after he returned after his long sojourn in South Africa,
Gandhi set out on a train journey to re-discover India. To
feel one with the masses and identify with their needs, he
traveled third class. He carried a bare minimum of luggage.
He made it a point to dress also like his less fortunate fellow
passengers. He found that through train conditions for the
underprivileged were disgraceful, the habits of disorderliness
and lack of civic sense amongst the passengers themselves
needed to be reformed. He realized that political emancipation
and social reform had to go together. In this installation,
the electronic e-train allows people to trace Gandhi’s
journey and the significance of the places he visited.
