DALLAS, TX: Members of Indian community in Dallas gathered to pay rich tribute to Gandhiji on January 30 at the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Plaza, Irving, TX, the largest Gandhi memorial in USA.

Rao Kalvala, Secretary, Mahatma Gandhi Memorial of North Texas (MGMNT) stated that this Mahatma Gandhi Memorial has become the landmark for the Dallas / Fort Worth Indian-American community.

Dr. Prasad Thotakura, Chairman, MGMNT, appreciated the community for their participation to pay homage to Mahatma Gandhi.

He emphasized that this is the day to recollect and remember the hard work of Gandhiji to free India from the colonial British rule and rededicate ourselves in serving our motherland, India.

Taiyab Kundawala, Co-chairman of the MGMNTstated that Gandhiji’s efforts, the peaceful methods used to attain India’s Independence and the support that he received from people across the country were unparalleled.

Mrs. Shabnam Modgil, Director of MGMNT Board, said Mahatma Gandhi was an inspiration to many world leaders to start civil rights movements in many continents and he belongs to the whole world, not only to India.
