Gandhi and his possessions when he died


“You may have occasion to possess or use material things, but the secret of life lies in never missing them.” ~Gandhi

Mohandas K. Gandhi was a man a few possessions.At the time of his death he had less than 10 items.Always giving away or auctioning off gifts he received.

two interesting notes:

The Zenith pocket watch, and it has been said and it's been written that Gandhi had a preoccupation with time. He was never without his watch.

His glasses: many people identify Gandhi with those, small, round spectacles that he wore. Once Gandhi took his glasses off and said, these were the eyes that gave me the vision to free India.
