Authentic Mahatma Gandhi Personal Autograph On Antique Envelope

This originalautographed envelope of Mahatma Gandhi is being soldby the previous owner of Gandhi's pocket watch, and glasses which recently sold at a New York sale House for 1.8 Million U.S. Dollars.Have a look at The New York Times Article here:
FROM THENEW YORK TIMESDeal Clears Path to India for Gandhi ItemsByA. G. SULZBERGERBrendan McDermid/ReutersJames Otis has dropped his objections to the sale of Gandhi’s belongings.

The man who started a political uproar in India byputting former belongings of Mohandas K. Gandhi up for salein New York — then unsuccessfullytrying to shut down the $2 million sale— has removed a potential legal challenge that could have complicated the return of the items to the nation Mr. Gandhi founded.

James Otis, a wealthy peace activist based in Los Angeles, said this week that he dropped his threats of a lawsuit after the buyer, Vijay Mallya, a liquor and airline tycoon who is one of the wealthiest men in India, agreed to set up a nonprofit foundation dedicated to promoting causes championed by Gandhi, like nonviolent conflict resolution and assisting the poor.The deal — which is “not intended to be legally enforceable,” according to the contract — was crafted during a negotiating session with representatives for Mr. Mallya that started in the tycoon’s giant penthouse suite in Trump Plaza overlooking Central Park and concluded 12 hours later in the office of Mr. Otis’s lawyer.

The items in question were a pocket watch, a pair of sandals, spectacles and eating utensils. The winning offer was $1.8 million but the sale house, Antiquorum, also charged a $296,000 “buyer’s fee” that moved the total price above $2 million, said Michael D. Greenberg, a lawyer for Mr. Mallya.

By contract, the sale house, which had steadfastly refused the pleas of Mr. Otis and the Indian government to shut down the sale, received a 50 percent share of the proceeds, Mr. Otis said.

Robert Maron, Antiquorum’s chairman, could not be reached for comment.

Mr. Mallya said on the day of the sale that he had bought the modest possessions, intending to return them to India for public display. That goal is on hold while he fights an effort by the Indian government to impose an import duty tax when the items — already in transit — arrive in the country, Mr. Greenberg said.

Mr. Otis said he planned to travel to India on Wednesday to announce the creation of the Gandhi Foundation and, he added, to rehabilitate his reputation.

Uli Seit for The New York Times
The sale of items once owned by Mohandas K. Gandhi, including a pocket watch and spectacles, touched off outrage in India.

According to a copy of the agreement, Mr. Mallya will assist Mr. Otis in trying to raising $20 million over the next six months for the foundation, for the purpose of exhibiting the Gandhi items, promoting his ideas and assisting India’s poor. Mr. Otis had been seeking a $50 million guarantee.

“Obviously we said, ‘Look we’re not going to commit to anything, but we’ll commit to help raise funds,’” said Tony Bedi, who represented Mr. Mallya at the sale and subsequent negotiations. “How realistic it is, we’ll see when we go out to raise money.”

Mr. Otis said he will donate “every red cent” of the $1 million he received in the sale to the new foundation. (He said he has already been making commitments to pass through those funds to other organizations, though the foundation board selected by Mr. Otis and Mr. Mallya have yet to meet.)

He said he has fasted on a diet of lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper for the past 19 days, a diet known as the master cleanse. He looked substantially slimmer, Mr. Bedi said.

Mr. Otis has other plans after touring India. He said he intends to get himself arrested in Tibet to protest China’s treatment of Tibetans. His ultimate goal, he said, is to bring about a meeting with Chinese leaders, himself and the Dalai Lama.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi2 October 1869– 30 January 1948 was the preeminent leader ofIndian nationalisminBritish-ruled India. Employingnon-violentcivil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. "high-souled," "venerable"—applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa,—is now used worldwide. He is also calledBapu(Gujarati: endearment for "father,""papa.") in India.

Born and raised in a Hindu,merchant caste, family in coastalGujarat,western India, and trained in law at theInner Temple, London, Gandhi first employed non-violent civil disobedience as an expatriate lawyer in South Africa, in the resident Indian community's struggle for civil rights. After his return to India in 1915, he set about organising peasants, farmers, and urban labourers to protest against excessive land-tax and discrimination. Assuming leadership of theIndian National Congressin 1921, Gandhi led nationwide campaigns for easing poverty, expanding women's rights, building religious and ethnic amity, endinguntouchability, but above all for achievingSwarajor self-rule.
