Adorable Indian Children Dress As British Oppressors, Also That Wuss Gandhi

To celebrate Gandhi's birthday and the UN's International Day of Non-Violence yesterday [yeah, I missed it, too], Indian children were dressed up as the leader of India's independence movement, Mahatma Gandhi, and the pith-helmeted troops of The Raj, and paraded in front of Agence France Presse cameras. After the above photo was taken, the Gandhi kids sat down in the middle of the street, and the British troop kids beat the crap out of them.

Seems the lessons of the International Day of Non-Violence have not quite sunk in yet.
