This looks interesting, though it's political pilgrimage.

I think Gandhi would not approve - he didnt like being called Mahatma either!

Every year we have a Gandhi Salt march in Durban. It starts from the house where he lived in Phoenix to the Durban Beachfront - about 25kms. There are even Gandhi look-a-likes who walk the way. I doubt he would've minded - especially as his grand-daughter takes part and is one of the organisers. ( The same march is re-enacted all over the world.)
