Mahatma Gandhi was an Indian independence leader known for advocating nonviolent resistance.

On Christmas, Arthur Read imagined a Heroes of the 20th Century Parade in which Gandhi appeared among other heroes as a balloon. The parade's announcer quipped that Gandhi was showing "no resistance, passive or otherwise," to the adoring crowd that had gathered to watch the parade.
