Ela Gandhi

On Tuesday we had the privilege of meeting The Honourable Ela Gandhi. We were visiting the historic Phoenix Settlement which was home to her grandfather, Mahatma Gandhi, during his stay in Durban, South Africa from 1893-1914. The Honourable Ela Gandhi told us stories of her grandfather’s work along with her own story and work with the South African Parliament. Ela was born in Phoenix Settlement and it continues to serve the community with a Gandhi museum. The aspect that resonated most with me was her humility and kindness. We felt welcomed and are extremely grateful for her time.
