On the occasion of Mahatma Gandhi’s 70th birthday (1939):

“Generations to come, it may well be, will scarce believe that such a man as this one ever in flesh and blood walked upon this Earth.” – Albert Einstein

Gandhi, despite the passing of many decades since his death, remains an inspiration for millions, his simple philosophy and tireless work in pursuit of justice, equality and human rights are to this day the very foundation on which so many men and women, some with little knowledge of his extraordinary life and work, continue the struggle for change and the right of all human beings to be treated with dignity.

“The person who has influenced my life, in terms of action, more than anybody is Mahatma Gandhi” – Martin Luther King
