This is a lazy blog entry i am trying to catch up from being sick - basically we went to where Ghandi got shot - went to check out his flip flops....

Here is the proper description

Gandhi Smriti Museum is the house where Mahatma Gandhi spent his last 144 days of his life before he was assassinated on the inauspicious day of 30 January 1948. Located on 5, Tees January Marg, the Government of India later converted it into a national memorial and dedicated it to Gandhiji. The building belonged to one the popular business houses of the country, Birla Group, from whom it was acquired by the Government of India in 1971.A quiet and calm place to visit, the memorial has been designed in such a way to highlight various aspects of the life of Mahatma, his ideas, principles and values. The Gandhi Smriti museum has kept up his personal belongings along with some rare photographs, relics, frescos and sayings of Gandhiji that are on display for the visitors. The room in which he lived as well as the prayer ground where evening congregations were held have been preserved in the same way as they were during Mahatma's lifetime. A concrete footprints trace his last steps from the room to the prayer ground and a martyr's column marks the place where this mass leader was assassinated.An imposing statue of Mahatma Gandhi can also been seen just at the entrance of the house with a girl and a boy holding a dove in their hands emerging from a globe. The sculptor of the statue is the popular artist Ram Sutar who has tried to convey Gandhiji's message of peace and concern for the deprived section of the society.
