The Art of Letter Writing

I went to Mani Bhavan recently, and found the original letter that Gandhi wrote to Hitler. The language is simple, the message brief.

I couldn't come away without photographing it.

The Mahatma's birthday is just round the corner, so it's a good time to catch a glimpse of the man.

Click on the photo for a clearer image - you can easily read the text.

Herr Hitler's reply would have made it more interesting though. I have visited Mani Bhavan lots of times and find it a beautiful experience everytime.

Cheers,

I love that he wrote to roosevelt and hitler on the same terms. Also, thank you because you just gave me the hook i needed for this post I wanted to write :)
