Goofs

Whilst it is true that electricity was unavailable to most Indian villages during Mohandas K. Gandhi's lifetime, it can be expected that poles supporting, what seem to be power lines along the railroad right-of-way during Gandhi's tour of India, are instead supporting telegraph lines, some of which were in place as early as the 1850s.


Crazy Credits

The producers express their thanks in the closing credits to The National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of India for the use of its grounds and exteriors for filming locations.
