It is a pity that inIndia the apostle of non-violence has to be caged to protect him from vandals. (In any case, you can not keep away the pigeons!) .
This reminds me of another episode. I was driving around the marina with my 8-year old grandson, who is based in the USA. On seeing the golden statue of Sivaji Ganesan opposite to that of Gandhi, he wanted to know who it was. I explained to him about the legendary actor. Prompt came his question, “why is that Gandhiji is in black and the actor is in gold?” I had no satisfactory answer.
