Gandhian Activist's Role Remembered

In this fiftieth anniversary year of India's independence from Britain, Indians are celebrating anew the work of Gandhian activists such as Usah Metha. Metha, a 77 year-old women, served as one of the Indian underground's first disc jockeys in 1928. She also worked with Gandhi on his 1942 campaign to force the British to leave India. Metha has continued to promote Gandhi's ideals of nonviolence for nearly 40 years.
