Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi, walking alongside Madan Mohan Malaviya, the photograph was auctioned for USD 41806 in the United States by Boston based RR Auction firm. The photo dates to a period in which Gandhi opted to write with his left hand due to the pain in his right thumb that lasted from August 8 to December 19, 1931. This rare photograph of “M K Gandhi”, signed in fountain pen was taken after the second session of India’s Round Table Conference in London in September 1931. Gandhi attended this second session of the round table conference as a delegate. It was a three-part conference series held in London from 1930 to 1932 to discuss the ongoing constitutional reforms in India. Madan Mohan Malaviya played a major role in the Mahatma Gandhi-led Non- Cooperation Movement and joined him in the conference as a representative advocating for a free India.
