Unconventional Soul

From a mud raking viral thread on Facebook, which inspired this article!
Einstein was right about Mahatma, "Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood has walked upon this earth". For the commonest among us, it is unbelievable and out of touch with the common-reality that a common component of men and women, the soul, of a commoner amongst us could traverse such unfathomable distances!

We doubt, not his existence, but his legend! I will cross my sphere of comfort to guess those who doubt such human ability, believe in a Supreme Being. They believe such feats are possible only for a supernatural being. They take comfort in the truth that Gandhi wasn't a saint since birth. That is why they doubt he couldn't have become one, because they realize the difficulty in such an endeavour.

This disbelief he inspires in generations born decades after his death is not surprising, considering the enormous disbelief in his ways and in turn immense opposition he encountered during his life time. However, clouded by time, the current generation alleges that he had desires, a circumference they are unable to cross.

What attracts them in these allegations is not the pursuit of truth, but the hope that the possibility of sainthood of commoners will be disproved. Such proof will free them from the inferiority of their aims and efforts.
