Jalgaon: President Pratibha Patil on Sunday said Mahatma Gandhi was not just a person, but a "power" whose teachings can give the youth new strength and vision.

Speaking at a gathering after inaugurating Gandhi
Research Foundation here, Patil said she was happy that
memorabilia and writings of the father of the nation would be
housed in the institute in her hometown.

"Gandhiji had visited Jalgaon in 1927," she said.
"It is necessary not only to know Gandhiji, but also to understand his thoughts. If the youth understand Gandhiji completely, then a new strength and vision will be created among the present generation. Gandhi was not just a person, but a power."
