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 " .
