NRI economist Meghnad Desai sets up Gandhi statue trust in UKPosted Date : 2014-07-29

Eminent economist Meghnad Desai has set up a charity trust to raise one million pounds required to create a statue of Mahatma Gandhi, Times of India reported. British Foreign Secretary William Hague and Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, during their recent visit to India, had announced that UK would install the statue at Parliament Square in London next year - the 11th statue to be erected in the square. The ministers had announced that the important monument would be funded by charitable donations and sponsors. The project has the full support of the British Government and a special advisory group, led by the UK's culture secretary, Sajid Javid has been set up to support progress. Desai said the Gandhi Statue Memorial Trust has been registered with the UK's Charity Commission and will go live by next week for people to contribute funds. "We want as many people to contribute whatever little they can from anywhere in the world. This is a people's statue," Desai said. The statue will stand next to Britain's war-time PM Winston Churchill and anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela. Desai said that the plans are to unveil the new statue on Martyrs' Day - January 30, 2015 - "hopefully by Indian PM Narendra Modi". UK says once installed, the statue will provide a focal point for commemoration next summer of the 100th anniversary of Gandhi's return to India from South Africa to start the struggle for self-rule, as well as the passing of 70 years since his death in 2018, and the 150th anniversary of his birth in 2019. Philip Jackson, a leading British figurative sculptor, renowned for statues of the Queen Mother and Bomber Command, has been approached to take on this prestigious project. ague said "Gandhi's view of communal peace and resistance to division, his desire to drive India forward, and his commitment to non-violence left a legacy that is as relevant today as it was during his life. He remains a towering inspiration and a source of strength. We will honour him with a statue alongside those of other great leaders in Parliament Square". Osborne added "As the father of the largest democracy in the world, it's time for Gandhi to take his place in front of the mother of Parliaments. He is a figure of inspiration, not just in Britain and India, but around the world. New Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi invoked his memory in his inaugural speech to Parliament. I hope this new memorial will be a lasting and fitting tribute to his memory in Britain, and a permanent monument to our friendship with India".
