From the Paper:

"In 1944 Albert Einstein said, "Generations to come, it may be, will scarcely believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon earth." He was talking about Mahatma Gandhi. Gandhi's real name was Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. His followers called him Mahatma (or Great Soul) as though it were his first name. In India he is also Father of the Nation (Wikipedia, 2006). Because Gandhi was such a complex person, it is difficult to try to capture who he really was."
