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.

Gandhi also is a landmark for me. I think it has succeeded in conveying the spirituality of this place. Congratulations Marilyn.

I've always admired Ghandi! Thank you for showing us where he lived, Marilyn, and also for the link. I read the account of his assassination...how sad that it's always the best leaders that get killed, there are so many of them...Anne

Thank you, Tamás, Anne, and Daniela, for your visit and comments. A week or two ago I noticed the upcoming anniversary and decided to make this my little memorial project in his honour. Marilyn
