C O M HULTON-DEUTSCH COLLECTION/CORBIS They were the most unlikely of co-conspirators, pulled together by the unravelling of British rule in India: the Aga Khan, Muslim leader and suave statesman; Mahatma Gandhi, inspirational activist and guru. They were in London to attend the Round Table Conference on constitutional reforms in India. Nowhere were their differences more apparent than in their choice of accommodations. The Aga Khan held court in his suite at The Ritz, while Gandhi stayed in a welfare hostel in the East End slums. Gandhi’s purpose in London was to secure selfrule for his country. In this, he sought the Aga Khan’s support, but the meeting was inconclusive. Gandhi later confided that he knew his mission in England was failing. Upon arriving home in December, he was arrested; as always, he used his confinement as an opportunity to strengthen his resolve. It would take another 15 years for India to achieve independence, and then under conditions — the separation of Hindus and Muslims — that Gandhi bitterly opposed. But his example of nonviolent protest changed the face of politics, inspiring such figures as Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama and Aung San Suu Kyi. http://WWW.RITZCARLTON.COM
