About me / us
The Gandhi Foundation exists to spread knowledge and understanding of the life and work of Mohandas Gandhi (1869-1948). Our most important aim is to explain and demonstrate the continuing relevance of Gandhi’s insights and actions for all of us in the UK. The Gandhi Foundation promotes:

1. Nonviolence to replace war and aggression

2. Decentralised, egalitarian economic systems such as cooperatives and trusteeships

3. Simple lifestyles that avoid an endless quest for more possessions and superficial experiences. This is essential to preserve the planet’s finite resources and prevent ecological disaster

4. Democratic systems that are decentralised, human-scale, and involve the active participation of everyone

5. Tolerant pluralistic societies. Gandhi regarded different religions and philosophies as each possessing some but not the whole truth

6. Respect for animals and an end to their exploitation by humans

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.
