Nelson Mandela the Madiba is no more (1918 – 2013)

“I hate race discrimination most intensely

and all its manifestations. I have faught it

all during my life: I fight it now, and will do

so until the end of my days”

Nelson Mandela

July 18, 1918 – Dec 05, 2013


Modern South Africa has lost his father. The international symbol of the world, admired by young & old, blacks & white has left this earth for a better place.


Rest in Peace Madiba!

Nelson  Rolihlahla Mandela born as a tribal prince, who lost his freedom to fight for the freedom of others. Faught for the  freedom of the black South Africans against the  anti apartheid government of that time and jailed  for treason for 27 1/2 years (1964 – 1990) in the notorious  prison Robben Island.

Won a Nobel Peace prize in 1993 (shared with de Klerk) and became the first democratically elected black President of  the modern South Africa in 1994.  He had the great ability to bridge the gap between the blacks and whites of the Modern South Africa. He also  became an advocate  for fighting against Aids .

Nelson Mandela  was also known as Madiba  by his tribal name retired from  public life in 2004

I have re-blogged the  article which I  wrote on this blog in June 2013 while he was admitted at the hospital.

Finally Heaven has got ready to accept the great leader of earth.

Quotes of Nelson Mandela

There are only a handful of  men & women on this earth who became the Masters of the situation and sacrificed their whole lives for the good will of fellow human beings.

Martin Luther King (Jr) from The United states of America, Mahatma Gandhi of India, 14th  Dalai Lama in Exile , Mother Theresa of India , Aung San Suu kyi  of  Burma ,  Pakistani  school girl Malala  Yousafzai  and  Nelson Mandela (Madeba) are few of them.

While I type, the nonagenarian  Nelson Mandela of South Africa  is fighting  for  his life in a hospital.

I would like to share some of Nelson Mandela’s quotes below.


“Education is the most powerful weapon 

which you can use to change the World”


“After climbing a great hill, one only finds that

there are many more hills to climb.”


“If you want to make peace with your enemy,

you have to work with your enemy. Then he

becomes your partner.”


“A good head and a good heart are

always a formidable combination”

Quotes of Nelson Mandela.
