10 Things You Might Not Know About Mahatma Gandhi

#3.       Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

It is true that Gandhi was a man who preached and followed peaceful ways, but he never won a Nobel Peace Prize despite being nominated for it in 1937, 1938, 1939 and 1947. He was also nominated in 1948 but the committee decided not to present him the award posthumously. No winner was named that year with the committee saying that there was “no suitable living candidate”.

#4.       The Shy Kid

while he was growing up, barely a few people would have predicted that he would one day command an entire nation. As a boy, Gandhi was extremely shy and a middling student. He would run back home right after school so that he wouldn’t have to talk to anyone.

The same shy kid later became the father of the nation with millions of followers.
