Hey, are you Ben Kingsley’s kids?

October 4, 2009

Blog Guy, can you please help settle an argument with my girlfriend? Did Gandhi have any children?

This is what you argue about with your girlfriend? What about fidelity and commitment and toilet seats and stuff?

Nope, just the Gandhi thing.

Jeez. Anyway, Gandhi did indeed father a number of children, as you can see in this shot taken this week in Bhopal, India.

Wow, talk about your dominant gene pool. What a strong resemblance!

Yes indeed, especially considering these are all girls.
