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.
