From Kashmir to Cauvery - India’s internal pain

WHO WILL SPIRITUALISE EDUCATION?

Shri Ramachandran Nair recollects September 28, 2016

 

Heeding to his "Rajya Guru's" advise Gandhiji tried in vain to spiritualise Indian politics and won independence for India from colonial rule through peaceful means and for the first time introduced "constructive program" as a main weapon in any political activism. It is unfortunate that his life was taken away by an assassin's bullet and the abetters of this killing is now in power. Sans any spirituality in…

Real knowledge and reason lead one to persevere and live in harmony. Without…
