I have just come back from University of Rhode Island, Kingston. There was 10th International Course on Kingian Nonviolence. I attended this Course as a student as I was eager to know the foundations of Culture of Nonviolence as per King's experiments that he had made in US for more than two decades from the year 1950 to 1968.
In this short period of 11 days, I could understand the basics of Martin Luther King Jr. At the same time I also did comparative study with the…Continue

25 JUNE, RAJGHAT, NEW DELHI
As, You are aware that the fast of Irom Sharmila Chanu has crossed 10 years, with a demand to repeal AFSPA (Armed Forces Special Powers Act, 1958).

Anti-corruption movements have now caught the attention of people all over the world. People around the world are not tolerant anymore to lopsided accumulation of wealth by the few who have the opportunity to govern a country and the audacity and clout to stockpile money at home and abroad. During recent times we saw Anna Hazare coming out successful in convincing the Government to draft a bill. He also had to start the whole effort with a fast and had to pass lot of hurdles. Thank…Continue

Even during the Quit India Movement, Gandhiji did not go on fasting demanding that the British should…Continue
Gandhi Bashing: A popular sport of Modern Indians
I post regularly on Gandhi and I do have a personal philosophy which encompasses many thought processes including Gandhi’s ideas. His complete life is a message for me, his struggle with himself, his struggle with the oppressors, his ways, his words, and everything he did mark my words, everything he did. A man who personified that he always did what he taught correct and standing up to his high sense of morals.
My last post was…Continue

When the World has been silently and heplessly witnessing the war in North-Africa and Middle-East versus US, NATO and their Alliance over the issue of Terrorism and the defence of so called democretic System of the Western Developed nations, I got a chance to meet with a holy Monk from Shri Lanka, in Milan, Italy. It was the initiative of Ayurveda-devotee and a friend Sarah Marder. It was a very kind gesture that though he has to leave for Colambo tomorrow morning, Rev. Gunaratna was very…Continue
