The infamous glasses Gandhi made popular + pair of sandles + watch + some nick nack = $1.8 million!!!

Quote:
Gandhi's glasses, as well as sandals, a watch and other artifacts belonging to the revered Indian independence leader, were sold to an Indian businessman on Thursday night in New York for $1.8 million — a bid aided by the Indian government.

Their owner, American collector and peace activist James Otis, offered to stop the sale and donate the items to India, if its leaders agreed to spend more on the poor. India rejected the demand as an infringement of the country's sovereignty and the auction went ahead.

I was surprised it was sold for only $1.8 million which is something even I can almost buy, and that is with a government backing!
If I represent the government trying to get back prized posession (especially when he does not have much) of a national hero, I would get someone to bid against myself to bring the price up to show how great this is!
That is low for "peace activist" to do what he did, use national pride of India as a hostage to get what he wants done. But we all know it is just an excuse so he/she can profit from this sale, just like the sale of Chinese treasure (another story)... I hope all India knows who this person is, and when this person needs help refuse to give it to him (better yet give bad help, yes sir type format c:). So no customer service from just about all big corporate companies that outsource to India, that ought to be a bit inconvenient.
