Gandhi writings going public


Herald News ServicesJanuary 6, 2009

The thought-provoking literary works of Mahatma Gandhi, India's iconic freedom fighter, are set to go public after the copyright on his writings and speeches lapses this month.

Anyone will now be able to publish the writings and speeches of the legendary leader, often referred to as the Father of the Nation, since the copyright on these works expires 60 years after his death.

Gandhi, who pioneered the philosophy of non-violent resistance to the British occupation of India, was assassinated on Jan. 30, 1948 in New Delhi by a Hindu radical.

Gandhi had given his works to the Gujarat-based Navajivan Trust which he founded, but according to the Copyright Act of 1957, works of a person go into the public domain 60 years after their death.

Trust authorities said they did not want to ask the Indian government for an extension of the copyright, based on the leader's philosophies.

"If you consider the spirit of Gandhian thought, one should not ask for such extension. And we have considered this issue and we are not going to ask for such extension," Jitendra Desai, managing trustee of the Navajivan Trust, told Reuters Television.

Since its inception, the Navajivan Trust has published some 300 volumes of Gandhi's works including articles, letters and speeches, as well as translations of his autobiography

There is an interesting video connecting Mahatma Gandhi to Agakhan Palace in Pune.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWtbi4SQZTk

YouTube description:

"Located in Yerwada, Pune, the exquisite Aga Khan Palace is surrounded by the lavish green gardens. It was built in 1892 by Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah Aga Khan III. It is a national monument of India's freedom movement. Aga Khan Palace is also known as Gandhi National Memorial because of its close association with Mahatma Gandhi."

Gandhi sandals, glasses to go up for auction


Herald News ServicesFebruary 13, 2009

Mahatma Gandhi's trademark leather sandals and steel-rimmed glasses, as well as his watch, will be auctioned in New York next month.

The items, along with a bowl and plate, were among the ascetic Indian independence leader's most important possessions.

Antiquorum Auctioneers in New York estimates the March 5 sale will fetch at least $20,000 to $30,000.

The simple leather flip-flops were given to a British military officer in 1931, apparently after he took Gandhi's photograph, Antiquorum said.

The round glasses, one of the most familiar details in Gandhi's image, were given to an army colonel.

The officer had asked Gandhi for inspiration and "Gandhi handed over his glasses, saying they were the 'eyes' that had given him vision to free India," the catalogue from Antiquorum says.

Gandhi's family condemns auction of his glasses, watch


Herald News ServicesFebruary 16, 2009

The family of Mahatma Gandhi has denounced a planned auction of his belongings as immoral and called for them to be returned to India as national treasures.

Gandhi's sandals, pocket watch and glasses, which the father of the Indian independence movement said gave him "the vision to free India," will be sold at a New York auction house next month.

On Sunday his great-grandson, Tushar Gandhi, joined Indian MPs in demanding their return. Gandhi, 49, who runs the Mahatma Gandhi Foundation in Mumbai, said he has had offers from around the world to donate one month's salary --including one from a poor rickshaw driver who had offered to sell his vehicle--to raise money for the cause. He has questioned the manner in which Peter Ruhe, a German collector, obtained the items.

The watch, he claimed, was a gift from Gandhi to his grandniece, who served as his personal assistant and in whose arms he died after being shot in 1948. He said Ruhe persuaded her to sign an agreement with him and now that she had died he was selling them.

"It is immoral and must be stopped," said Gandhi. "It would be a grave insult to the nation if these items were just sold. They are priceless to India."

The reserve price for the lot is $53,000.

India bids to halt Gandhi auction


Canwest News ServiceFebruary 28, 2009

The Indian government has stepped in to try to stop an auction of rare personal possessions of Mahatma Gandhi in the U. S.

The sale, which includes Gandhi's pocket watch and the eyeglasses he said gave him the vision to see an independent India, has provoked an outcry.

The items were apparently given to a New York auction house by the adopted daughter of Gandhi's grandniece Abha Gandhi, in whose arms he died after being shot in 1948.

Gandhi's great-grandson Tushar Gandhi said he was "overjoyed" by the government's move.

"This is our national heritage. We have to get back every single piece for our future generations," he said.

Controversial Gandhi auction going ahead


Herald News ServicesMarch 2, 2009 3:01 AM

An auction of Mahatma Gandhi's iconic round glasses, branded an "insult" by the independence leader's family, will go ahead, the New York-based auctioneers said Sunday.

"The auction will happen on March 5," Antiquorum Auctioneers spokeswoman Michelle Halpern said. "There has been no change."

The auctioneer, Julien Schaerer, said that despite an outcry in India over the sale of the glasses, a watch, a pair of sandals and a plate and bowl belonging to Gandhi, no one had contacted him.

"We haven't had any direct interest from the Indian government or from any Indian representative," he said.

"It's in their hands. If some of those wealthy people decide to buy it and give it as a gift to the country, it can be done."

Antiquorum has refused to identify the person it says is the single, private owner of the rare pieces, currently on display in a glass case along with a white orchid.

Indian tycoon pays $1.8M to bring Gandhi items home


Herald News ServicesMarch 6, 2009 2:06 AM

An Indian tycoon bought Mahatma Gandhi's iconic round glasses and other belongings Thursday for $1.8 million at an auction that proceeded despite the current owner's call to cancel the sale.

Tony Bedi, bidding on behalf of flamboyant billionaire Vijay Mallya, said the purchase meant the revered independence leader's glasses, sandals, pocket watch, plate and bowl would now return to India.

"Basically he was bidding for the country," the white-turbaned Bedi said after the dramatic auction at Antiquorum Auctioneers in New York.

India had bitterly opposed the auction from the start, insisting that Gandhi's belongings were part of the country's national heritage.

Indian businessmen packed the auction room, joining frenzied bidding to ensure the memorabilia did not go to another country. Cheers and clapping broke out when the hammer came down.

But Mallya's gesture raised legal questions and it was unclear when the items could be sent to India.

In India, Gandhi’s Halo Glows Less Brightly for Hindu Right and Lower Castes

Excerpt:

The memorial, the Gandhi Smriti, is perhaps the best place in India to contemplate the legacy of one of history’s momentous figures.

Seventy years after his assassination, Gandhi’s global influence is still enormous and his reputation as a force for good remains firmly intact.

Like few others in history, he harnessed the moral firepower of nonviolent resistance, helping wrest India away from the British Empire. His example of what could be achieved with peaceful protest has inspired countless others, across different cultures and different times, from Martin Luther King Jr. to the so-called tank man in Tiananmen Square.

Well into the 21st century, Gandhi’s halo is still bright in most of the world. Barack Obama picked Gandhi as his dream dinner guest.

But in contemporary India, Gandhi is no longer quite so awe-inspiring, or even relevant.

As time goes on, he seems to be falling out of sync with the prevailing trends in Indian politics, although politicians still regularly exploit nostalgia for him.

“I am afraid Gandhi has become marginal,” said Pratap B. Mehta, a political scientist who is the vice chancellor of Ashoka University and former president of the Center for Policy Research in New Delhi. “In modern India, the two dominant forces hate him.”

Among Hindu nationalists, part of the demographic base that powers India’s governing Bharatiya Janata Party, Gandhi is seen as weak, Mr. Mehta said.

Hindu supremacists are still angry at him for expressing so much sympathy for the country’s Muslim minority and for allowing Pakistan to split off from India.

Some Hindu nationalists have even built statues of Gandhi’s killer, Nathuram Godse, who was once a member of a Hindu nationalist group that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and many of his political allies also have belonged to. Mr. Godse is India’s real hero, some nationalists say.

Hindu Mahasabha leader shoots at Mahatma Gandhi’s effigy to mark his death anniversary Anuja Jaiswal | TNN | Updated: Jan 30, 2019, 20:00 IST 8 AGRA:

In an extremely provocative act, Hindu Mahasabha national secretary, Puja Shakun Pandey on Wednesday shot at an effigy of Mahatma Gandhi with a toy gun to mark his death anniversary and celebrated the day as ‘Shaurya Divas’ in Aligarh. Aligarh police has registered a case against Puja Shakun Pandey, Ashok Pandey and 10-12 unidentified people under sections 147 (rioting), 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 149 (unlawful assembly), 295 A (Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings or any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) and 153A (promoting enmity between different groups) of IPC. Aligarh SSP Akash Kulhari said that the matter is being investigated. However, no one was arrested till the filing of this report. In a bid to ”celebrate” Gandhi's assassination, the Hindu Mahasabha activists on Wednesday afternoon garlanded the photograph of NATHURAM GODSE and distributed sweets among the supporters after shooting at an effigy of Mahatma Gandhi. In a one-minute thirty seven second video, it can be seen that Pandey presses the trigger and after that a dark-red coloured liquid starts flowing from the effigy. Mahasabha activists later burnt the effigy amidst slogans of “Mahatma Nathuram Godse Zindabad”. Pandey said that she has started a new tradition today and recreated the entire incident of January 30, the day Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated. She said, “this is exactly what they do every year on Dussehra by burning Ravana”. She said that Gandhi was responsible for India’s partition that led to the birth of Pakistan and Godse killed and his act is admirable.

In Gujarat school shocker, a question on Mahatma Gandhi’s ‘suicide’
A question in a school exam on how Mahatma Gandhi committed suicide has shocked the Gujarat education authorities, prompting them to initiate an inquiry into it.
INDIA Updated: Oct 13, 2019 21:54 IST

A question in a school exam on how Mahatma Gandhi committed suicide has shocked the Gujarat education authorities, prompting them to initiate an inquiry into it.

Another question about boot-legging in dry Gujarat has also irked the education officials.

“Gandhijiye aapghaat karwa maate shu karyu?” (how did Gandhiji commit suicide) was the question asked in Gujarati to Class 9 students during an internal assessment examination of schools run under the banner of ‘Sufalam Shala Vikas Sankul’, an official said.

The Sufalam Shala Vikas Sankul is an organisation of some self-financed schools and educational institutions getting government grants in Gandhinagar.

Besides, another question in an exam paper of Class 12 students was about “writing a letter to district police chief complaining about the rise in sale of liquor in your area and nuisance created by bootleggers”.

“A cluster of self-financed schools and those getting grants included these two questions for internal assessment exams held on Saturday. These questions are highly objectionable, and we have initiated an inquiry. Action will be taken after the report comes in,” Gandhinagar’s district education officer Bharat Vadher told PTI.

The question papers were set by the management of these schools, run under the banner of Sufalam Shala Vikas Sankul, and the state education department had nothing to do with it, he added.
