24 Things Indians Love : No. 23 – Mahatma Gandhi

leave a comment »

Father of the Nation (India), Mahatma Gandhi died in 1948, but he is still the most popular person who can be found everywhere in an average Indian’s life.

Most significant presence of ‘Bapu’ is felt when you deal with Indian currency.

Most of them have his pictures and watermarks.

And that’s not all. All the major cities of India have a street named M.G. Road. M.G. Road? Mahatma Gandhi Road…. 🙂

And wait, M.G. Road is just not present in India alone. Many countries have paid their homage to Mahatma Gandhi by having streets named after him. Below one is the one in Durban, South Africa. And he is omnipresent as statues, all over the parks of India. Recently, India caught the craze of ‘Gandhigiri’ – Living the everyday life and managing things like Mahatma Gandhi.

I would like to add here that Indian government should start printing currency notes with pictures of other great Indians too. It will bring a much needed variety to Indian currency as well as allow other great Indians to be remembered for a longer time by the newer generations.
