Mahatma (“Great Soul”) was Gandhi’s title among millions of Indians. Along the route of his tours, he had to deal with the unthinking adoration of huge crowds; he could barely work during the day or rest at night because of their unrelenting adoration.
His fame spread throughout the world during his lifetime and only increased after his death as he wrote, “The woes of the Mahatmas are known only to the Mahatmas.” He is now one of the most widely recognized people in the world.
