Mahatma’s network follows whereever he goes?

Who has seen Gandhi in a t-shirt, cargo pants and sandals and with a cell phone and a pug on a leash? An artist has.

At an exhibition at the Raj Bhavan in Bangalore on Saturday, an artist’s interpretation of the Mahatma in modern times, attracts the attention of a young follower on his 141th birthday.

    Yeh to Gandhiji ka Badappan hai, that people do anything with Gandhiji and get away with it :)

    Super, lot of guts. Remove Gandhi ji’s head and put some living congress politicians head and see what happens! One result would have been that Churumuri would not have published this article!

    Now some wretch is going to scream, “Insult to Gandhi” though by forgetting him, we have insulted him enough and more.

    I think “wherever” does not have two ‘e’s…

    “Future generations will find it hard to believe that such a man of flesh and blood, walked this earth” (or something to that effect) – Albert Einstein
    He wasn’t kidding. Already there a lot of people who do not know who Gandhi was.

    wherever or where ever

    Something doesn’t look okay… is it the way the phone is held?

    Would the man have worn the sandals/cargoes, held a mobile- none of which are likely to be of cottage industry origin and put a dog on a leash- The artist should have had a reasonable imagination when prtraying someone who said the world has enough for everybody’s need but not for everyone’s greed.

    Read the story of Gandhi’s pin in Masti’s Navaratri- combination of Masti, Mysore and Kannada made my Gandhi Jayanthi.
