I am hoping against hope that we Indians will not one day export Gandhi without keeping a bit of him, the way we have exported Buddha from this land. But even then, like Buddha, Gandhi is alive and provides some light to those who seek. Those who do not seek are the losers.
In 1947, just as India was becoming independent, Mahatma Gandhi was quietly protesting the sectarian violence that had engulfed the nation. He had moved to Kolkata's Hyderi Manzil along with some of his followers. On his 150th birthday, the house has become a full-fledged museum.
