Delhi, India

Marble carvings in the shape of feet document Mohandas Gandhi’s last footsteps, immediately before he was assassinated by a Hindu nationalist in 1948. The memorial is sobering; a simple yet profound way to remember such a great man.

“A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.”

“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”

“Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err.”
-Mohandas Gandhi
1869-1948
