Nelson Mandela, a man who learnt by experience, who entirely created new world for people of south Africa in 85 years of his lifespan. He spent most of his lifetime in prison but never let his thoughts bounded by any bars. He was a symbol of peace dove and a heroic figure for thousands of people.
Dream big and dare to fail that’s what was his mantra in life. He took many steps and each of them modifies his life in a new shape. His family background emphasised to study English culture and government but he was interested in studying native African culture. He always stood by his roots. His idea of happiness was by seeing racial people getting mixed. He pursued his higher education from University of South Africa and elected elections.
“We, the people of South Africa, declare for all our country and the world to know:
That South Africa belongs to all who live in it, black and white, and that no government can justly claim authority unless it is based on the will of the people.” Nelson Mandela.
He compromised his family life and was separated from his children for a long period of time so that he could make a secured future for the people of Africa. Nelson Mandela faced criticism from all facets of life; he lost his friendship and love for the sake of building a strong base for natives and educating them. He tried allot to normalise the deep rooted dispute between Libya,US and Britain as two Libyans were accused of sabotaging Pan Am Flight 103.
He was a revolutionist, a philanthropist, a loving soul and a man who provided meaning to many lives. He will always be remembered not only for his noble acts but also as he did great deed of sacrifice and tolerance.
