Mont Blanc Tribute to Mahatma Gandhi to Salute his Stand on Non Voilence, Peace and Cultural Ethos.

Mont Blanc on Tuesday launched a set of premium pens costing Rs 11.3 lakh under its limited-edition series commemorating 241 miles travelled byMahatma Gandhi during the Salt March.

West Projects Brand Gandhi to Promote Pen Just in Time for Gandhi Jayanti. Oct 2 .Gandhiji Stood for Truth, Peace, and Non Voilence. and workd to enchace the Cultures

Gandhiji Was a Simple Man with High Values, His dress code and his personality can not be very attractive to the west, once they made joke of his Dress Code today the times have changed they salute his values and principles.

He took the brunt of the British, Brutal abuse and hurt on his body and soul with a smile and stood for peace and non voilence.

The Irony is India and Indians are failing today to inculcate the principles and values he stood for.

Our political system, our Corportate System, Our Unions, Our Media, Our Services, Our Aam Admi is no way near to the values set by Gandhiji. Baring few none can claim to be near to Gandhiji”s Value System.

We are happy putting his poster in our Govt Buildings, and using his name only on our currency notes with very little respect to him.

“The System India” is Under Threat of Moral Drain. Unfortunate.

We should be proud we are Indians Because Gandhi is ours and he lived and died for the unity of Faith, unity of Nation,stived to enhace Indian Culture.

He fought against the Enemies of India the British, and stood as a Iron Wall against the attrocities of British. Always voiced that we Indians are superior in our souls to the West and West is not a culture to be admired and followed.

The Irony is The West is respecting his values and principles today and we are keeping him in shelve only to open with a message on Oct 2. 

It is good the west is appreciateing the values he stood FOR,  in most respected manner by associateing him with a pen, to promote non voilence and peace in the world. At a time when voilence is order of the times, and love for peace has lost its fragrance.

We know pen is mightier than the sword. Pen also symbolic to truth and non voilance.

Some may differ by saying the west is using his name for material gains, I don’t agree with this kind of arugment.

We have not done enough to promote Brand Gandhi we have no right to suspect otherers when they try to teach a lesson or two of Gandhi to the World.

In a time where in we slipped to levels where Shoe was Mightier than the pen, for a Jounalist who hit P Chidambarram with a shoe, when he failed to get answers to his questions. And Advami, Manmohan, Bush recived the shoe for some reason or the other.

World needed to prove that Pen is still mightier than the sword and shoe, for all times.

It is good that a westerner thought of giving respect to Gandhiji By using him as an Icon for pormoting peace and non-voilence.

Today world is suffering from both.

After 60 plus years after Gandhi who was killed irronically in  a violent act by Nathuram Godse a  fellow Indian.

 Babu was put to rest by an act he stood to earse all his life.

He wanted Volence in us to Die. But the tragedy was a Voilent Indian Godse Killed Babu, the Mahatma.  

On the other hand it sounds that the Ashram of Gandhiji is straved with funds for its development and living up to the values Gandhiji Stood for.

Why we Indian can’t do more on promoting Gandhi Ideology why are we content by just saying he is Father of the Nation. Why ?

The donation by Mont Balnc is going for building a block for the distitute children by the Ashram authority headed by his Grand Son Tushar Gandhi.

When we fail some one will rise and do our job unfinished by Gandhiji.
