THE PIONEER 6TH OCTOBER 2009, GANDHI JAYANTI

The article in the Pioneer on Gandhi Jayanti as quoted by Sri Natwar Bhai is worth reading. It is not only in India, in one corner, but the whole world, unfortunately, has been the victim of increasing social violence in resent times.



What is the reason?



If we try to remember what Mahatma Gandhi had said about the cause of social violence in our local and global society, I think we could have overcome this phimomenon to some extent, but humanity has yet to grow to that… Continue

Mont Blanc Pens?

It was really disheartening when i read about the Mont Blanc pens. Gandhi is about simplicity, austerity, self reliance....... Is not launching pens in the range of lakhs contradictory to Gandhi principles? Needless to mention the use of "Gold wire" representing a cotton yarn is the worst feature. Mont Blanc has not understood "Gandhi".
