Gandhiji’s friends taught Gandhi the habit of smoking cigarettes. He used to take money from home without his elder’s permission. His father never doubted him. Once his father casually mentioned to him about the missing money. Then Gandhi confessed that he had stolen the money and promised never to lie or go against his father’s faith in him. He never stole again in his life. His father’s faith made Gandhi a mahatma.

Gandhiji was ready even to give up his life for a good cause. If he made any decision, some people agreed to it and some people did not agree. However, after thinking that it was a good cause, he did not pay attention to anyone else. Gandhiji policy was, Do or Die. After taking a decision, it could not be avoided that many people opposed it. But by the time it was put into action, everyone followed him. Nehru also did not agree with Gandhi on a few matters, but when it was put into practice he used to listen only to Gandhi’s words.

Gandhiji always used to have Rama Naama on his lips and Bhagavad Gita in his hands. He used to take Bhagavad Gita to restroom and read once he has taken bath, because he used to not have time and people dint allow him to read. He is indeed a Great Saint
