The bulky amount of respect derived even by the dead-soul of India’s freedom fighters is worth saluting. Days back news was that the two-letters written by Mahatma Gandhi were available for auction at Christie’s auction house. The displayed letters might seem like two ordinary sheets of paper to other nationals but its value is well-identified by Indians.
The level of impatience or let me correct myself, the loyalty of the Indians for their “Bapu” doesn’t let those letters stay there for a long. As a result of this, the storyline today is that the Indian government has bought those letters from British auction house Christie’s through ICCR and presented it to the local NGO the Navjivan Trust.
To enhance your knowledge further, these letters were written by Mahatma Gandhi, 19 days prior to his assassination on 11 January 1948 . The bottomline says it all.
All eyeballs here: The letters were are bought for $ 37,500 (Rs1500,000).
