Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (1918-2013)

"There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires". These were the words said by revolutionary leader Nelson Mandela. The former South African President died on December 5 at the age of 95. A collection of images from his life. Compiled by Deeksha Vasanth

No one can understand his contribution until you actually visit and be your self in SA and see it to believe it. He is an icon for resistance..a true leader...a visionary and a respected man..RIP Mr. will remember you for all good things you have done to this society...A sad day for all of us...

Nelson Mandela was a great human being. He was Gandhi of South Africa.
He dedicated his life in jail for benefit of others in the world. He
showed to the world 'what is called humanity'.
