Killing him again and again

First, the re-edition of ‘Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi’ was messed up under the BJP Government, undoing the many decades of remarkable work by Prof.K.Swaminathan and many others. The Congress Government agreed to correct it, withdrew the wrong books, and, as usual, set-up a committee in 2005. I checked with the Publications Division at the Chennai Book fair today: the unrevised or restored edition is not published, yet. It is unbelievable that one of the most important historical commentaries [spanning 60+ years and 50000+ pages] of our times is out of print for so long.

We continue to invent different ways to kill Gandhi.
