|In my country, we go to prison first |
and then become President- Mandela
Mandela died at his residence in Johannesburg at the age of 95 on 6 December, 2013. He was one of the greatest human beings of all times and a charming personality with due regard for truth and equality. He was the first black President of South Africa, a chair he got after serving a 28 years in jail. What a man he was! Today, we cannot go a day being locked up in a room and this man spent 28 years of his life in a lockup! Commendable!
Throughout his life, he struggled to establish democracy in South Africa and gave important virtues of humanity such as forgiving to the world. The exemplary hero was awarded with the highest civilian honor "Bharat Ratna" for his dedicated efforts and true leadership. He also won the Nobel Prize in 1993.
I haven't studied the work of the legend in much detail; however, whatever I have read and heard about him, I know he was a great human being, a person for change and an inspiration all! Today, when he has left the world, let us owe to continue his legacy and work towards making our country a better place to live. Yes, it is difficult, but not impossible though! As Mandela quotes, "It always seems impossible until its done."
