#GandhiStatue: Exploring Mahatma Gandhi's relationship with Great Britain

A permanent memorial to Indian independence icon Mahatma Gandhi was unveiled in London's Parliament Square this weekend.

Gandhi’s statue will join that of his famous adversary in his campaign for independence,  Winston Churchill, as well as others, among them Nelson Mandela and Abraham Lincoln.

Gandhi is the only person never to have occupied public office to be honoured with a statue in the famous public square, and the first Indian.

The memorial’s inauguration coincides with a season of commemorations that mark the 100th anniversary of Gandhi’s return to India from South Africa to begin the struggle for self-rule.

Yet the statue in London is also testament to Gandhi’s profound relationship with Britain: of both the considerable influence and impact Gandhi had in Britain itself, but also the influence Britain had on Gandhi.
