We don’t follow him anymore. Nobody even remembers his life anymore. Sanjay Dutt made him popular for some time. Many of us debate if our country would have achieved freedom a lot earlier if it wouldn’t have been for him.
We fight at the smallest instance. We have become intolerant. After years of Independence, we now believe more in caste, religion, regional divide and less in our being Indian.
We are ready to hit anybody we think we can hit easily. We don’t believe in Non-violence and his birthday is just another holiday.
So when we hardly believed in him and his principals what difference would the glasses and watch make to us? Or we just keep them in museum like his we have kept his values?
