January 31, 1949.  On the first anniversary of Gandhi's assassination, post offices all over India used a line from a popular hymn sung by Gandhi and his followers.  The line was printed in Devanagiri script (Hindi), in a variety of designs.  Shown are two covers with the slogans, one first-flight cover from Nagpur to Delhi and another local mailing in Poona (near Bombay).
