Thankyou for this set. By now you will surely know of my involvement in peacebuilding, and therefore I very much appreciate this great man. The most powerful film that I have watched in my life was Gandhi!
Give the statue colors and it is like he's able to walk away to continue his struggle for peace and freedom. A great man and a picture to do right to him! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for your comments, Ian and Ed. Yes, Ian: I don't usually ask people to look at my photos! But I knew that you would appreciate the subject of these. (I think there's an especially strong response among those like May and me who were old enough as girls so that we remember the hunger strikes and the assassination.)
Maybe you already are informed via your own media, but after watching the 9 o'clock news here in Denmark I note this:
Gandhi's ashes scattered at sea
Ashes of Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi have been scattered off the coast of Mumbai to mark the 60th anniversary of his assassination
Thank you very much, Mogens, for the link. I hadn't seen this yet. It is interesting that the event particularly stirred the emotions of those in their 70s. At 71, I am old enough to remember not only the assassination itself, but the strife and the hunger strikes before it. (Some people of more recent generations are familiar with the movie at least!)
Beautiful place and photos
