Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Houston's New "Gandhi District" is U.S. First - KIAH: "Diversity has a name in a brand new Houston district. The southwest Houston area widely known as 'Little India' is now officially the Mahatma Gandhi District.

Street signs naming the area started popping up a couple weeks ago in the area of Hillcroft Avenue and Harwin Drive. While it seems as simple as a name, it's much more than that for the entire country.

'It's the first time in the U.S. Nobody's got a name like this one,' said Aku Patel, owner of Karat 22 Jewelers in the Gandhi District."

When they come up with a Jayne Mansfield District I might consider moving.
