Gandhi ji loved walking. According to him walking "is justly called the prince of exercises". He began enjoying long walks in high school, preferring lengthy rambles to organized sports. As a law student in London, he saved money by walking as many as eight to ten miles a day. It was primarily those long walks, he said, that "kept me practically free from illness throughout my stay in England and gave me a fairly strong body". All those years of walking served him well during the Salt March of 1930 when, at the age of 60, he walked 241 miles from his ashram to the sea at Dandi. http://gandhiworld.in/english/littleknownfacts.php#sthash.w1O30BRG.dpuf Image courtesy: Procured via Google Images

Bapu with Tagore. These two great men shared a lot of ideological conflicts. Tagore highly criticized Mahatma's Swadeshi movement saying that this kind of freedom struggles are high on idealism but not accessible to the poor masses of India. Swadeshi clothes were highly expensive and the majority could not afford it. In fact Tagore even wrote a novel on these two conflicting ideologies - Home and the World (Ghore Baire). Satyajit Ray later made a film on the same book. Image courtesy: Procured via Google Images
