ON THE EVE OF NEW YEAR---- 2010

It was 3.30 in the morning, my usual rising time, and the reading material in my hands was a small leaflet sent by my colleagues of CONSCIENCE, London, UK. I consider it appropriate to share it with my Gandhitopia family. I hope it will be of some interest to you.

2009 Pune City highlights

Twice in 2009, Pune city welcomed Gandhian constructive workers from all over India.



In January, two thousand Gandhian followers working in different parts of the country attended the national conference where one of the visiting guests was the Dalai Lama. It was heartening for us, the small band of Pune Gandhian workers to meet and interact with so many of our brothers and sisters doing similar work elsewhere. We felt united with them by an invisible bond.



The January… Continue

Nonviolent Livelihood Struggle and Global Militarism: Links & Strategies

International Conference, Ahmedabad, India, 22 - 25 of January 2010





There is an inescapable link between the globalisation-induced displacement, dis-employment and dispossession that are results of internal wars and ravage local, traditional and indigenous natural-resource based communities everywhere. There is a linkage between these and the monstrous international wars - whether they are fought in Afghanistan, Iraq, Congo or… Continue

A "Lamp Of Hope At The Doorstep" - 'Dehleez Pe Chiragh' - on 30th January evening

A new proposal calls upon people worldwide to express their faith in Non-Violence (Ahimsa or Adam-e-Tashaddud) with a simple act - lighting a lamp at their door or window on the evening of the Mahatma's assassination.



"The light has gone out of our lives, and there is darkness everywhere." said Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, in his evening address to the nation after Hindu fanatic Nathuram Godse assassinated Mahatma Gandhi on the lawns of Birla House (now 'Gandhi… Continue

ON THE EVE OF CHRISTMAS

Every year Christmas comes and we celebrate it in a traditional way. Let us try to add some thing new this year. Instead of spending money on gifts and expensive parties, can we think of having silent fast to remember the Day as to why we remember Crist and celebrate Christmas? Gandhi used to do silent fast once in a week. It is a power ful instrument to generate Power within..Let us try once.

Mahatma Gandhi's and mine appear

Kathmandu, Nepal, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in the town of Porbander in the state of present-day Gujarat on October 2, 1869. Gandhi believed that the edifice of lasting peace could on be erected upon the foundation of love, compassion, tolerance, coexistence and nonviolence.



I would like to show my love and respect to Gandhi through a poem I wrote for him:



"Mahatma Gandhi's and mine appear"

Violence against women

Kathmandu, Nepal, — This is a true story. Recently, my friend Chandrakala was brutally gang-raped in Biratnagar, Nepal. After she was raped, she sent me a letter about how Nepal’s bad political situation, war and bad leadership has allowed for women to be raped. Biratnagar’s political and security situation is bad. It's bad in Kathmandu too. It is especially bad news for women's safety. In fact, society’s outlook towards raped women in Nepal is not good.



Political activities go on in… Continue

Peace And Women

I present an award to a local woman in Nepal, May 2008, as my friend Suchitra and other women look on

Kathmandu, Nepal, — Literacy means the ability to read and write and is a key to the development of women in Nepal. For the many illiterate women in Nepal, the mere ability to read and write is a big step towards doing well in life and society. Thus, my interest to contribute towards increasing literacy in women. I was eager to write about my… Continue

Meeting Mother Teresa

Meeting Mother Teresa



Kathmandu, Nepal, I was 14 when I met Mother Teresa. She had a sentimental heart and appeared like a real mother. When I visited her, she came close to me and said in an endearing tone, "God gives you happiness." I felt special and happy. I was honored.



She was in total peace with herself and walked to the window, "You are always engrossed in love, in life! That is more important than wants, struggles and thought."



I slowly look at her and… Continue

Arun Gandhi's Thought

I would like to discuss two quotes from Arund Gandhi:



Arun Gandhi said: "You can quote me as saying Mahatma Gandhi would disagree with the Plowshares actions because they employ tactics of secrecy and destruction of property. I also think locking up the most courageous and devoted peace leaders for long prison terms is a way of weakening the peace movement. Those leaders could do much more for peace outside of jail than in it." ( The Jesus Journal - Summer 1995 - No. 77 - page 44… Continue
