Tribute to gandhi. Jamnagar

Mahatma Gandin have been murdered a 30 th of January. Just have a think to him, even if we don't agree with all what he have done or thought; he will remain as a great man.
In Gujarat, people have a real dovotion for him, and it's not rare to find a Gandhi representation in the streets.

Crazy sun. Bhuj

Carving marble for a new temple ( the first one have been destroyed by the earthquake in 2001). Not easy with a crazy sun which makes the white marble terrific for the eyes. Not easy for photos too.
The builder is Swaminarayam, one of the most influent and rich sect in this country.
