The turning point of Gandhiji’s life. Just because he was a non-white: PM Modi undertakes a train journey to Pietermaritzburg station in memory of the 1893 incident in which Mahatma Gandhi was thrown out of a train compartment on account of his skin colour.

PM  visits on Saturday July 9, 2016 Pietermaritzburg railway station, where Mahatma Gandhi was offloaded from the train on Saturday






It is the 101th year Mahatma’s return to India, a journey re-tracing by PM Narendra Modi though his visit to South Africa.. Gandhi arrived at Apollo Bundar on January 9, 1915, along with his wife Kasturba. The re-enactment, exactly a century later, traced his journey from the Gateway of India to the horse carriage ride they took to the Mumbai University, where he spoke for the first time after spending close to 22 years in South Africa.
