Houston to get Mahatma Gandhi statue

HOUSTON (TIP): A life-size bronze statue of Mahatma Gandhi would be installed at Irving in Texas State, fulfilling a long-cherished dream of Indian-Americans living in the city. A 7-foot tall and 30-inch wide bronze statue of Gandhi, which was cast in Andhra Pradesh, would be installed on a 6- foot tall pedestal. It would have a granite wall as a backdrop inscribed with Gandhi’s memorable words, as well as quotations from Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein, President Barack Obama and others. Irving has a sizeable population of Indians, and a majority is from Andhra.
