Old, evocative photographs of a play titled ‘Mahatma’ performed in Kozhikode, Kerala in the early 60’s . The play was written by K.P.Kesava Menon, a renowned freedom fighter, lawyer and the founder of the newspaper ‘Mathrubhumi’ in Kerala and my great grandfather.  The actor playing Gandhiji was M. P. Bhatathirippad or Premji, a social reformer, cultural leader and award winning actor.
