NAMASTÉ - A Journey Across India Following The Footprints Of Mahatma Gandhi (English)

The journey follows the course of Gandhi's life: Porbandar, Rajkot, Ahmedabad, Wardha, Bombay and Delhi are the stations where the present life is shown alternately with those days when Gandhi lived and worked there. The 400 photographs of today's India were taken by Eduard Friedl, a professional photographer and former director of the photo studio of the Technical University of Berlin. The historic images of Mahatma Gandhi and India's freedom movement derive from the photo archive of Gandhi's foremost biographer Vithalbhai K. Jhaveri. This collection is the best of its kind in terms of quality and quantity. For the first time slides have been prepared from selected 400 photographs of this unique collection. The images are supported by sounds of today's India as well as original sound-documents of historic events, such as speeches of India's first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi.
The show has a length of 98 min 08 sec.
