We are all “one”

“Let us forget: “I am a Hindu, you are a Muslim” or ” I am a Gujarati, you are a Madrasi”. Lets us sink the “I” and the “mine” in a common Indian nationality” … “We are all “one””.

How extensively the message of this poster hanged at the wall of Madi Bhawan, the colonial style house that Gandhi inhabited in Bombay, today transformed in a museum, with library, personal objects, dioramas – around fifty miniatures theatricalising the key moments of his existence – , seem right at a time when society, every time with more intensity and belief, pushes us to define ourselves through our membership to a particular country, a gender, a religion, making us forget our belonging to the only race known and identifiable on earth, the human race and its universal common objective … happiness.
