Tributes to Gandhiji

  • N. Gopalaswami Ayyangar, Leader of the Indian Delegation

    Leader of the Indian Delegation

    His life will be an inspiration and a beacon light. Our hearts are filled with unspeakable grief. A great tragedy has overtaken us, the greatest, perhaps, in Indian history in recent years.

    His life will be a great inspiration to the people of India. It will serve as a beacon light to those races and nations who believe that force is not needed in human existence, that the highest achievement of the human race is only possible through non-violence.

    If there was one man in the world who embodied in his life and conduct, who preached through all his life, the principles upon which the United Nations was founded, it was Mahatma Gandhi.
