I, as an unabashed Gandhi freak, wish I could.
Here is the way -
The 6.5 kg book ‘MAHATMA - Gandhi's Life in Colour’ compiled and published
by GandhiServe India makes Gandhi alive again for us .
“In an interdisciplinary project, Gandhi scholars, historians, photo experts and
graphic designers joined hands in order to turn black and white photographs into
colour images, thus making them true documents of history. After scanning, all
photographs have been cleaned digitally and colourized by skilled Indian hands
according to the historic settings. When the photographs were taken the actual
colourful scenes were reduced to black and white photographs due to technical
limitations of those days. Now, in a complex process Indian experts have added
the missing colours”
The description of this process from GandhiServe India may sound very official but
the book restores Mahatma as a Man, full of life and his journey in life full of
action, all aimed at one goal –connecting to people.
1281 photographs, cartoons, newspaper clippings, select letters and maps cover
his life in great detail bringing home the essence of the Man and how he carried
the world along with him in a great experiment of unity.
This coffee table book is a must for all those who believe in the ultimate power of
love and transformation. Peace and justice attained through violence is
temporary and forced. Unless each being feels the responsibility for the world's
violence and minimizes it in personal life the vicious cycle never ends .If we
cannot formulate our own way, we can at least learn from Gandhi’s "Experiments
with Truth" (Gandhi's autobiography).
This publication is a good point to begin, to touch the Mahatma as a person and
sow the seed of a connected, better and harmonious world.
