Tributes to Gandhiji

  • Lord Mountbatten

    former Governor-General of India

    Life of love and truth Gandhiji's death is truly a loss to mankind which so sorely needs the living light of those ideals of love and tolerance for which he strove and died. In her hour of deep sorrow India is proud to have given to the world a man of his imperishable renown and is confident that his example will be a source of inspiration and strength in the fulfilment of her destiny...

    India, indeed the world, will not see the like of him again, perhaps, for centuries.

    Our one consolation in this hour of unparalleled grief is that his life of truth, toleration and love towards his fellows may inspire our troubled world to save itself by following his noble example.
