This is the path Ghandi took on January 30, 1948, to the place where he was assassinated. There is a memorial at the place of his assassination.

The way never ends.

The world is full of injustice, suppression and exploitings in all scales, from individuals to communities to whole continents.

Thank you, Marilyn for recalling to our minds the unique efficacy of a peace loving man and thus to show, what a single person is able to achieve.

My best wishes, May

TEN STARS to you Marilyn - for bringing this subject up. The whole World surely could use a person like him at the present time. But are there any? I don't see who it could be.

Greetings, Mogens.

Thanks Marilyn for broadening my travel experience. I share all of the awe that was expressed here for that man, and I'm sorry to say to Mogens that his replacement is not among the current applicants for the job.

What a wonderful way to memorialize his humility. Thanks again.

Thank you, May, Mogens, Wallace, Palmina, and Hank for sharing with me in reflecting on this place and this man. Our world sorely needs leadership like his, dedicated to peace and reconciliation.

Marilyn, what a thoughtful photo, and a very respectful memorial. It was Confucius, not Gandhi, who said "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step", but this memorial certainly brings that phrase to my mind.

Gandhi showed us the steps. He said "First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win."

I'm in Quebec City right now, so I'm slow in replying, but thank you, Nawitka, Paty, and Pam, for visiting this memorial. Marilyn

Interesting shot. I've been in New Delhi too, but never seen this. Have you been in Kolkata?

Marilyn Whiteley on March 28, 2008

This is not in the common list of tourist attractions, but fortunately it was on the itinerary of our small group. It was definitely worth a visit.
