Saturday Photohunt - Letters

Posted by Picasa

Today being the birth anniversary of the peace loving non violent propagator Mahatma Gandhi, am posting one of the letters written by Mahatma Gandhi to Hitler urging him to desist from going to war. This is on display at Mani Bhavan in Mumbai where Gandhi stayed while in Bombay and headquartered India's freedom movement.
