Sketches and drawings of Mahatma Gandhi

These are sketches or pencil drawings of Mahatma Gandhi's photos and portraits. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (MK Gandhi) was the prominent leader during India's Independence Struggle from British Rule. He believed in non-violence and used methods based on this idealogy to fight British Imperialism.

In this drawing, MG has an inquiring or even puzzled or sceptical expression on his face. He is wearing some cloth on his right shoulder.

Here Gandhi seems engrossed in writing something. He is sitting on a mattress. He is bare-chested and wearing a dhoti.

In this one Mahatma Gandhi has his eyes closed. He has covered himself with a shawl.

  1. Thank you for your sketches. They are creative and beautiful. I'm giving a lecture where I'll mention Gandhi briefly, as a writer, and I'd like to use your sketch in a PowerPoint presentation. I hope you are agreeable to this. All the very best, Teresa.

  2. Ofcourse you are welcome Teresa. Thank you for writing a note and telling me you are using it.

  3. Well, congratulations Mr. Sahu for "thinking" something that is already mentioned in the post!! I need not have mentioned it in any case as this is my work, not anyone else's.
