Remembering Gandhi

On 30th January 1948, at around 5:15 p.m. Nathuram Godse killed Mahatma Gandhi. He shot him thrice at the point blank range, his face turned pale, his clothes rinsed in red blood and with the words ‘Hey Ram’ his body fell on the ground. Immediately he was carried inside the Birla house where he was staying and about 5:40 he died. ‘The light has gone out of our lives and there is darkness everywhere’.

New Year; New Beginning

This is the first post which I am posting in the new year so first of all happy new year to all [well I know it is a little late]. The delay in my making a post is not because I was too busy in my New Year celebrations, and had no time to make one.
