Mahatma Gandhi Community Forum

Dear Friends,


I just heard about  an interesting incident and the above subject. I would like to share and also know the authentcity of the incident.


On the death of any prominent  leader it is a practise of United Nations Organisation to bring down the Flag of the respective Nation as a mark of respect.


But on the death of Mahatma Gandhji the United Nations Flag was brought down along with other Flags as a mark of respect to the great soul.


Till date the flag has not been brought down for any other leader other than Gandhji.


What a homage paid to that great soul, infact Gandhji did not hold any position... in any political party including the Indian National Congress..Still he commanded the respect nation wide.
