Piece from his dairy

Gandhi by Jeevan

As I was whizzing through the air yesterday
and looking at the trees,
I saw that beneath all the change
that these mighty trees daily underwent,
there was a little something that persisted
Every leaf has its own separate life
It drops and withers
But the tree lives on

Gandhi has not written much about nature, music or drama. But in this diary we could read a letter he wrote to Kallenbach, his close friend in South Africa in which Gandhi talked about trees.

A geart poem to remeber on Gandhi Jayanthi. Thanks for sharing. You painting is awesome. One suggestion - he should have been little thin and the lip looks too pink for Gandhi. May be your next painting will address this. Cheers Jeevan
