Yes! I Killed Mohandas Gandhi and I am Glad I Did It!
That is what Gopal Godse says as he prepares for his final vindication, the election of India's first ultra-Hindu nationalist government.
Gopal Godse spent 18 years in prison for his role in the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. His brother and one other conspirator were hanged by the neck until dead.
But it was all worth it, says Gopal Godse.
In this photo, as his wife, Sindhu, looks on, Gopal Godse proudly recounts his role in plotting the assassination of Mohandas K. Gandhi in 1948.
UPDATE: November 2005: Sadly, Gopal Godse has died. He is survived by his wife and his two daughters. In the last years of his life, he supported himself by selling books and goving interviews about how he killed Gandhi.
