Geez, it was only 139 years ago little Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was born in Porbander, India. And now every October 2 Indians - and the world - celebrate his October 2 birthday - known in India as Gandhi Jayanti. Washington DC even has it's own Gandhi statue near Dupont Circle.
See my site What Would Gandhi Do? Search YouTube for lots of Gandhi Video. Below is one of my favorite scenes from "the movie"!
