I made no argument. I asked questions, and you answered them. That’s why I posted in this platform. I also appreciate your sharing your opinion on the value of me asking these questions.

I guess the bottom line is: I can dig it. It’s actually quite a liberal idea to pay your respects in whatever way works for you, isn’t it?

Doesn’t it? Gandhi was known, and later criticised, for staining the freedom movement with hints of saffron. It is not unusual, therefore, if someone chooses to interpret Gandhi as a non-aloholic, vegetarian and selectively promote his values. After-all he was the father of the nation, we ought cling to at least some ideas of his, however distorted. It was Gandhi Jayanti and people simbly paid their reverence in whatever weird ways they could.
