Gandhi -- T-Shirts

He is the most reknowned Indian face globally. Close on the heels of the Telecom Italia's Gandhi ad, its now the turn of T-shirts with quotes by Mahatma Gandhi.

Tushar Gandhi, grandson of Bapu, runs a website that among others things , sells T-shirts with Mahatama's quote. The T-shirts are available in various colors and sizes.Here is a sample of the list of quotes available :

1) Be the change you want to see in the world.
2) An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.
3) 8 Deadly sins.
4) I want world sympathy in this battle of right against might.
5) My life is my message. (With Photograph)
6) An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.
7) Anger is the enemy of non violence and pride is a monster that swallows it up.

For all those trivia lovers, New Indian Express reports that the latest convert to Gandhi T-Shirts is Jennifer Aniston ("Friends").

  • This could cause another uprising amongst the 'nationalistic fundamentalists'. Father of the nation on apparel??!?? Hope it doesn't. Good initiative I think. Keeps alive the thoughts and methods of a man long lost on today's India.
    Cheers!

  • Promoting something relating to a person whose life itself was a message, is really worthwhile. Good on you.
