MAHATMA GANDHI

MAHATMA GANDHI

Immediately opposite Gate No. 1 of Parliament House is installed a 16-feet high bronze statue of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation.  He was a Saint among mortals, an apostle of peace, an educationist and social reformer and above all, a true humanist.  An abiding faith in truth, non-violence, selfsacrifice, tolerance and universal love was the distinguishing feature of his many-faceted personality.

Mahatma Gandhi's name is synonymous with India's freedom struggle.  For nearly four decades, he was at the vanguard of the national liberation movement.  He also served as President of the Indian National Congress.  The Non-Cooperation Movement, Dandi March and Salt Satyagraha and the Quit India Movement were historical landmarks in the struggle against foreign rule which he led with peerless fervour.  Gandhiji infused a new spirit into the people, awakened national consciousness and moved the masses into action.

The statue of the Mahatma in a meditating posture, sculpted by Ram Sutar, was unveiled by the then President of India, Dr. Shanker Dayal Sharma on 2 October 1993.

The statue was donated by the Ministry of Urban Development.
