Somehow India remembers everything about mahatma Gandhi except what he stood for.
Dear fellow journalists, Enough with the mahatma Obama shtick already.
On his first morning in India, he will spend time at a modest house where mahatma Gandhi used to stay in the city.
The Nobel committee said he was continuing in the noble tradition of mahatma Gandhi.
He visited the White House and advised Indian leader 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.
