Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

M.K. Gandhi (

Martyrdom, 30 January 1948: The epic life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was ended. This 17 min 30 sec film tells the story of the tragic but glorious day of Gandhi’s martyrdom in the cause of unity and love – a day that turned the nations of the world into one mourning family.

He had said, “If I am to die by the bullet of a mad man, I must do so smiling.” He bowed to his assassin and died with the name of God on his lips. He was the Victorious One in death as in life.
