Gr 5 Aspiring Achievers were very excited to visit a specially curated photo exhibition of our beloved Mahatma Gandhi shot by his grand nephew Kanu Gandhi.This photo exhibition was displayed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya.
Gandhiji had put forth 3 conditions before he let Kanu click his photographs.He had told Kanu not to sell these photos. Also he was not going to pose for the photos or allow the flash to be used to click the photos.
The photo exhibition documents the important events in the last 10 years of Gandhiji’s life .It includes historic moments like meetings with all other leaders of that time, snapshots of his daily life, his journey by train while collecting money for the Harijan Fund, the different times he fasted for Satyagraha and finally his assassination.
The children were first quizzed as a follow up to the museum talk.They were then taken on a tour to see the photographs which culminated in an exciting photo treasure hunt. Later there was a creativity session to colour and decorate pictures of freedom fighters.
