Gandhi Jayanti




Gandhi Jayanti today.

The book excerpt demonstrates Gandhi’s anxiety regarding the proper attire for his family on the eve of leaving for South Africa in 1897.  The picture is taken on their return to India in 1915. Gandhi seems to have switched to Indian attire. Kasturba still wears her saree Parsee style but the shoes seem to have been discarded.
