Mahatma Gandhi is an embodiment of plural, secular India

Dear Madam,
It is really shocking that when we have been celebrating his 150th birth anniversary, Mahatma Gandhi has to commit suicide in a question paper of a school in Gujarat and thereafter again has to die in an accident in a school booklet in Odisha! None can hide the heinous crime committed by a fanatic called Godse. Unfortunately, there are people in this country who even want to build a temple in memory of Godse because they fail to realise who Gandhi really is. Mahatma Gandhi is more than his symbolic glasses. He is an embodiment of plural, secular India. He must not be reduced to only as a champion of sanitation.
