This man, though deceased, is known right across the world and is still both admired and revered. Though a lawyer, one who could have made a lot of money, Gandhi instead dedicated his life to ridding his country of the British colonialists who kept his people in a state of servility while they bled it economically.
He did it without employing force and instead used non-violent civil disobedience as his method. He adopted a meagre lifestyle so that most folk in India could identify with him. He spun the cloth for his own clothes, lived austerely, ate simply, and certainly nothing that he did contributed to global warming. His iconic legacy will live forever.
This man, Rupert Murdoch is one of the world's richest and most powerful men. Born in Australia into a publishing family he proved to be a formidable businessman. Seeking a larger stage he moved to America and, taking out American citizenship, via Fox he has pursued interests all around the world in television and the print media. No one knows just how big his already massive empire will end up or how rich he will finally be when he dies.
Government are frightened of him because of the power he can exert through the media and other media tycoons watch him carefully. He lives in a 14 million dollar house and enjoys all the trappings that immense wealth brings. He and his enterprises definitely contribute a great deal to global warming. He embodies the capitalist dream and is, for some an icon.
Two famous but entirely different men driven by two completely different motives: one by a selfless, deep concern for his country and his people; the other perhaps purely by self-interest and greed.
P.S. Look carefully at the two faces. They are like a mirror!
