Celebrating Gandhi’s 150th Birthday in India

I traveled to India earlier this month and got to experience Gandhi’s 150th birthday celebration while I was there. The holiday is officially known as Gandhi Jayanti and marked by prayer services and tributes across the country. It felt similar to MLK day in the US where school, work, and government are closed. One big difference is that it’s a dry holiday, which means for scoundrels like you and me, no booze (an awful surprise as you can see in the video below). This was my second visit to India and it was a very special and life-changing experience. I was lucky to be off of work for the holiday and spent the day exploring Gandhi Park and the Commercial district in Bangalore looking for shorts. Apparently, grown men in India don’t wear shorts.
