President Obama visited the former home of peace activist mahatma Gandhi in India today.
On his first morning in India, he will spend time at a modest house where mahatma Gandhi used to stay in the city.
For the second half of his life, mahatma Gandhi was not straight, gay, or bisexual: He was, by choice, celibate.
First film recording of mahatma Gandhi, 1931, is now available on YouTube.
The Nobel committee said he was continuing in the noble tradition of mahatma Gandhi.
It was a sort of skeleton, or a ghost, or perhaps a mahatma!
But not many people have met a mahatma, at least to their knowledge.
The mahatma wholeheartedly believes in the inherent nobility of man.
But whether he is what is called a mahatma I am sure I do not know.
Why does he not make people believe that he is mahatma Ghandi and the Ali brothers rolled into one?
1884, literally "great-souled," from Sanskrit mahatman, from maha "great," from PIE root *meg- "great" (see magnate) + atman, "soul, principle of life," properly "breath" (see atman). In esoteric Buddhism, "a person of supernatural powers." In common use, as a title, a mark of love and respect. Said to have been applied to Gandhi (1869-1948) in 1915 by poet Rabrindranath Tagore.
