Gandhi Journal Article-I : Gandhi and Novel Peace Prize

Mahatma Gandhi may not have received the Nobel Peace Prize, but he has certainly given us over a dozen Peace Prize winners!

Malala Yousafzai-Gandhi-Aung San Suu Kyi

Amongst all the Nobel Peace Prize winners, the two most deserving persons to receive it are women and both are from Asia, something we can be proud of. The first one is Malala Yousafzai, and the second is Aung San Suu Kyi of erstwhile Burma now Myanmar.
While India and Pakistan are exchanging fire at the border, each flexing its muscles threatening each other with destruction, comes the announcement of two persons, unknown to each other, being recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize. Whether this is just a coincidence or a planned thought-out decision on the part of the Nobel Committee we will never know, but this event is certainly one that should put leaders of both the countries to shame.
