Gandhi was one of a kind, If only he had been given nine lives because he surely would have used them to make this world a better place.

Gandhi was my hero for so many years I went and bought the Attenborough movie on his life. I watch it every so often to keep my mind in perspective, when I feel things are getting overwhelming his life story is so incredibly rich and calming ... May his memory be blessed for time immemorial. Kudos for the award, as well in his name.

When I was a school-age child my Father insisted that I read Mahatma Gandhi's autobiography. (The edition I read also included information following Gandhi's tragic and devastating assassination.) I was completely rivited and permanently changed in the process of studying this remarkable book. I encourage readers to get ahold of it and ready it - not content themselves with movies others made about him, please. The book is called:
"The Story of My Experiments With Truth." It is available via libraries and for example. Here is a wikipedia link:
He was an illumined but human being. His own life was impacted and changed forever, in the direction of struggling for justice against oppression, by his experiences as a young man during his time in South Africa - something many people do now know. This is yet another of many reasons why the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., had such profound personal devotion to Mahatma Gandhi.
It is necessary to learn from our Great Teachers. Readers - please read his own book - and share it with others.

Way wrong typo in my last posting!! When writing about Gandhi being so impacted by his spending time in South Africa as a young man, I meant to type: "something many people do NOT know."

Mahatma Gandhi was a great man . Why isn't his name awarded Nobel prize for peace.

Many times placed before Nobel prize committee but turn down in India, we are fighting for Bharet Ratna award, which is not given to this angel of peace.

Mahatma Gandhi shone like a beacon for tolerance and peace and for Indian independence he was at the time and still is an iconic symbol for humanity and richly deserves this award.I hope that this petition is successful.

Gandhi, yes, an angel of peace. A beacon for tolerance and independence and symbol for humanity. I too hope this petition is successful. Why does true Justice take so long?

I have to agree! Perhaps this should be petitioned worldwide?

He of all people deserves this award, and certainly also the Nobel Peace prize... Considering who received the last Nobel Peace Prize, one would really have to question the methods and standards which are used to choose a Nobel laureate.....when an angel on earth was refused this award....
