Bangalore, Dec 6: With the death of Nelson Mandela, a living symbol of peace, a new question is soon to arise. What will people remember December 6, 2013 as? But as of now, people just want to express how they will miss this great man and yet again, Twitter becomes a main medium of expression.

After the long months of vigil as Nelson Mandela weakened, far from public view, many around the world awoke Friday to mourn and praise him and to ponder his legacy.

As flags flew at half-staff across South Africa, a sense of loss, blended with memories of inspiration, spread around the world from President Barack Obama in Washington to members of Britain's royal family and on to those who saw Mandela as an exemple of struggle.

"A giant among men has passed away," said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of India. "This is as much India's loss as South Africa's."
