gandhi ji


Often in the papers I read references to Gandhi when discussing current affairs in India. "...would Gandhi of supported this? ...is this what Gandhi ji had in mind for an independent country?" 'ji' means sir or maam, sign of respect.

India is changing in some ways rapidly, such as finacially on the other hand the infrastructure is still shabby. Citizens have a ways to go realizing the power they can have as members of a democracy. Of course that is nothing unique to India, it can be said of citizens of other democracies as well.
