Happy birthday Mahatma Ghandiji – 143 today

Gandhi’s birthday, 2nd October. ( born Gujarat, India. 1869).  Bronze statue, Wellington, NZ

About a year ago I was surprised to see a bronze statue of Mahatma Ghandiji outside the Wellington Railway Station – however it seems it was gifted to the city in 2007 by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations on behalf of the Indian people.

Today about 60 or 70 people gathered at this statute to celebrate the Mahatma’s birthday: he was born in Gujarat, India. Enjoy these photos I took.



Wellington’s Mayor and the Mexican Ambassador were there[slideshow]
