Gun in the lap of Ahimsa

I find this photo very ironic. Gun in the lap of a man who lived and ultimately gave his life for peace and non-violence. picture courtesy: The Hindu

  1. Hi Visu,
    Where do you get these pictures??..
    It is for sure Ironic to see this picture. But the gun is still taking protection behind peace and non-violence.

    - Laks Sankaran.

  2. Looks like Gandhi has shut his eyes and cant take this anymore.

    This photo appeared in Hindu..

    Wonder what would Gandhi say to all this..

    Gandhi definitely wouldn't have liked the 'gun culture'..

  5. Who knows...if Gandhi was alive...maybe he'll fight all evil in today's world..with an AK-47.!!

    I am not sure about how effective AHIMSA would be today.!!

    That said..The photo is a sad reflection of today's world.!!

    Nice one Visu.!!

    No need to despair.. At any pt, there will always be good and evil..

    sometime, it might look that evil has taken over.. but Good will ALWAYS triumph..
