Vidhan Soudha... the towering edifice of the Karnatka State Government. With the motto - 'Government work is God's work' emblazoned boldly across the main entrance.In a curious mix of the cliche and not so cliche, there are 3 prominent statues that are placed in front of the Vidhan Soudha... Jawaharlal Nehru - India's first PM, B.R. Ambedkar - Father of the constitution and last and very suprisingly - Subhash Chandra Bose. The surprising bit is not the presence of Bose's statue... the surprising bit for me is the absence of a statue of Mahatma Gandhi's. After all he is the so called father of the nation etc. etc. I believe it was fortunate we were ruled by the British and not Hitler, else Gandhiji and co. would have been gassed to death.
In spite of my belief it is a bit of a surprise that Gandhiji's statue is missing. In this day and age, Ambedkar's and Gandhi's statue are the bare essentials considering India's politics. Why is Mahatma Gandhi not present at the Vidhan Soudha?
