 Listen to Mahatma Gandhi's 'heartbeats' at the National Gandhi Museum 

In 2019 different programmes will be showcased at the National Gandhi Museum in New Delhi to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of the Gandhi, born in 1869. Visitors will get a chance to listen to the recreated heart beats of Mahatma Gandhi after collecting his ECG (electrocardiography) readings.


During his youth, Gandhi gave up on his dream to become a doctor as his father and elder brother were opposed to dissection of dead bodies. However, Gandhi managed to get training in basic nursing and he also worked as compounder at the Saint Aidan’s Mission Hospital run by Dr Lancelot Parker Booth in South Africa.
