Jamnagar News - Mahatma Gandhi Broken Statue at Gandhi Kutir

The broken statue of Mahatma Gandhi was found lying near Gandhi Kutir in Jamnagar. Passersby put the broken pieces together and kept them outside the kutir.

The statue fell on its own as it was in a dilapidated condition.

As per local sources, the statue was made by the locals of Chandi bazaar about 60 years ago and the responsibility of its maintenance was with Jamnagar Municipal Corporation.

Gandhiji looks wounded as he seems to have collapsed on the floor with hands on his side amid the rubble of his broken legs. But if you observe the sculpture closely, the broken knee joint makes one wonder about the material used to make the statue.

Yet, it is difficult to accept such an assumption, because this particular statue did not fall for 60 years, survived the earthquake of 2001 and then suddenly fell and until date there is no valid reason, so that we can make deductions or assumptions of the sudden fall of Gandhi.
