Thousands of companies manufactured matches worldwide and used a variety of fancy labels to make their brand stand out. The match boxes had unusual topics but some were much prettier than others. This cover features Mahatma (M?-HÄT-m?). It is Sanskrit for "Great Soul". It is similar in usage to the modern Christian term saint. This epithet is commonly applied to prominent people like Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Lalon Shah and Jyotirao Phule. Rabindranath Tagore is said to have accorded, or popularized, this title for Gandhi
