Arab Wisdom – Selections from Mahatma Gandhi

Posted on August 7, 2015 at 2:31pm 0 Comments

Arab Wisdom – Selections from Mahatma Gandhi


Gandhiji had written excerpts from the book “Wisdom of the East” in his column of the Indian Opinion (28-12-1907), a newspaper he edited and published when he was in South Africa. The book contained extracts from the holy Koran, and reproduced the sayings of Arab thinkers on different matters. Actually the book was sent for a review from his office, and Gandhiji apparently had note-down his favorite words from the…

Gandhi statue vandalized in SA

Is it an act of sheer cowardice or frustration? Last Sunday, a man has tried to paint it white and erase all remarks on the statue, creating panic among the South African Police and in the Indian subcontinent as well to some extent.
Even though the…

Thanks indeed Shri Balamurali Balaji on my article on Marital Rape. You have taken pains to go into the problem in depth.

The Law in Bharat does not recognise marital rape. Our Vedic Dharm speaks volumes on Vedic Dharm bu there is not a word on marital rape.

Frankly speaking, it is a concept of the West where Women's Lib movement , inter alia, created a chasm between the husband and wife. We must encourage them to live together and NOT end up as single parent.

For N. Ashok Kumar

I agree India and China has taken different routes.  For first 65 years if independence, India adopted the Western socialist/ communist ideas, tried to destroy the ancient Indian culture and so did China.  Morals and ethics were ignored by the leaders in both countries for material prosperity.  In China it it is estimated that around 70 million Chinese died as a result of government policies.  British were very good at controlling media and school text books to show that they were very honest and benevolent rulers.  The truth was far from it.  British educated believed everything they read in text books and came to hate everything Indian - morals, ethics, scriptures, leaders, etc.

Thank you, Balamurali, for your support & review of the book.

Hope someone, somewhere will initiate a non-violent civil disobedience for a good cause for the benefit of common men.
