Thank you for the nice article on Mahatma Gandhi. The Correct spelling is Gandhi and not Ghandi.
He is called Mahatma (Maha=Great & Atma= Soul). His real name is Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.
I recall one humorous anectode. Mrs Indira Gandhi is the daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru and she became a Gandhi, after she married Feroz Gandhi (not actually related to Mahatma Gandhi).
On one of her official visits in her capacity as Prime Minister, to the US, President Reagan had hosted a dinner in her honour and he he is said to have concluded his welcome address thus:
"Now, I welcome Ms Indira Gandhi, Prime Minister of India and daughter of Mahatma Gandhi".
So much for his general knowledge!
