Tributes to Gandhiji

  • Mrs. Sarojini Naidu

    Governor of the United Provinces

    Gave his country its freedom and its flag Mahatma Gandhi, whose frail body was committed to the flames yesterday, is not dead. It was right that the cremation took place in the midst of the dead kings who were buried in Delhi, for he was the kingliest of all kings. It is right also that he who was the Apostle of Peace should have been taken to the cremation ground with all the honours of a great warrior. Far greater than all warriors who led armies to battle was this little man, the bravest, the most tried friend of all. Delhi has become the centre and the sanctuary of the great revolution- ary who emancipated his enslaved country from foreign bondage and gave to it its freedom and its flag.
