New Delhi, India

The Gyarha Murti in New Delhi is a monument illustrating the iconic Dandi March of 1931. It shows sculptures of Mahatma Gandi, an Indian independence leader, together with ten Indian people who participated in the Civil Disobedience protest against the British rule in India on March 12, 1930.
The sculpture was created by veteran artist and sculptor Devi Prasad Roy Chowdhury. It symbolizes not only the resentment of the Indian people during that time, but the success of those who fought against the British monopoly as well.
