Mahatma Gandhi: The quintessence of true religion
It is easy enough to be friendly to one's friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi ( Porbandar, British India, 2 October 1869 - New Delhi, 30 January 1948), commonly known as Mahatma Gandhi or Bapu (Father of Nation), was an Indian lawyer, thinker and politician. He was the preeminent leader of Indian nationalism in British-ruled India. Employing non-violent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for non-violence, civil rights, and freedom across the world.
