A study of Gandhi Maharaj


It is a poem, which is written by Shri Ravindranath Tagore. He is famous associate and guide of Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma Gandhi loved Mr. Tagore very much. He wrote a letter on Mahatma Gandhi. It is given below.


We, who follow Gandhi Maharaja’s lead,

Have one thing in common among us,

We never fill our purses with spoils from the poor,

Nor bend our knees to the rich.


When they come bullying to us,

With raised fist and menacing stick,

We smile to them, and say,

You’re reddening stare,

May startle babies out of sleep,

But how frighten those who refuse to fear,


Our speeches are straight and simple,

No diplomatic turns to twist their meaning,

Confounding penal code,

They guide with perfect ease the victims

To the border of jail,


And when these crowd the path of the prison gate,

Their stains of insult are washed clean,

Their age long shackles drop to the dust,

And on their forehead are stamped

Gandhiji’s blessing.
