Upon performing a simple reverse image search we found that the image was used in an article by The Hindu announcing the death of a veteran  photographer named Sridhar Naidu, who frequently photographed Gandhi. 

In the article, the image is clearly captioned that the Gandhi was eating corn on a cob and not fish.
