When India celebrated the centenary of great Indian rebellion of 1867 (in 1969), one of the few and first to be recognized was, as it had to be, the lawyer and leader of his people, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, 1869-1948 (aka "Mahatma" Ghandi).

Thus did India Post roll out this postage stamp to honour this amazing individual who preached affirmative peace.

For more on Ghandi, the lawyer, read his on-line biography on the Law's Hall of Fame.

The cancellation markings are Canadian. Access to the postage stamp is a courtesy of the Kenneth Plummer Stamp Collection, with thanks to his son Brian for the access thereto.
