Two Mahatmas: Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi of India and Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev of Russia.
India's freedom-champion Mahatma Gandhi teaches, "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong."
Many world figures over the years have ruthlessly spoken ill of President Gorbachev. With his indomitable mind and his compassionate heart, the supreme Pilot of the Soviet Union has smilingly forgiven them. Slowly and steadily a peaceful life of harmony is blossoming in the heart-garden of Mother-Earth.
