For a look in black and white at the days of Indian partition, and the efforts of Mohandas K. Gandhi and others who brought independence to India and Pakistan, the Times of London has gathered archival coverage of events more than 50 years ago. You can find links here and here.
You can find a collection of four photos of the Salt March that Gandhi led in 1930 here. (Realize, of course, that the Times coverage in 1930 came from the point of view of an empire losing its possession. One headline about Gandhi's march: "Extremist in illegal salt march collection.")
The attacks last month in Mumbai brought back to mind a trip I'd made three years ago to join Gandhi's great grandson and hundreds of others in a re-enactment of the march. You can find a story about that here.
And here you can find an essay I wrote about the Mumbai attacks and Gandhi's message, which was published yesterday in the Boston Globe.
