Why do you insist being born again? People have forgotten you” Dharmaraj insisted.
“ That’s why ! I want to remind them of our legacy . “
“ No, Mohan Das they don’t need you. Stop thinking about your country . Your role is over.”
Nostalgia had overpowered Mohan Dass alias Mahatma Gandhi. He was missing his motherland badly and requesting Dharamraj for rebirth .
Dharamraj didn’t want him to make sacrifices once again .
There were some ungrateful people enjoying the bliss of independence, yet condemning him day and night.
Exasperated by his constant pleadings, Dharamraj made him an offer.
“ Rebirth is not within my jurisdiction,I can allow you to visit your country for one day.”
‘ Be careful this news shouldn’t reach other inmates,”
So Mahatama Gandhi alighted from heaven on 15th August 2022 .
He was sure he knew Delhi as the back of his hand and would reach Red Fort in no time.
“ What place is this ? “ bewildered at high rising buildings he forgot his way.
He was elated to see tricolour hoisted at every building.
Mellifluous music of ‘Vande Matram ‘ was wafting in the air.
Pleased with the patriotic fervour he tried to move but was caught unawares .in the traffic jam.
A speeding car swished past him.
“ Look at this old man? “ a few people laughed. “ He is wearing no shirt in the august heat,”
“ Must be an actor, how exactly like Gandhi he appears.”
“ Who follows Gandhian principles now! Still they enact plays to remember his hackneyed ideals of Peace ,Justice and Equality.”reiterated another.
“ Just misleading younger generation.” Third one chimed in.
“ What !” Gandhi stood agape .Utterly mortified he decided to return there and then .
