A Tribute to Mahatma Gandhi
By Vibhor Sogani,

“Be the Change you wish to see in the World’’.
  - M.K. Gandhi.

We all want to see big changes in the world. Every great journey, though, has to begin with a single step. That step, we believe, needs to come from within us - the Gandhi in us. Every individual carries a bit of Mahatma in him, waiting to be discovered. ‘Mahatma in me’ is our humble attempt towards that realisation. Subtle images of Mahatma Gandhi and some impressions of his thoughts, expressed here in reflective steel, make us pause to reflect for a moment on the Mahatma within all of us…
  ‘Mahatma in Me’ - A tribute to Gandhi ji by Vibhor Sogani.

“All will see images of the Mahatma. Most will find reflections of the world. Many will see their own selves reflected. Some will look to find their souls. A few will act to realise the Mahatama within.”
