Mahatma Gandhi’s blood fails to sell at auction
2013 05 24

Famous pacifist Mahatma Gandhi didn’t like to spill any when he was alive so it is quite ironic a sample of his blood was put up for sale in a recent auction.

In the end the activist’s body fluid was not sold as no-one was able to meet the £10,000 ($15,155) reserve price.

Gandhi’s blood had been available to buy after being placed on two glass microscope slides, said to be provided by the leader when he was recovering from an operation for appendicitis in 1924.

When describing the item, British auction house Mullock’s spokesman Richard Westwood-Brookes said: ‘To Gandhi devotees, it has the same status as a sacred relic to a Christian.

‘It is an artefact which is revered by disciples of Gandhi, particularly in India and therefore that is the sort of person who would go for it.’

It wasn’t all disappointing news as there were over 50 items from Gandhi that sold at the auction, including a pair of his famous sandals.

The footwear, which he reportedly donned in the 1920s, went for £19,000, almost double their asking price.
