ? Is it deliberate or just a 'miss' ? Is it fair from the side of an institution as 'noble' as Nobel Foundation to have closed their eyes all these years in this respect?
I am an Indian . A proud Indian . Nearly 30 years' of my overseas life has strengthened 'Indian' in me , simultaneously along with increased respects for others, after meeting , interacting and living with thousands of others, travelling widely the world over. Having said that , here I have tried my best to be a non biased reviewer of the facts on this subject , which are based all from authentic sources including from Nobel Foundation documents .
The intentions of all these corrective actions of the Nobel Foundation are to be appreciated but definitely it falls short of the terrible but corrigible lapse it has committed .
No one can just miss or ignore a person about whom Albert Einstein wrote "Generations to come will scarcely believe that such a one as this (Gandhi) walked the earth in flesh and blood " .
