A bit about Mahatma Gandhi ...

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (October 2, 1869 - January 30, 1948) was a major political and spiritual leader of India and the Indian independence movement. He was the pioneer and perfector of Satyagraha - resistance through mass civil disobedience strongly founded upon ahimsa (total non-violence). Gandhi is commonly known and addressed in India and across the world as Mahatma Gandhi (from Sanskrit, Mahatma: Great Soul) and as Bapu (in many Indian languages, Father).

Jul 11, 2011

Only strong men know how to forgive. Forgiveness does not mean feeble in personalities but represents love, and wisdom. To forgive is never easy. We take actions to hurt other people when we are harm, or our love ones are harm. It is natural for us to take revenge on unpleasant happenings. But one thing should bear in mind is that hurting others brings only more fights. What’s more, hurting others and others will have something in return. This forms a bad cycle. Forgiveness is the best key to stop the unhappiness, and helps a person relieve the pressure to bear a grudge.
