Mahatama Gandhi is not just an epitome of truth and justice, but also graces every currency note in India. And in a unique ode to the great leader, an Indian gemworks company has come out with a portrait of Gandhi, crafted using 2000 diamonds. The artwork created by 60,000 craftsmen over a period of 3 months at Vishakhapatnam, India will be put on show at an international exhibition to be organized in Mumbai. The portrait will later be put under the hammer, and 90 percent of the sale proceeds diverted to charity. What a befitting gift to a noble soul’s memory!
