Thumbs up Anna Hazare refuses to accept the title of "Mahatma"


Deprecating any comparisons with Mahatma Gandhi, anti-graft campaigner Anna Hazare has rejected a resolution passed by the Gram Sabha of his native Ralegan Siddhi village conferring on him the title 'Mahatma'.

"I am a simple Indian trying to follow the path of greats like Gandhiji, Mahatma Phule and Dr BR Ambedkar. People should try to follow ...the ethics and values of these 'Mahatmas' in their lives to elevate themselves," the Gandhian said.

The village Gram Sabha had passed a resolution on Gandhi Jayanti on Monday conferring on its famous son the title of 'Mahatma' in recognition of his contributions to the nation.

The septuagenarian asked the villagers not to call him 'Mahatma' as he was against such "deification" for carrying out his duties as a common citizen.

A statue of Mahatma Gandhi was unveiled outside the Padmavati temple, where Hazare is staying, to mark the Gandhi Jayanti.

Default "Title"

Gentle men ! "Mahatma is not a title. Its a feeling or quality which very few people can possese. No doubt Anna is a saint(Mahatma)."
