Dear Bapu

As a youth of this country, the country which you helped gain independence back in 1947, I would like to highlight certain issues that entangle modern India. Corruption, violence, terrorism and many such have engulfed the sanctity of this nation. The people of this great country have forgotten the principles...

Dear Gandhi Ji

Dear Gandhi Ji, You are an icon, a symbol of non-violence; not only to Indians, but to people all over the world, regardless of their citizenship. The hope that you symbolise for the exploited minorities is immense and very significant. Now, every group uses peaceful and non-violent means to...

Dear Mahatma Gandhi

Hello. My name is Varanya. I am not your fan. In fact I’m not particularly fond of you, mostly because I’ve never met you and I’m definitely not a fan of your ideas because I think that they aren’t very well thought out. It...

Dear Mr. Gandhi

Your birthday is indeed a happy occasion as we all get a welcome break during the week. How good it must feel that the whole nation sings your praises, students are taught to follow you, newspapers and television channels flash photos from your twilight years and quote your words...

Dear Bapu !

Years have passed since you fought for our freedom but now it seems as if we are going back to those days of being servants... Servants of a corrupt system, greedy leaders and helpless democrats... India, which is known as the world’s biggest democratic country, is indignantly hollow from its...

Dear Mr.Gandhi

First of all, hearty congratulations to you on your 143rd birthday! Gandhiji , I really appreciate what you did for our country, India, 63 years ago but all your efforts seem to have gone in vain. Your principles and ideology just seem to be a joke to the citizens of...

Dear Gandhiji

First of all, a very happy birthday to you on your 143rd birth anniversary! We know that you cherish the date of 30th Jan more than the date of 2nd Oct, for you must have heaved a sigh of relief after your assassination, since you never again needed to see...

Dear Gandhi

Where do I start? My troubled mind is so full of disturbing thoughts, the feeling of hopelessness so strong, I wonder whether pouring my heart out to you will bring any relief. But let me begin somewhere; let me see if I can convey the angst within. The entire concept...

Dear Bapu

It has been more than sixty years now, since you ceased to tread the path of this world, and truthfully speaking, I am happy for you. Why I say so is because the thought of a man - who gave his entire life striving to bring the audacious Indians...

Dear Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

People admire your ardent support and leadership in setting the country free through your ideology of non-violence. Though it took FOREVER to break from the shackles of the British Raj (a goal which could have been much easily achieved otherwise), it was finally possible for the people of the...

Mr. Gandhi

It seems everyone is celebrating your 143rd birth anniversary and your supposed progeny are busy spending the tax, which I pay every month, only to glorify you in a meaningless and a spineless manner. I still don’t get why they are doing it. Any which ways, that apart, I am sure...

Dear Mr. Gandhi

Things have changed a lot since your birth till today when you are turning 143 years old. Here are all the changes that we as ordinary citizens have witnessed in these six decades. Indiais like a donkey carrying a sack of gold- the donkey does not know what it’s carrying...

To, Mr. M.K. Gandhi

I really dunno why the heck I’m writing this letter. Probably coz somewhere deep down I’d love to ask you a lot of stuff. Since you are a lawyer and all, I thought you’d like a formal letter. And now I’m writing crap out of nervousness... you being a...

Dear Mohan Sir

Though you are encountering the address of “Mohan Sir” for the first time, but I am sure you are not amazed by it. Sir, let me make it clear to you that it is neither that I have read some 10-12 pages of “My Experiments with Truth” nor a...

Dear Big Daddy

I hope you don't mind that salutation. As the father of the nation, I guess we can call you that. It's okay, right? So, I am hoping everything is great, up above. Unlike the 'kalyug' (modern, unethical era) we're living in, things must be cool where you are. I was...

Dear Mr. Gandhi

I know that letters to dead men hardly serve any purpose other than to vent one’s feelings about something which happened long ago, over which one had little or no control or something one was not even around to witness. You were gone more than three decades and a half...

Happy Birthday Bapu!

Today is a day of celebration. Our country is going to celebrate not just your birthday but also the man you are. Through the course of your life, as a political and spiritual figure, you have been able to successfully exude great values and ideas that a majority of...

Respected Mr. Gandhi

Firstly, I must extend my heartiest congratulations to you on your ability to retain the salutation. For, in today’s scenario, not many political leaders in India have it in them to acquire such “respect”, let alone hold on to it. Quite frankly, I cannot recount a single name in...

Bapu’s Birthday Party

This is my third letter to you. Although I understand that you are a busy man and have loads of movies lined up, I am a little annoyed with you for ignoring my first two letters. Even that neighbourhood kid Pintoo Sharma got a reply to his letter, and...

Dear Bapu

You gave the concept of truth and non-violence, not just to India, but to humanity at large. With the amount of violence we see every day, there is an urgent need to revive it and sensitize people towards it. The use of violence in terms of wars and invasions for...

Dear Mahatma Gandhi

On the occasion of your 143rd birthday, here are some thoughts about how our nation has evolved in the past 66 years. You once said “A man is but the product of his thoughts, what he thinks, he becomes.” Well, in that case, today, the final product would not be of...
