Archivist’s Update: Mahatma Gandhi

Bed and table on both of which lie writing tools await arrival of Mahatma Gandhi in garden of Birla Mansion in New Delhi, India Jan. 13, 1948, to start fast for communal peace. The water bottle suggests that after one last meal he would subsist on water alone-sometimes salted and sometimes with lime juice added-until there is peace, even if he must die. (AP Photo/G.M.
