The entrance of Gandhi’s Ashram at Sabarmati

The beautiful view you see once you walk into the Ashram.

Daily activities and life of Gandhi Ashram; he enjoyed looking in the microscope, praying, giving speeches, caring for the sick, cleaning toilets, reading, etc.

A girl that I met at the Ashram. She was very welcoming and actually asked for me to take this picture of her – many of the kids wanted pictures.

Thought of the day at the Ashram; very interesting.

At the museum, there was a tribute to the many contributors of the non-violent resistance. It is great to see that the contributions are also being celebrated.

“Lord of humility, dwelling in the little pariah hut, help us to search for Thee throughout that fair land watered by Ganges, Brahmaputra and Jumna. Give us receptiveness, give us open- heartedness, give us Thy humility, give us the ability and willingness to identify ourselves with the masses of India. O God, who does help only when man feels utterly humble, grant that we may not be isolated from the people we would serve as servants and friends. Let us be embodiments of self-sacrifice, embodiments of godliness, humility personified, that we may know the land better and love it more.”

One of my favorite rooms in the museum. It was very beautiful black room, with an artistic touch!

This is Gandhi’s wife, Kasturba Mohandas Gandhi (11 April 1869–22 February 1944).

Kasturba (ba) led a group of satyagrahis women into the Transvaal. Their goal was to overload the prisons with satyaprahis.

The land gift movement, also known as the Bhoodan movement, was a voluntary land reform movement in India started by Acharya Vinoba Bhave in 1951. It started at Pochampally village now known as Bhoodhan Pochampally. The mission of the movement was to persuade wealthy landowners to voluntarily give a percentage of their land to lower castes

Another great and welcoming person at the Ashram. She also wanted me to take a picture with her and with her daughter.

Here they are again!

Walking outback at the Ashram.

This was used for morning and evening prayers for the inmates.

This was Gandhi’s room! – unfortunately it is locked and no one can go in.

I took a picture of his room through an open peep box on the door. Didn’t come out to bad! – here you will see the spinning wheel he would use (it is a replica). “Gandhi’s use of the spinning wheel was one of the most significant unifying elements of the nationalist movement in India. Spinning was seen as an economic and political activity that could bring together the diverse population of South Asia, and allow the formerly elite nationalist movement to connect to the broader Indian population.”

A beautiful view of the Sabarmati River. It is actually one of the sacred rivers in India, that flows right behind the Ashram. ” The Sabarmati River is one of the major West flowing river of Gujarat which originates from Dhebar lake in Aravalli Range of the Udaipur District of Rajasthan

I believe that is actually the bridge we cross over around 7:30am on the way to the Riverside School.

There was a row of trees right behind the Ashram; each tree symbolized either peace, joy, happiness, truth, etc.

More beautiful kids at the Ashram! They seemed so happy and full of life while we were there. They also wanted us to take pictures of them!

They liked to gather in groups, ask us questions (especially those regarding my box braided hair haha), and say hello or goodbye

Here are some quotes highlighted while at the museum

“Determination is worth nothing if it bends before temptation”
“Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.”
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
“An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
“You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.”

On Monday April 16, 2012 Lucia’s Tavola hosted a special fundraising dinner for New Hampshire Food Bank. The evening included a five-course menu prepared by Lucia’s executive chef and owner, Mark diCiccio, and head chef, Michelle Lugo. Not only did this successful event help raise money for the NH Food Bank, but it also shed light on all of the other great things the organization has done in our community. All of proceeds were donated to support the NH Food Bank.

To kick off this event, a week of fundraising at Southern New Hampshire University (April 9th – 13th) was also in order. I created a flash mob that had featured SNHU and Recipe for Success students to raise awareness and encourage students to donate from their meal cards that same week. As students paraded into the cafeteria, mobbers popped balloons which then had revealed facts about hunger in little notes! This was such a very fun and successful event!

Check out the video from the flash mob:

Here are some great pictures from the successful evening at Lucia’s Tavola.

Special THANK YOU to all of the supporters, Lucia’s Tavola and NH Food Bank!
