National Salt Satyagraha Memorial

 

The National Salt Satyagraha Memorial (NSSM) is a project of the Ministry of Culture, Government of India, advised by a High-Level Dandi Memorial Committee, co-ordinated and implemented by IIT Bombay in association with an International Design Team. The project was announced in 2005 by the then Honorable Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh on the 75th anniversary of the 1930 Dandi March, one of the most significant movements in contemporary Indian political history.

In the memorial, I Have sculpted two life-size marchers, One is Shri Pandit Narayan Moreshwar Khare (Age 42), who was the only marcher of the group who has EKTARA (a traditional musical instrument) in his hand and was always next to Gandhi Ji. And another was Shri Gajanan Khare. These sculptures were first made in clay then fiberglass and as a final material in silicon bronze.
