Gandhi did not want and does not need statues

India should see the removal of Gandhi’s statue in Ghana as the decision of a sovereign people having a say in the design of their political architecture and their public spaces.

Birthday wishes for Mahatma Gandhi

Between 2nd October 2018 and 2nd of October 2019, we shall hear many effusively complimentary things said about the Mahatma. Can we hope that at least some of these tributes are as insightful as those offered, during Gandhi’s lifetime, by Jan Smuts and Verrier Elwin?
