Charlie Chaplin turns 116 in a Kutch town

From the Sunday Express of India: "There's not much to see in Adipur. But today, this prosperous outpost in the Kutch desert, about 20 km from the Kandla port in Gujarat, commemorated an event most of us didn’t even know about: Charlie Chaplin’s 116th birthday.

Late in the evening, 56-year-old Dr Ashok Aswani, president of the town’s club of Chaplin addicts, Charlie Circle, culminated four days of celebration with a cake-cutting ceremony for The Tramp, before settling in with neighbours and friends to watch Gold Rush for the nth time."

That should be the way how we commemorate this genius. But unfortunately many of us just don't know his birthday. There's another article commemorating his 116th birthday at discover chaplin newsletter.
