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.

There is a statue of Mahatam Gandhi in the campus of University of North Florida. A picture of the same can be seen at the following link:

The above link will take you to a website made by me showing the statues of Mahatma Gandhi at places outside India. USA has about 14 such statues in different cities.

Since you seem to be examining food issues I would say that If the world accepted one precept of Vegetarianism advocated by Gandhi all the economic and evnironmental woes of the world would get solved.

How ? One may ask. Well the meat Industry of the world consumes huge amount of petroleum (transporting insecticides to feed farms, transporting feed to animal farms, transporting animals to slaughter houses, transporting meat of slaughtered animals to supermarkets/shops) contributing to 20% of green house gases. If every one goes vegetarian this petroleum is saved. Petrol prices would crash. Air travel would become cheap. People would travel across borders. Populations would get more mixed up in next 50 years or so and so wars would become less likely and global warming would reduce due to less green house gases. Moreover cancer cases would come down by half as various surveys have revealed that the risk of cancer is less prevalent in vegetarian communities.Land released from animal feed production would be used for food grains. (It takes 25 pounds of food grains to produce one pound of meat)  Problem of hunger and malnutrition would be reduced. Not to mention that the supply of potable water for human consumption would increase as 2500 liters of water goes into the production of one Kg of meat.

Thus as Gandhi gave one point programme of spinning khadi for India The one point programme for solving the economic/health/environment  problems of the world can be solved by one point program of going vegetarian.

Hope you are vegetarian. Gandhiji was strict vegetarian. Human being has choice - you can depend for your food on plants or animals or both. You have to choose. Tiger does not have such choice. If it kills deer, would it be considered violence? I think - No. This is the order of the nature. It does not go against that order. A human being eats non-vegetarian diet by choice and hence, he decides to do violance for the sake of taste. Do you agree with me? Today, non-vegetarian food is very popular. How can we rest in peace when we kill animals for food? let me know your views.
