Importance of Rajghat in Indian Politics

Standard

Gandhiji was shot down in 1947. His memorial is Rajghat in Delhi.

Year after year, new Prime Minister or Chief Minister takes office, he visits first this place and bows his or her head in respect.

What was so great about this simple man called Gandhiji? Why he exalts his influence even after so many years after his death?

One answer could be : He made a decision to worship Truth as his God since his early childhood. Then year after year, his life was an experiment. Sticking to truth sometimes destroyed him. Sometimes made him.

But till his death, he tried to purify not only his actions, but also his thoughts on touchstone of Truth.

It is the power of Truth which people worship when they bow to Rajghat.
