In regard to the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi I am a / we are an
others (see below)
About me / us
I was with Pesticide Action Network Asia and the Pacific and located in Penang, Malaysia till end April 2010. I have since returned home and continue as a writer-researcher-consultant on issues of food sovereignty, sustainable agriculture and small farmers.
My / our projects, events, campaigns, research, publications
My major concern is how the small farmers and other small food producers can regain the control over their farming and their lives, which has been snatched from them through the intrusion of corporations in the field. This has marginalized the small food producers and made agriculture another business. But agriculture was and is our 'culture', a status it must be restored to.
I am / We are member of the following institution(s)
I am coordinating the Dehra Dun district unit of the Sarvodaya Mandal (started by Vinoba Bhave and other Gandhians in April 1948). I am also a core member of Beej Bachao Andolan (Uttarakhand), a nonformal collective of small farmers and activists seeking to conserve native and traditional seeds and preserve the principle of traditional, holistic and sustainable agriculture.

To a large extent, Kasturba is already beginning to vanish from our collective memories.

It was with this concern that Sarvodaya Mandal celebrated Kasturba's birthday through conducting two meetings on 11 April 2012. First, in the hope of interesting young girls into…

For all those of us who believe religion to be a matter of personal faith, the news that a church in the United States has ‘baptised’ Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is quite touching. The ‘proxy’ baptism points to the fact that Gandhi…
