Mahatma Gandhi, the global saint, the angel of truth and non-violence, Father of Nation for India never received the coveted Nobel Peace Prize. On the other hand the award of this prize to likes of Henry Kissinger and Yasser Arafat has been the fact.
Many argue that peace prize to Gandhiji would have been actually a felicitation of Nobel award itself.
Why Mahatma Gandhi never won the prize? Is it because he was a controversial candidate at the time of his nomination (he was nominated for 5 times)? Or is do a person like Mahatma Gandhi do need a Nobel in first place?
