Gandhi Peace Walk- Irishman dressed as Gandhi makes it to D.C

Posted on November 16, 2009 at 23:00 0 Comments

Well my Dear Boys and Girls, after fifteen months of walking the country, I have finally made it home. Here we are at the end of one road and the beginning of another, such is Life. A man once asked me, "Why are you walking across the country?" At the time i didn't know why, maybe it was just to stretch my legs or lose a few pounds. Well, I still can't tell him the Why of it, but I can most certainly tell him what I have learned from doing it. It goes something like this.

Starting off in… Continue

Gandhi Peace Walk -- Got Any Cockles?

Posted on August 6, 2009 at 5:04 0 Comments

Well my dear boys and girls here we are again. Friday of last week I crossed over the border into Virginia, (2,756 miles later) the last state of my peace walk. Here is a litle story to warm the cockles of your heart.

I left my transport vehicle in Nashville,TN and decided to pick it up in four weeks. I wanted to experiment with letting go of all my attachments to things and just see what happened. An experiment in Trust if you will. You see I believe that we are abundant beings and the… Continue

Love The Ones Your With

Well my dear readers, here we are again. It's now June and I have been away from my little home in L.A for 12 months now, but I am on the home stretch. I am currently 80 miles from Nashville with 2,346 miles under my feet and 700 to go. I will arrive happily in Washington D.C. on August 1st, all going well. Right now the only complaint I have is some blisters I have acquired from the burning Tennessee asphalt. Blisters are… Continue

Gandhi Peace Walk -- February Blog Self-Love What's All The Fuss?

Posted on March 1, 2009 at 3:45 2 Comments

Well my dear girls and boys, here we are again. I am now in Little Rock, Arkansas, (bless my little Irish feet) the weather has been nippy but nice. It's been a busy month. I've talked about a lot of topics during the last eight months of my peace walk across America, but there is one topic I have avoided until now. The topic is Self-Love. Now what does that actually mean to love yourself. Should I hug myself, kiss myself all over, or even make love to myself (clean thoughts only please).… Continue

Well boys and girls, lads and lassies, may I be the second to wish you a happy healthy and wholesome New Year. Where does the time go? I just don't know. Now to what I do know, which is very little indeed. I know that it is a Monday afternoon and I'm parked in the forest, its cold outside, and it has been raining all day. I know I am in Oklahoma and approximately 110 miles from the Arkansas border. I also know that I haven't showered for a few days and it's a good… Continue

Movie: Midshot- an experiment with truth based on Gandhi- Godse ideology.

Watch Now- you can contact me at

Synopsis: "MID SHOT- an experiment with truth is about the travails of a director, Ram Bhardwaj who tries to unravel the assassination of his ideal, Mahatma Gandhi. He starts making a film called G2 which explores the Gandhi- Godse ideological divide. The film, while still in the making, to the director's dismay, becomes a subject of controversy and the distorted projection of it even leads to communal riots. Meanwhile, pressure mounts on the director by vested interests to ideologically slant the film. How the movie on Gandhi then becomes an experiment with truth in his own life and makes him search for answers in his inner self, is what the movie is all about.

India Redefined the movement which I started last year& got award for ,'The Best Humanitarian Initiative of the Year
has started three different projects- "I Care", " Educate India", "Develop Your Village".Join & be with me in Redefining India.

India Redefined draws its inspiration from Gandhian Movement which was a revolution focused on independence. It was also about specific actions like non- cooperation by citizens. We are just trying to apply many Gandhiji's principles’ in this era, in this society and during these times. Maybe in a different flavor! Maybe the context is different! Maybe it’s a different world! But the goal is same! He also wanted India a better place to live in.

Thousands of people have joined this movement across the globe but we have only 37 Chapter co-ordinators till now to take on the responsibility, by rotation in different cities of India.It is voluntary work. If you want to suggest anyone's names for Chapter coordinator, then please send me a mail regarding this at
