Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was a pioneer of peaceful civil disobedience, but his life ended with his assassination on January 30, 1948. In this first of a series of four photos, you see the room in which he lived in New Delhi during his last months. There is a remarkable eye-witness account of his assassination.
I think, what makes Mahatma Gandhi so exceptional, is, that he lived and died FOR his goal and not AGAINST something, and thus he reached his goal for the people. The entire world is - more than ever - in great need of many more human beings like him.
Great photo! :)
Gandhi also is a landmark for me. I think it has succeeded in conveying the spirituality of this place. Congratulations Marilyn.
