Mahatma Gandhi & Nelson Mandela

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (pronounced: ; 2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was the preeminent leader of Indian Nationalism in British ruled India. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (18 July 1918 — 5 December 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the first black South African to hold the office, and the first elected in a fully representative, multiracial election. 5.0/5

Why Palestine is so important to us: Why many Indians and Muslims of Indian subcontinent are against the Israel’s aggression. First of all, anyone who knows history of Arab-Israel conflict knows very well how Zionist have deported thousands of Arab families and created a Nation with the help of British Empire. Later they required US support to survive. This was the reason why Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Bertrand Russell and many activists and scholars irrespective of religion, nationality and ethnicity denounced and deplore Israel’s action. Continuous illegal settlements in the occupied Arab land by Israel and current innocent deaths of Palestinian children, women and men are true example of an expansionist and aggressive mentality of Israel and Zionists. Gaza is an open air prison. We have many friends there and they say what they are going through. Our ancestors fought against British and got independence. One of the freedom fighters was Mohammad Ali Jauhar. We know very little abo ...
Opinion - Prof. Shuaibu Oba Abdulraheem: Celebrating an Icon, A Great Leader Date: 2013-04-16 By Abdulrahman Abdulrahim One universal consensus about leadership is that it is a process through which a person influences and motivates others to get involved in the accomplishment of a particular task. When asked about great leaders the world has produced, people readily reel out the names of the likes of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela etc. These are leaders that are admired because they put themselves to serve purposes that are larger than themselves in life. Prof. Shuaibu Oba AbdulRaheem (OFR), Talba of Ilorin indeed belong to the category of great leaders who lay enduring foundations of untiring selflessness which impact positively on the lives of multitudes. Born not with a silver spoon in his mouth, Prof. Oba underwent his educational pursuit diligently both in Nigeria and the United Kingdom. From the St. Malachy’s College in Minna where he trained as a teacher to Ahmadu Bello U ...
South African Gandhian Nelson Mandela Feature : Mandela Day Dr. P.J. Sudhakar* Nelson Mandela, a true Gandhian adopted democratic methods for achieving Human Rights, freedom and emancipation of Blacks from the South African apartheid regime. As a leader, Nelson Mandela can be compared to radical reformers like Mahatma Gandhi, Garibaldi of Italy and Lenin of Soviet Union who waged life-long struggles for freedom and human dignity. He led the struggle against apartheid- the inhuman practice of racial discrimination followed by rulers in South Africa. Mandela’s relentless crusade fructified in getting equal rights for Black people who were denied the basic rights to equality, freedom, human dignity and right to life. Nelson Mandela spent 27 years of his life in the prisons of oppressive white rulers. Eventually, the Pretoria government had to release him in the autumn of 1990. The Indian Government honored Mandela with Nehru Peace Prize in 1980 and the highest civilian award Bharat Ratna conferred on him i ...

THE MANY INTANGIBLE ACHIEVEMENTS OF GOVERNOR MU’AZU BABANGIDA ALIYU By Musa Suleiman - Globally, celebrated leaders are not remembered because of the number of structures or edifices that they have constructed. History remembered them those who impacted on humanity based on issues that are of global interest. These people; Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Sir Ahmadu Bello, Tafawa Balewa, Kwame Nkrumah and a host of others, became reference points in history because of the enduring, mostly intangible legacies they left behind for us today. Awolowo and Ahmadu Bello may have constructed and established institutions, built houses and constructed roads. But many years down the line, these infrastructures are either dilapidated, abandoned, partially or completely non- existent. Yet, they remain reference point to this generation and beyond because they knew that the only way to invest in the future was to give their people qualitative and functiona ...
Dr. Chee Soon Juan prefers transparency as a response to allegations. This is especially so when it comes to allegations against a government. is a choice rant by Lee: “He’s a liar, he’s a cheat, he’s deceitful, he’s confrontational, it’s a destructive form of politics designed not to win elections in Singapore but to impress foreign supporters and make himself out to be a martyr. He’s deliberately going against the rules because he says, ‘I’m like Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi. I want to be a martyr.’” See or for details on where it arose. I have a similar perspective (with some differences). Precise questions with well-defined sources of evidence should be answered directly. "Do Minister X do something wrong in spending government money?" would not be a such a question. On the other hand, "Did Cabinet extend a loan of about $XX billion in the year Y to Z country in contravention to law L?" would be extremely well defined (unspoken is that Cabinet minutes and MOF/MFA documentati ...
News, a fitting tribute from a husband to his dear wife. My late wife embodied these principles May 23, 2014 | By KNews | Filed Under Letters Dear Editor, Sometimes we take small things and little acts of kindness for granted, actions which can mean a whole lot to people, especially during times of distress and need. These thoughts dawned upon me as I mourn the passing of my own wife a few days ago. My family and I were overwhelmed by the outpouring of grief and condolence by people from all walks of life, in particular those who knew her both in terms of her professional and personal life. Scores of people turned up at her funeral service which was kept very simple at her own request. Every individual leaves on his or her passing a kind of legacy which may or may not be very well articulated or defined depending on the person’s stature or prominence in society. Great leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Cheddi Jagan have left legacies that have impacted on the minds .. ...

Mahatma Gandhi – Once in a millennia leader No man in the history of mankind has had an effect like Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi did on human thought, ideals and behavior. He was the most influential leader of the Indian freedom struggle leading many campaigns against the British Colonial rule which eventually bore fruit with the independence of India in 1947. Gandhi, was a leader who was made famous by his beliefs and his methods, he propagated the use of non-violence and satyagraha as a means of protest. His methods inspired a generation of leader world over including luminaries such as Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr. The father of India, Mahatma Gandhi, will always be remembered as one of the greatest leaders of all time inspiring and motivating humanity for generations to come.
The men, that have inspired me to be young man that I'm now and the man that I am still destined to be are; God, My Dad, My Granddads (John & Peter), Nigel Tween, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr., T.D. Jakes, Billy Graham, Abraham Lincoln, Sidney Poitier and Mahatma Gandhi. O:) (y) B-)
A teenager had decided to quit high school, saying he was just fed up with it all. His father was trying to convince him to stay with it. "Son," he said, "you just can't quit. All the people who are remembered in history didn't quit. Abrham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Douglas McArthur, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther and Mahatma Gandhi, they didn't quit. Elmo McCringle..." "WHO?" the son burst in, "Who's Elmo McCringle?" "See" the father replied, "You don't remember him. He quit!"
I admire the humility of Billy Graham, Julius Nyerere and Mahatma Gandhi; the willpower and organisation skills of Tom Mboya and William Ruto. I also admire the foresight that was in Martin Luther King Jnr; the determination of Wangari Mathai, the persistence of Raila Odinga, the persuasiveness of Uhuru Kenyatta and the eloquence of Barack Obama, the perseverance and forgiveness of Nelson Mandela and the wisdom of Jesus Christ.-- Kipchumba Murkomen
Today I was told: "How can I help you if I cannot help myself?" after I did so much for that person. Well, you can by forcing yourself to put yourself together for people in need of a helping hand. This allows you to do the impossible, enabling you to see the strength you never thought you had, giving you hope to get out of the worst times. All the legends in the world who made our world a better place had problems and yet managed to save our world and make it easier to live life. Best examples: Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Mikhail Gorbachev, William Wilberforce, Nelson Mandela,Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Thomas Jefferson, and lets not forget Helen Keller - despite her disability of both deafness and blindness, she learned to read and write, and helped improve the welfare of deaf people. Hence, selfishness is something we shouldn't expose to the world whereby people struggled and died for us to learn how to HELP EACH OTHER WHEN IN NEED! Think about it, if 2 people . ...
From Milton Hershey of Hershey Chocolate Company (whose businesses went bankrupt three times before he finally made it big), Henry Ford (who failed twice before Ford Motor Corporation was born) to Abraham Lincoln (who lost seven times in the Presidential elections before he finally made it), all successful people have been the biggest failures at one point or the other in their lifetimes. Every person in this world has had failures, some small, some big. There is no individual on this planet who has been a born winner and none who has never experienced any failure – from Steve Jobs to Bill Gates to Mahatma Gandhi to Nelson Mandela, all legendary icons have been as legendary in being failures at some point or the other in their lives. But the one common quality amongst all of them has been, that they’ve never given up. The resolve to fight each failure – however harsh it might be – with conviction is the attitude that these losers have had. And that’s exactly the attitude that you should cherish ...
When Africa is in a good health the entire world is in a good health While I do have many dreams… I am not a dreamer. There are lofty dreams and then there are dreams that take flight into action. The first time I heard the immortal words from Dr. Martin Luther King’s speech “I have a dream” I felt the resonance of each and every word within me, as they burned deep within my heart and mind. To make a small difference is nothing... anyone can merely just make a difference. To make a real difference requires divine passion. This is something, which only can God plants within your heart – a very special and honored offer afforded only a rare dew individuals. The real question is whether or not you can open your mind and heart you let it grow in your heart to take this gift of non-violent change and allow it to grow within your heart. It’s not for any one of us to merely imitate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi or Nelson Mandela – we must always find your own way... our own paths to sp ...
Arise O compatriots is a clarion call to all Nigerians to love and render selfless service to our beloved fatherland. Life is more than just being comfortable. No matter how much money you have made, the connections you have, fame and influence you presently enjoy, it is time to join the wagon of NATIONAL TRANSFORMATION. Mother Teresa, Lee Kuan Yew, Obafemi Awolowo, Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela, Jonh Knox, Mahatma Gandhi and others who lived for positive change in their life-time are men and women born naked like you and i. Interestingly, generations unborn will continue to read about, appreciate and learn from them. The Nigeria you are living today is a nation built upon the sweats, bloods and sacrifice of other men and women. Wealth acquisition has never built a nation but selfless service and sacrifice. It is time to give our all so as to build a heavenly Nigeria. Nigerians are not different from Nigeria; Nigeria is a product of the conscious efforts of Nigerians. God is still prepared to help us build a ...
Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and a very few others have been counted as kind personalities, when in Political Power. But all and every politician in power claims to be like them, and end up proving worse than Idi Amin.
We need an indigenous African Gandhi to make us step away from the abyss now that Mamphela Ramphele has become tainted and has thrown the gates wide open encouraging the barbarians to continue to rape and pillage our developmental state. An indigenous African Gandhi is informed by the spirituality of Ubuntu and coupled with Satyagraha he can take to the stage as a potent unifier of the diversity that informs the body politic very much like Nkosi Albert John Luthuli and Nelson Mandela. Let me clarify that satyagraha is not to be pigeonholed in the English dictum of ‘passive resistance’.It is much more than that. Mahatma Gandhi explains that it means truth (sat) and firmness (agraha) and entails a continuing and enduring struggle that is timeless. Its trite that South African society has been characterised by moral degeneracy.We have a ethically lapsed system of governance that leaves beneficiaries of our constitutional democracy with hardly any choice but to man the barricades and storm the ramparts as ...
We don't need more political leaders but we need a great leaders who can change the nation like Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Irabot.
Rising Graph of India's Popularity in Africa By Vijay Naik As India and South Africa celebrate the centenary of Mahatma Gandhi's last Satyagraha in South Africa this year, both India and the continent of Africa, comprising 53 nations, are ready to forge political, economic and strategic ties in practically every field of human activity. Ruled by colonial powers for over a century, India and Africa were bound by their proximity of thought to fight against the forces of imperialism. African Leaders Kwame Nkruma (Ghana), Haile Selassie (Ethiopia), Samora Machel, (Mozambique), Jonas Savimbi,(Angola), Jomo Kenyatta, (Kenya), Nelson Mandela, (South Africa) Julius Nyerere (Tanzania) and Leopold Sedar Senghor (Senegal) had close and friendly ties with India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and later with Indira Gandhi. Their struggle for freedom created a common bond of friendship.
For years, decades and centuries innocent people have died all over the world, whether it was during colonisation time in Africa, Slavery, Colonisation of India, WWI, WWII, COLD WAR, and Vietnam. During that time the world saw great Leaders form the colonised nations such as, Mahatma Gandhi, Moa Zedong, Nelson Mandela, Ernesto "Che" Guevara and Fidel Castro and many more. These people saw the unfair treatment of people based on race, ethnicity, nationality, religion and tried to put stop to the unfairness. Today living in western nations we are blessed with all the right and freedom we take for granted. Democracy has given us the opportunity to live freely and speak up and say what is on our mind. We elect our leaders and we are included in the decision making process of the leaders we have elected. This is all very wonderful for us, but those unfortunate nations and people all over the world that are not as fortunate as we in the west. Instead of try to help and nurture these nations and their people to ...

"Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a leader who, like Mahatma Gandhi before him, and Nelson Mandela after him, showed us the way from weakness and division to strength in unity. He challenged and inspired us to reach deeper within ourselves, despite ourselves, for our best, which sometimes is, simply, better than yesterday. His power endures because it's rooted in the courage to hold hope and faith in each others potential: 'knowing' we can do it... we can be better every day, each in our own way." Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Leadership Lessons:
Today's Daily Word is dedicated to building your legacy! A legacy is something that is received from someone who has died! The dictionary says it can be property or money but we all know that in most cases those leave very little value! When we speak of legacy, we speak of what has been done in a lifetime that lives on past that person's death! When you think of Martin Luther King and his dream of equality and the mark he left in the world, or when you think of Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, and as of recent, Nelson Mandela... These are all souls who were selfless and lived a life of service and vowed to leave the world better than how they found it! When you think about your life. What legacy will you leave? When it is all said and done, how will you be remembered? Are you going to continue to only think about yourself and live a life that will be over after the obituary? Or are you going to maximize your God-given talents to leave a mark in the world that will never be forgotten? I don't care ...
January 19: “Claiming Freedom” (Martin Luther King, Jr. Sunday) Rev. Jennifer Brooks The 20th century was notable for the “self-determination” movements that claimed freedom in India, led by Mahatma Gandhi; in South Africa, led by Nelson Mandela; in the Czech Republic, led by Václav Havel; and in the United States, led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. What makes people willing to risk claiming freedom? How do we stand in solidarity with all people everywhere who claim freedom for themselves and their children?
This is Saturday's Advent Devotional - written by Floyd Hale, a member of Sandy Springs Christian Church. Isaiah 11:1-9 Eagerly Awaiting the Prince of Peace! Or Is He Awaiting Us? During this frequently hectic advent season, we eagerly await the Prince of Peace. But from where does peace come? How does it grow? How and where does it spread? The Roman Empire was not able to bring lasting security or peace. Pax Romana was a myth, especially for those who were occupied and oppressed and eventually for the occupier and the oppressor. Nor has security or peace come from the world's most sophisticated, expensive, and extensive military-industrial complex or from the most broadly and well-armed citizens ever. Have we not learned that weapons cannot ensure security, much less peace? Isaiah 11:1-9 may help us answer those important questions. Isaiah says that peace comes from a tender shoot. Some tried to tell Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Nelson Mandela that a tender shoot could not exert a ...

MANDELA LESSONS FOR NIGERIAN LEADERS - Pat Utomi When I teach leadership, I often raise the question of the twentieth century. Why did giants walk the earth as global leaders early in the century and the epoch ended with a dearth of global leaders, from Winston Church, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud etc and it closed with people like George W Bush, a classic nonleaders, I ask what happened. But a scape goat from the age and tradition of Gandhi, still was on a long walk to freedom, stepping out another turn in in 1990. When he died as December dawned on 2013 his spirit had come to define the possibilities for the 21st century. Nelson Mandela, Commander ofUmkhonto we siswe, the spear of the Nation who gave 27 of his years in prison, left us lessons for beingexposed like a house set on the hill. What are some that could save us from ourselves. Madiba was a walking classroom we could draw from to claim the promise of Nigeria that is so severely under threat from how we are led. The one person ...
I was very pleased to attend today a wonderful ceremony celebrating the life of Nelson Mandela at Auckland’s Holy Trinity Cathedral. I was invited to speak and the text of my speech follows. Eulogy to Nelson Mandela It is a privilege to speak about a man who for me was a political hero and along with Mahatma Gandhi, one of the two most inspirational leaders of the twentieth century. In 1964 Nelson Mandela stood trial for armed struggle against apartheid. Believing he would be sentenced to death, he ended his comments to the Court with a statement that encapsulated what he believed in. ‘During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the idea of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to d ...
HOW THE LONG WALK BEGAN Article by. Enuga Reddy. Posted by. . Kirti Menon. Great Granddaughter of Mahatma Gandhi. In March 1939, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru wrote a series of eight articles which were reprinted in a pamphlet and later included in his book The Unity of India (London, 1941). Nelson Mandela read it when he was a student at the University of Witwatersrand, where he had several Indian friends. He was greatly impressed and later read Nehru’s autobiography. He could recite long passages from Nehru’s writings even in 1991 when I met him at Luthuli House. At the end of the last article, Nehru wrote: “There is no easy walk-over to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow again and again before we reach the mountain-tops of our desire. “Danger and difficulties have not deterred us in the past; they will not frighten us now. But we must be prepared for them like men who mean business and who do not waste their energy in vain talk and idle action. The w . ...

Out of nowhere at breakfast this morning: Jeidus (5 1/2): "remember the guy who died about five days ago?" Me: "Nelson Mandela?" Jeidus: "Yes. He was a lot more like Mahatma Gandhi than any of our presidents. He wasn't a lot like George Washington or even Barack Obama." Me: "how so?" Jeidus: "He kind of fought an army and the police with just using his words. He was trying to tell people not to fight. Some of the people who protested even got hurt or killed, but he was telling them not to." Me: "that's right. So, what do you think about Nelson Mandela?" Jeidus: "he was a pretty cool guy!"

A life well lived and leadership exemplified through character and conviction. Nelson Mandela has left a legacy that puts him in class with world leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., one that not only inspires but elevates the standard for new and aspiring leaders not just for the nation of South Africa but the world. "Great men are known by the way they treat the little man.
Did America flag fly at half-mast for death of Margaret Thatcher? President Obama did not order the flag flown at half staff for the death of Margaret Thatcher, did not attend her funeral, and did not send any high level officials to represent the United States. Unlike the current death of Nelson Mandela. As for Mandela, my feelings are mixed. The media would like to have you believe he was comparable to Mother Teresa or Mahatma Gandhi. Mandela did not invent goodness, and to misrepresent where goodness comes from is the definition of evil as Augustine understood it when people place themselves over God. He was in jail due to his terrorism, and he was offered release repeatedly IF he publicly renounced terrorism, which he would not do. Understanding this, his speeches now sound very misleading to me, like he's trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the people and misdirect them. Sounds like the leader of our country today. The Iron Lady needs no representation in this discussion. It's easy to see which ...

I posted this a couple days ago..."The whole world, pretty much, is mourning for Nelson Mandela today, but most are not mourning for the real Mandela. They are, in fact, mourning for the MYTH of Mandela. He was not Martin Luther King Jr. He was not Mahatma Gandhi. And he was certainly NOT George Washington, as Barack Obama claimed. He was a committed member of the South African Communist Party. He was a LEADER of the revolutionary African National Congress, which he helped to radicalize into an organization sworn to armed, violent attacks. Some say: “But, he was fighting against the evil of Apartheid!” Yes, that is true. Apartheid was inarguably an evil and unjustifiable system. But so is the system Mandela’s revolution brought about – one in which anti-white racism is so strong today that a prominent genocide watchdog group has labeled the current situation a “precursor” to the deliberate, systematic elimination of the race. In other words, the world has been sold a bill of goods about Mandel ...

What made Nelson Mandela so special and highly esteemed and endeared worldwide? He had almost reach the status of Mahatma Gandhi of India. What made him great, if not the greatest, African Black man who ever lived? Nelson Mandela was a lawyer. He purposely studied law for the single purpose of helping his fellow Black Africans get justice from the oppressive and demeaning rule of the British Empire. He was one of the founders of the movement that fought against Apartheid. Apartheid is an African word which means racial segregation. It just mean that White people, the minority that ruled South Africa, are first class citizens and accorded the highest standard of living and treatment. The Black people, including the Asians and Indians, were second class citizens. And were treated so low, as though like slaves. Nelson Mandela's anti-apartheid movement cost him his liberty. He was imprisoned for 27 years, in total isolation or solitary confinement. While in prison, his wife, Winnie Mandela carried the torch o ...
People need to stop comparing Nelson Mandela to Dr. Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi. MLK and Gandhi believed in the power of nonviolence while Mandela definitely did not.
Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Mwl Julius K Nyerere, Mother Theresa and Nelson Mandela never lived for paycheck, they never struggled to accumulate wealth yet they lived and did not die poor. Their names are household names worldwide. They will always be remembered for as long as this world shall live! Not because of their wealth, not because they were the richest or most educated BUT rather because THEY ALL WORKED FOR HUMANITY!! They all spent their lives making our world better... We are all better off because of their lifetime commitment to HUMANITY!!! Rest in Peace Madiba...Your legacy will forever live!!
His life, his mission, his patience - an inspiration to all. We have seen within the last century great leaders who are now gone from this earth. To name a few Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela; truly great men who transcended politics, oppression and brutality.
Our solitary boast “THE ICONIC spiritual leaders of our time took decades of struggle and growth before they were formed into the universally recognized symbols that we know and love”, writes Ambassador Akbar Ahmed. He chairs Islamic Studies at American University in Washington DC. “Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Nelson Mandela are universally recognized examples.” the jump:
In these days following Nelson Mandela's death many will try to rewrite his history or better yet reshape it. It's not the first time it has happened nor will it be the last when it comes to our leaders, our heroes, our icons. It has been done to Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, Marcus Garvey, Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Leonard Peltier, even Mother Teresa. They will label Mandela a communist & a terrorist because he refused to denounce controversial leaders like Fidel Castro or Moammar Gaddafi or once aligned with the armed wing of the ANC that advocated violence to overthrow the apartheid regime of South Africa. Any student of history knows that sometimes in order to force change like the legislated regulation of racial segregation (APARTHEID) in South Africa there's the possibility for violence. How is Mandela any different than those who fought in the American Civil War like John Jacob Astor, Ulysses S. Grant or William Sherman? Why isn't history labelling them terrorists? Nelson Mandela . ...
It never seems to amaze me how an effective ad campaign can whitewash the worst people. Cases in point are those of Menachem Begin, who was celebrated as Prime Minister of Israel and the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize (along with that unrepentant Nazi sympathizer Anwar Sadat).and as the leader of the Irgun, committed acts of terrorism including the bombing of the King David Hotel. Today we have the whole world worshipping at the memory of Nelson Mandela, who as a leader of ANC engaged in acts of terrorism. These men are far removed from the effective non-violent civil rights triumphs of Martin Luther King, or Mahatma Gandhi. But who knows, with time and a good media blitz, even Uncle Joe Stalin's memory can be rehabilitated.
Nelson Mandela died at the age of 95 at his home in Johannesburg , announced on the evening of Thursday, December 5th South African President Jacob Zuma, live on public television.

Until the end, while he may be celebrated around the world , while powerful states and wove her laurels, he stood statues him décernaient palms and rewards, while just over one gave his name to thousands of schools , universities, streets, squares, parks and various institutions to the end he wanted "a man like any other, a sinner who is trying to improve " .It has been compared , and we identify more now that he is dead, Mahatma Gandhi, the Dalai Lama , Martin Luther King.

The world mourns the demise of another leader………. Every Leader in the world pays to tribute to great personalities like Nelson Mandela, Human Rights Activist, and other leaders like him Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru when they pass from this world to the next. After some years have passed, some, leaders and people from these great leaders own countries even accuse them of things they did not do/are not or forget these great souls, who died fighting for their people’s freedom, peace, justice and Human Rights. Then their names, works become simply a symbol of freedom, peace, Human Rights, an art to view, to read about in history books. Their view, speeches, quotes are echoed the world over. However, people forget the true essence of their struggle for freedom, justice and Human Rights in their daily walks of life. We can change and make this a better world with the seeds that these great leaders have sown if and only if the change begins with each one of us (at home, at work, at places of worship) ...
Isn't it interesting that before they were Statesmen; George Washington, John Adams, Menachem Begin, Anwar Sadat, Mahatma Gandhi, Yasser Arafat, Fidel Castro and Nelson Mandela were all once referred to as terrorists?
Let us remember Nelson Mandela truthfully. He was a left-leaning, anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist and anti-racist revolutionary. He was unlike India's Mahatma Gandhi who was totally committed to a non-violent form of struggle. He had photos with Fidel Castro and Yasser Arafat. He was not just a man who fought apartheid in South Africa but a man who saw poverty as a Human Rights violation against all the people of the world. He criticized the US for its excesses and aggression. He may not be right in all of his causes but apparently a big part of them were true because they were not able to deny him the accolade of history.
The world has lost a great advocate of civil rights, Nelson Mandela. He will be remembered alongside the likes of Mahatma Gandhi, Betty Friedan and Martin Luther King Jr. as someone who changed this world for the better. However, in equal measure with their achievements we must never forget that these were great people, and nothing more. They weren't saints, nor Gods, nor super-humans but simply... human. That same greatness is within us all, that same potential and conviction to do what is right. The loss of Nelson Mandela (and so many others) is tragic not for what he accomplished, but for the millions of people he inspired throughout his life - the loss of that inspiration will truly hit the world hard in years to come. May there be many more like him.
Nelson Mandela - Global Statesman and Peace Icon Globally respected as a symbol of resistance against injustice, Nelson Mandela brought an end to the much-despised apartheid regime in South Africa while spreading the spirit of freedom in the rest of Africa. Incarcerated for 27 years through much of his youth, Mandela became the first-ever elected black president of his country, ushering in multi-racial democracy replacing the whites-only rule. Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi's principle of Ahimsa, especially his campaign in South Africa itself during his days as a lawyer, Mandela also preached against violence though the struggle against the apartheid regime was marked by violent incidents. The 95-year-old Nobel laureate was one of the world's most revered statesmen and was awarded the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honour in 1990. Mandela, who had been suffering from a recurring lung infection, died early today following a prolonged spell of ill-health. He led the struggle to replace the apartheid reg ...
We where the lucky ones cause we got to know and live in a world with Great leaders walking, people that made a difference in the world. Their legacies will be remembered for centuries to come. They paved paths with words and wisdom , their walk towards greatness was hard but they made it. Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Delai Lama, Che Guevara, Martin L. King, Mallkom X , Yasir Arafat and Nelson Mandela. I do not know if coming generations will have the same luck of witnessing such greatness. (Sometimes, it falls upon a generation to be great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom) Nelson Mandela
This is about Nelson Mandela's time in prison. ‘The 27 years were absolutely crucial in his spiritual development. The suffering was the crucible that removed considerable dross, giving him empathy for his opponents. It helped to ennoble him, imbuing him with magnanimity difficult to gain in other ways. It gave him an authority and credibility that otherwise would have been difficult to attain. No one could challenge his credentials. He had proved his commitment and selflessness through what he had undergone. He had the authority and attractiveness that accompany vicarious suffering on behalf of others – as with Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama.’ (Tutu)

I stood less than 300 feet from Nelson Mandela (Madiba) in the lobby of the Wyndham Hotel in 1991. Madiba is statesman for South Africa, a Politician for the people, and a Citizen of the world. We will never in this life see another. He joins a short list of a world citizens who have done more to advance the cause of justice and human dignity without regard for personal recognition; Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela. Matiba walked into heaven doing the most earthly good. A great example for all humankind. Rest in peace Madiba!
A lot of people are beginning to compare the great Nelson Mandela with the likes of Mahatma Gandhi and the late Albanian nun, Mother Theresa. That would be like comparing a piece of shale--not with marble--but with the finest and rarest of diamonds! Without trying tobe disrespectful Gandhi and Mother Theresa, there is no basis for comparison except that the trio were internationally known individuals--like Hitler, like Stalin, and like, of course, Satan. Gandhi PREACHED resistance (all be it a passive one), Mandela LIVED forgiveness and reconciliation; Gandhi was a racist who, on a visit to South Africa in the early 1990s, criticised the apartheid government for a keeping both Indians and KAFFIRS in the same jail. In case you didn't know, 'kaffir' is the same as *** . He said the blacks of South Africa smelled and could not be trusted. He also greatly despised the British and the Boers (Afrikaners) of South Africa for maltreating--not other South Africans--but Indians.Mandela lovd men of ALL races. Ga ...
Nelson Mandela is in the Class of those who fought for freedom like Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr, Toussaint L'ouverture, Che Guevara, Cochise, Geronimo, Harriet Tubman, Levi Coffin, Malcom X and many, many others!. My question is do our children know who he is? Do they know anyone on this list other then King, X, and Tubman?
Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther, Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, Marcus Garvey, Patrice Lumumba,Tom Mboya, Wangari Maathai..etc...are all remembered not because of their AFFLUENCE, but because of their INFLUENCE. Ponder that.
The order was established by Rajendra Prasad, President of India, on 2 January 1955. The original statutes of January 1954 did not make allowance for posthumous awards (and this perhaps explains why the decoration was never awarded to Mahatma Gandhi), though this provision was added in the January 1966 statute. Subsequently, there have been twelve posthumous awards, including the award to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose in 1992, which was later withdrawn due to a legal technicality, the only case of an award being withdrawn. The award was briefly suspended from 13 July 1977 to 26 January 1980. There is no formal provision that recipients of the Bharat Ratna should be Indian citizens. Bharat Ratna has been one award to a naturalised Indian citizen, Mother Teresa (1980), and to two non-Indians, Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan (1987) and Nelson Mandela (1990).
Over the last one month, given the hullaballoo over Sachin Tendulkar's retirement, I am only reminded of the eternal value of the Wachowski brothers' Matrix! Red pill vs. blue pill...when I see even the so-called, self-professed "thinking" ones singing paeans to a sportsperson, who, by the way, had nothing in common with Mahatma Gandhi or Nelson Mandela or Mother Teresa or Martin Luther King Jr in terms of sacrifice... How more pathetic can the Indian citizen become?

TODAY IN HISTORY (26 September, 2004) Former SA president and long serving political prisoner, Nelson Mandela, was voted the Greatest South African in a TV show that had the country nominate their 100 most favourite personalities. The ranking of the rest of the top 10 had yet to be decided. SABC3 intended to screen documentaries devoted to the top ten over the next nine weeks until December 9, the culmination of the vote. The top nine, following Mandela, were in alphabetical order: Dr Chris Barnard, F.W. de Klerk, Mahatma Gandhi, Nkosi Johnson, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, Thabo Mbeki, Gary Player; Jan Smuts and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. There were some surprising inclusions in this list, such as Hendrik Verwoerd, the architect of apartheid and Steve Hofmeyr, receiving more support than Walter Sisulu. The list included a number of writers, actors and singers, but only one painter, J.H. Pierneef at 99. Athol Fugard came in as the 100th greatest South African of all time. The program was stopped because of pol ...

Some exciting news: the finals day of NSDC 2013 will be hosted at the Constitutional Court of South Africa! Thank you to Constitution Hill (South Africa) for their generous support of South African debating and our future leaders. Constitution Hill is the home of the Constitutional Court, the protector of our basic Human Rights and Constitution. Constitution Hill is also the site of Johannesburg's notorious Old Fort Prison Complex, commonly known as Number Four, where thousands of ordinary people were brutally punished before the dawn of democracy in 1994. Many of South Africa's leading political activists, including Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, were detained here. The Constitutional Court was designed to reflect the values of our new constitutional democracy and is an incredibly meaningful venue for us. We hope you enjoy it!
"Many people want you and I to fall and we have to be vigilant about that. Just look at the f* police officers giving you tickets every turn of the way. They will stop at nothing till they kill you... Just like Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. They hate to see you and I shine but we cannot let them see us down. Never never never... Not a second! And there is absolutely no point reacting to such spiteful, envious or greedy devils at all. Just ignore them all and proceed with the work of GOD and NATURE. Kill them all with the silence and watch them peel off the map, just like JAH intended. Just give them the f*** off smile and trod on with your music my baby! Look at how they fought Bob Marley, Garvey, Mother Theresa, Mahatma Gandhi, John Kennedy, Che Guevara and Nelson Mandela. They even killed Jesus Christ. So how could we suddenly be an exception."

In most of the cases, these individuals sacrificed their time, energy, resources and in some cases, their lives in the pursuit of justice and fairness. The story of former Prime Minister India, Mahatma Gandhi of India is still very fresh in the minds of historians and the people of India. It was to Gandhi’s credit that India eventually got her political freedom from Britain after the great pathfinder organised the Long Trek that ultimately culminated in the country’s independence. In America, Martin Luther King Jnr was the man who ensured equity for the Black race through his civil rights campaigns. Elsewhere, Nelson Mandela took it upo ...

Each and every sacrifice has changed the world to be a better place. But why then, why? Why is the world stil unjust, why are children getting killed, why are we treating each other bad? Why arent we all inspired by the courage shown from people like Spartacus, Cinque, Kunta Kinte, Alekos Panagulis, Mallcolm X, Tutu, Dalai Lama, Rosa Parks, Angela, Fred Hampton, Vera Chirwa, Che Guevara, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, the list of heros is long enough to learn what life is about; about each other, not about our selfes. Cause they showed us that only by looking for comon happiness can we be happy. And they where prepaired to sacrifice them selfes for the well of others. For freedom and Love. Peace.

He always believes winning the confidence of people is the only weapon to achieve heights in politics and become a statesman. Apart from his father and former chief minister YS Rajaekhara Reddy, his role models are ­ Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi who fought for the freedom of their people in their respective countries by languishing in jails for years. Jagan, who was incarcerated exactly one year ago on May 27 in the 150 year old Chenchalguda jail in connection with disproportionate assets case probed by the CBI, is quite different in his character and behavior from what his opponents call the 40 year old young politician to be an ` arrogant and a political opportun ...

Some unknown Facts about mahatma gandhi.. 1. Mahatma Gandhi spoke English with an Irish accent, (for one of his first teachers was an Irishman.) 2. Mahatma Gandhi experimented with diets to see how cheaply he could live and remain healthy. He started living principally on fruit and goats’ milk and olive oil. 3. Mahatma Gandhi never visited the US, but he had many American fans and followers. One of his more unusual admirers was Henry Ford. Gandhi sent him an autographed charkha (spinning wheel) through a journalist emissary. During the darkest days of the Second World War, Ford, who was struck by the charkha’s “mechanical simplicity and high moral purpose,” would often spin on “the symbol of economic independence that Gandhi had sent. 4.

Youths demand larger stake in politics February 1, 2013 in Politics “I HAD always been committed to the armed struggle, and moreover, as the leader of the youth, I was the obvious choice. For the youths are, after all, the lifeblood of the army: it is the young who do the fighting.” Report by Elias Mambo These were the words of the late Zanu PF firebrand Edgar Tekere in his book A Lifetime of Struggle, capturing the role of the youths in national politics. Tekere spent his youth in detention and was imprisoned for 10 years until his release in December 1974, together with President Robert Mugabe, Enos Nkala and the late veterans Ndabaningi Sithole, Maurice Nyagumbo and Morton Malianga. The youths have been at the forefront of political change in the country since the colonial era and have radically changed the face of national liberation movements in most African countries. Likewise, Nelson Mandela, Emmerson Mnangagwa, the late John Chilembwe, Kenneth Kaunda and Mahatma Gandhi assumed leadership posit ...
A Message from Zakkir Ahmed – President of TAFI The Travel Agents Federation of India (TAFI), the country’s largest travel Association that was established more than 25 years ago, will be holding its much awaited Annual Convention in Durban, February 24-27, 2013. TAFI’s choice of Durban, in the Zulu Kingdom, is for more reasons than one. The Indian diaspora, makes it the second largest community in South Africa, and a great majority of them stay in the Kwazulu Natal area. Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Indian Nation, spent a good bit of his early years, in Natal, which saw his transformation from a barrister to an internationally renowned freedom fighter, one who inspired Mr. Nelson Mandela. Further over the years, the two countries have shared very close and healthy political, economic and historical ties. These relations have now been further strengthened by the burgeoning tourism exchanges.South Africa and Natal in particular have seen double digit growth from the Indian outbound market, which ...

HOW WE DO IT Organizations like United Nations, UN Women, and Human Rights Council are the prime institutions to which we should send our letters and emails. Let there be millions of letters flooding in the courier planes to their mailboxes each day. And let the billions of emails flood in their in-boxes and through their bandwidth. Even if we get spammed, at least, the quantity will be alarming. We can do our bit by just doing this. Send letter and Emails saying SAVE US (with the incidents happening around our country, rapes, corruption and violence), to anyone you know in foreign countries and ask them to expand this campaign. At a point the world will be with us and our government will have to change. We can change our country by writing and typing. It’s something which our leaders like Mahatma Gandhi to Nelson Mandela did to bring change. Let’s act and be open.

Visiting the spiritual home of immortality. “Eshi” Am so exited because of a telephone call I got now from a tourist company in Johannesburg. This evening- around 8 .00 pm, I will be accompanying a team of tourists from India in visiting the two story building where Mahatma Gandhi stayed in Johannesburg while practicing law in 1905. I will rightly get the same feeling I had when I visited Robben Island- where Nelson Mandela was held in captive for years. These places to me are more of the spiritual home immortality.
Imagine what India would be like today, if Mahatma Gandhi had remained in his law practice and ignored the plight of fellow Indians in South Africa. Imagine the status of Black South Africans today, if Nelson Mandela feared for his life and remained indifferent to the slavery of his people.

Imagine what Nigeria will be tomorrow, if you exercise courage and stand for what is right - no matter the person, tribe, religion, or state of its origin.

Greatness in our materialistic world is defined as fame, popularity, scholastic or economic achievement, and notoriety. GREATNESS MAY RESULT FROM THESE QUALITIES, BUT THEY ARE NOT THE DEFINITION OF GREATNESS. Greatness may best be defined by the people throughout history whom we consider great. Among those who would be considered great in the context of their influence and impact on human society are such names as Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther, Martin Luther King, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, George Washington Carver, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Mahatma Gandhi, Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Walt Disney, Alexander Graham Bell, Albert Einstein, Babe Ruth, Jesse Owens, Florence Nightingale, Helen Keller, Pablo Picasso, Sam Walton, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, the Wright Brothers, Steven Jobs, and Bessie Coleman.

There were many veterans who fought against apartheid rule in South Africa, but Nelson Mandela was the leading figure of the struggle. So also was Martin Luther King Jnr for Black America, Mahatma Gandhi for India and Kwame Nkrumah for Ghana. Coming to post-independence Nigeria, we had Zik, Awolowo and Ahmadu Bello. How can a ship have 3 captains? That was the beginning of the failure of our leadership.

Five of the great transformational leaders in history has Jesus Christ as their role models: George Washington, William Wilberforce, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi. "It is interesting because each chose to emulate Jesus’ behavior. It is ironic because, while Mother Teresa and Gandhi were not aligned on faith issues, they certainly were aligned on the quality of Jesus as a leader. No matter what one believes about who Jesus is, his influence and impact are undeniable and his legacy unsurpassed by any other leader." Davis H. Taylor (2007-08-23).

You lead, I’ll follow I recently read an article listing 10 great leaders in World History. The list was interesting on various levels. Here are the 10: Adolph Hitler, Fidel Castro, Mao Zedong, Mahatma Gandhi, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Muhammad, Nelson Mandela, Julius Caesar and Winston Churchill. My definition of a leader may be different than the author and would not include some of these on the list. A great leader is one who has many followers. It is true that many people followed Hitler, Castro, Zedong and Caesar, but at one point along the way the people weren’t given an option. If you chose to not follow any of those four it would not go well for you, up to and including the forfeiture of your life. Lincoln, although revered today, was not that popular during his presidency and in fact those who did not want to follow him were eventually forced to through a bloody war. The most interesting thing about the above list wasn’t who it included, but who it didn’t. Based on his followers ...

Many people I have encountered lately think owning a gun gives them courage & sense of security, however I feel that owning a gun is no sign of Courage! If you want see courage, look at the revolutionaries in Tahrir Square who faced down an entire military dictatorship without a single weapon - and won. Look at Mahatma Gandhi, who fought a world empire - and won. Look at Nelson Mandela.
Next deadliest warrior; Nelson Mandela vs Mahatma Gandhi, who will win?
Treat people with dignity and compassion. Even those folks who appear to be hard as nails often act this way as a defense against getting hurt. Remember that the people who are regarded as legendary humanitarians such as Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela built their reputations on treating others as their equals.
67 years to the service of humanity On the 18th of July this year, Dr.Nelson Mandela – arguably the most famous mortal to have come to this world after Abraham Linton and Mahatma Gandhi will celebrate his 94th birthday. Following Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday in June 2008, it was decided to celebrate Dr. Mandela’s birthday each year with a day dedicated to his life’s work and that of his charitable organizations, and to ensure his legacy continues forever. From 2010, 18 July was declared by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) as Nelson Mandela International Day. This day also coincides with the icon’s birthday. The celebration of this international day recognizes and gives credence to the former President’s commitment to Human Rights, conflict resolution and reconciliation. Mandela Day is an annual celebration of Nelson Mandela’s life and a global call to action for people to recognize their individual power to make an imprint and change the world around them and was created to inspi ...
Just seen an advert for 'Abraham Lincoln - The Vampire Hunter'... Now, I'm no American History expert, but I'm sure Lincoln was remembered for his work trying to abolish Slavery and the Gettysburg Address. ... Perhaps we may be treated to future classic's, such as: 'Mahatma Gandhi - The Lycanthrope Strangler' or 'Nelson Mandela - Zombie Exorcist' . Hhhmm.
Don`t allow an unhealthy ego to overide ur gud intentions.Individuals who hav the gr8test n most positive impact on society are not concerned with fame n fortune.Mahatma Gandhi,Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela,and thousands of others who are not as well-known,simply got on with the work.Greed n power were not part of their formula for living on purpose.
