The Telegraph tells us:
It was rather cool on the one hand, and especially great to see Gandhi still recognised. On the other hand I'm not sure what I think about Gandhi being elevated to a design icon alongside Che, Mona Lisa and Marilyn Monroe. What do you think?
As well as being celebrated in India as a national holiday known as "Gandhi Jayanti" – October 2 is marked around the world as International day of Non Violence.
Born on October 2 1869 in Porbandar, Gujarat, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is celebrated for his ideas on non violent passive resistance.
He is known around the world as the "Mahatma" from the Sanskrit word meaning "Great Soul".
In a tribute to mark the anniversary, Barack Obama praised Gandhi for his influence on modern America through his influence on figures including Martin Luther King the civil rights leader.
