30 January 1948 went along like any other day for Mahatma Gandhi, until 5:17 pm when Nathuram Godse shot at him three times in what was a well-planned and ultimately successful assassination attempt.

Here, we relive some of the moments from Gandhi's last day, starting from his prayers first thing in the morning, to the exchanges he had with his loved ones, and his last meeting held with Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
