The enduring relevance of Mahatma Gandhi's thought for our fractured world
Lecture and Discussion with David Barun Kumar Thomas, Gandhi Scholar and Founder, Inida Nirman Sang.
That our world is fractured and looks increasingly fragile is apparent. The important issues of our time including poverty, inequality, divisions, intolerance, violence, resource-greed, alienation and identity assertion are all becoming increasingly acute. Gandhi, a practicing Hindu, also believed in love as a fundamental human emotion and practice and he was able to weave this love of everyone and all creation into all his beliefs, principles and practices. He also was a spiritual explorer and experimenter and did not compartmentalize his spiritual beliefs but let them imbue all his views on society and politics. In this talk, we will be looking at this complex Gandhi and his unique contributions to today’s debates." I makes the sentence sound stronger.
