I headed over to Tavistock Square in London where the centre piece of the gardens is a statue of Gandhi. The bronze sculpture is the work of Fredda Brilliant. It was unveiled in 1968 by, the then Prime Minister, Harold Wilson.
It is interesting that this statue is here in what was the capital of the British Empire given that Gandhi’s major aim was to gain independence for his country from that very empire. However, he did study law at the nearby University of London and this city does commemorate great men and women in its public art.
