From the times when Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, better known as Mahatma Gandhi, was practising as an attorney to the time he met Charlie Chaplin, here is a look at the life of the Mahatma in a collection of unseen photographs captured at different times of his life; some happy moments, others not so. To commemorate ‘Gandhi Jayanthi’ we bring to you few unseen pictures of the Mahatma, our beloved ‘Bapu’.
