THE HIGH SOULED MAHATMA
The Great Gandhiji was the light of India. This light never goes out. It will burn high for ages to come. He died in body, but his spirit will ever live to guide his countrymen.
This man in his later youth became a great speaker. He was honest and fearless. Once the Inspector of schools visited his class and asked the children to write down a few words. Gandhiji wrote a word wrongly. The class teacher gave him a hint to copy the correct word from a slate next to him, Gandhiji refused to do it. The Inspector left the class. He (G) explained to the angry teacher that he dared not do a wrong act. On another occasion, he told a lie. His sick father came to know of this. The little boy wrote out on a chit of paper that he had sinned. The boy stood while the father read the content with eyes full of tears. Gandhiji too wept and vowed never to speak untruth.
