The Birth of Mahatma Gandhi
9 - 12 days
"Cleanliness is Godliness"
Blood-stained and riddled with bullet holes, the robes Mahatma Gandhi wore when he died are the star attraction at the national museum dedicated to him in Delhi. Now, in the next room and 70 years after his death, visitors will be able to listen to the beating heart of the man known here as the “Father of the Nation”. This year the commemorations are particularly ambitious because 2019 will be the landmark 150th anniversary of Gandhi’s birth.
Your students will learn about the change-maker that was Mahatma Gandhi, Old Delhi, New Delhi, and of course, Agra which is home to the Taj Mahal. 2019 marks a very special year and grand opportunity to students to learn more about Mahatma Gandhi and the example he set for the human race.
