Vashi + Wadala + Goregaon

Aam Artist Gallery: Mahatma with a broom.

The Mahatma on his 150th birth anniversary is reduced to a man carrying a broom by his very own. It feels like a whitewashing of everything else he stood for, especially non violence. The only reason for this seems to be the only part of the 4 year old Modi Sarkar which seems to have some positive effect especially in the days what seems to be a slow motion economic crisis and job less growth.

A poster from Wadala station (last pic) offers a clue about where the imagery of Mahatma with a broom that we see around us has been taken from. It is from an RK Laxman cartoon.
