Icons of Gandhi

Since Gandhi's everyday life was a message itself, some of his ordinary artifacts such as his reading glasses or his prayer beads became iconic, while some others even symbolic. Such as the otherwise ubiquitous spinning wheel that used to dot India's villages. Indeed, Gandhi's popularity may be judged by the fact that artifacts, phrases, or songs associated with him ended up evolving as a Gandhian language, basically as emblematic of a "Gandhian way of life."
