Big question mark on Nobel prize for peace : Why Gandhi was ignored ?

Mohandas Gandhi (1869-1948) has become the strongest symbol of non-violence in the 20th century. It is widely held – in retrospect – that the Indian national leader should have been the very man to be selected for the Nobel Peace Prize. He was nominated several times, but was never awarded the prize. Why?
These questions have been asked frequently: Was the horizon of the Norwegian Nobel Committee too narrow? Were the committee members unable to appreciate the struggle for freedom among non-European peoples?" Or were the Norwegian committee members perhaps afraid to make a prize award which might be detrimental to the relationship between their own country and Great Britain?

Gandhi was nominated in 1937, 1938, 1939, 1947 and, finally, a few days before he was murdered in January 1948. The omission has been publicly regretted by later members of the Nobel Committee; when the Dalai Lama was awarded the Peace Prize in 1989, the chairman of the committee said that this was "in part a tribute to the memory of Mahatma Gandhi". However, the committee has never commented on the speculations as to why Gandhi was not awarded the prize, and until recently the sources which might shed some light on the matter were unavailable.

Gandhian Ideologist and Philosopher Naresh Kadyan, animal rights activist comes forward to raised this issue with the consultation of former Chairman of the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (Govt. of India) Shri Laxmidas, Chairman, National Khadi and Village Industries Board's Employees Federation (An apex body of all State KVIB's Employees Unions).

A principle is the expression of perfection, and as imperfect beings like us cannot practise perfection, we devise every moment limits of its compromise in practice. ~ M K Gandhi.

The British pride did not want... easy to understand why. And i think Gandhi would have said "Nobel Price? no thank you!". We, in the west give much importance to that award, but... Nobel made the money on nitroglycerine.

"He was nominated several times, but was never awarded the prize. Why?"
