Nobel Committee Regrets to Miss Gandhi

‘The greatest blunder done in the 106 years of Nobel foundation that Mahatma Gandhi did not receive Nobel Peace Prize’ this is statement made by Geir Lundestad, secretary, Norwegian Nobel Committee.

Mahatma Gandhi was shortlisted for the Nobel Peace prize as many as five times in 1946, 1947, 1948 and two times before World War II.

Today the Nobel committee are regretting on its past decisions.

The Euro-centric perception could have blamed for the decision not to award Nobel Peace Prize to Gandhi.

Does Gandhi really need any peace prize, whether it is Nobel Prize or anything else? They did not recognize Gandhi as the man who fought for peace and non-violence, this is there fault. They are regretting for that. I rate Mahatma Gandhi above these awards.

    Of course not. It might have been good, but to be called the Mahatma / Father of the Nation for such an ancient nation is a honorific to beat all. He managed to convince this widely disparate nation to follow him in his words and actions, and this was his greated mark / award. I remember reading this quote made by Einstein about him: “Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this walked the earth in flesh and blood.” (http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/a/alberteins109013.html).
    His belief was revolutionary in his time, it maybe that we are to a certain extent disregarding the core of his belief by saying that we should follow exactly what he said, instead of making our beliefs relevant to the times.
