Gandhi - Mallya Paradox

At the Newyork antiquorum auction house, Vijjay Mallya had the highest bid of $ 1.8 million to secure Gandhiji's 1910 silver Zenith pocket watch, sandals, a bowl, a 'thali' (plate) and some original letters. Gandhi fought liefelong for prohinition of alcohol consumption and sale where as Vijay Mallya and his ancesstors have amassed wealth by sale of liquor. Gandhi's legacy - his principles, policies, practices have been passed to the wrong hands and all of his legacies are slowly fainting to the oblivion. The passage of legacy to wrong hands, now includes his legacy of material items that he used and left in this world.

If you were so righteous, you should probably have bid $1.81 million and taken the watch to your house. I fail to see what your problem is.
