Remembering Mahatma

[Above: Mahatma Gandhi sharing a light moment with his granddaughters. source: Enc. Britannica]

[Gandhi's] words struck me so forcibly that there and then I committed myself to attempt to make a film about Mahatma Gandhi - a commitment that changed the subsequent twenty years of my life.
-- Richard Attenborough, in his introduction to the book - The Words of Gandhi
Today, Jan 30, 2009 is the 61st anniversary of Bapu's demise.

Update: Added Mahatma's speech on spirituality recorded by BBC at Kingsley Hall, London in Oct 1931 (~5:20 min.).
