A Dancing Gandhi impersonator

A Dancing Gandhi impersonator – a quick search on the internet would confirm this. One blog claims the person is an Australian actor in Sydney at a party in the good old days. The anatomy of the individual confirms this.

I am sure the Mahatma would have been amused by the picture, as he rather unsuccessfully did take dancing lessons in London when 19.

He wrote “I must have taken about six lessons in three weeks. But it was beyond me to achieve anything like a rhythmic motion. I could not follow the piano and hence found it impossible to keep time.”

  1. Thanks for this information; this photograph has been doing the rounds for some time. Gandhi was a great man who had the ability to write with total honesty... thanks again for clarifying the origin of this photograph.
