He taught us the great values of love, truth and non-violence by being the noble epitome of those highest human virtues. ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world’, he not only said these words but lived by them. He proved to the world the power of moral strength and showed us the highest form of ethics and compassion. My heartfelt tributes to Bapu Ji.”
