Gandhi Museum Goes Hi-Tech

But you plebs can't touch the buttons! Gandhi's hands-on, high-tech message for a new generation:
"Gandhian values of nonviolence and truth are relevant for all times. But the challenge was to get this message across to the younger generation. So we used the medium of technology that they are so fascinated with," says Savita Singh, the director of the Eternal Gandhi museum and memorial.

The $2.8 million exhibition, which opened last year, is an expansion of an older, more solemn memorial, the sprawling colonial-style house where Gandhi spent the last 144 days of his life. It was in its grounds in 1948 that Gandhi, walking to a daily prayer meeting, was shot dead by a Hindu radical.
