Mahatama Gandhi's Salt March, from Sabarmati to Dandi, in 1930, was one of his more famous non-violent protests against British rule in India, which sparked off a campaign of civil disobedience, that eventally got India her Independence.
I was shooting a feature on this Salt March in Gujarat... The final product is now a permanent exhibit at the `Eternal Gandhi Multimedia Museum' In Delhi. (www.eternalgandhi.org)
A hundred extras, and one actor playing `Gandhi'...
The march was to protest against the British salt tax.
The salt tax made it illegal for workers to freely collect their own salt from the coasts of India, making them buy salt they couldn’t really afford, and allowing a complete British monopoly.
- Pros:The history...
- Cons:the heat!

Even though the sight of a virtually empty beach in some of these parts may be very inviting, its not about white sand... more travel advice
