To pay tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his 151st birth anniversary, the London’s India House was lit up with popular quotes of the Indian leader. A video of the projection was shared on Twitter by Amish Tripath, the director of the Nehru Centre in London.

The video, tweeted by Tripath on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, begins with ‘Vaishnav Jan To’ — a devotional poem by Gujarati poet-saint Narsinh Mehta, which is said to be a favourite of Gandhi — playing in the background as the projections showed various excerpts from the leader’s life. “Video Projection on India House, London on 2nd October 2020,” wrote Tripath while sharing the clips.
