Andrew Evans is still in South Africa and has been for a while. Today’s blog is, once again, focused on people, not places. The story is about meeting Gandhi’s grandchildren and great- grandchildren. The piece is short and too the point, but still gives the reader a lot of information about Gandhi’s beliefs and the family he left behind.
His granddaughter, Ela, still lives in the house that she helped build with him. The piece begins with a line about the neighbors obnoxious music, but in true Gandhi fashion Ela is unconcerned and just wants them to ‘live their life’. To me this piece really brought someone idyllic and grand, down to earth in a manner that everyone could relate to.
