I have volunteered myself to be a trainee in INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR ON NONVIOLENCE going to be held in June 2011. The organisers of the Seminar have been kind to provide part of the expenditure to me as I was not able to spend all the money. I am greatful to them. My basic interest is to learm more about the ideas of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his approach to practice Nonviolence in solving social probelems at the global level. In today's World we have been witnessing

unrest and agressiveness. It is also because of the spirit of compition instead of complementation in the over all Global Civil Society. Active Nonviolence is the only answer to this increasing unhealthy trends. Regular training in nonviolence to the Global Society as a whole is essential.

 

Many years back I was a participent in a such celebration where young daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. was also there. Dr. Arun Gandhi was one of the key speakers. This gathering was organised by University of Austin, Texas in late 1992. Dr. Lester Kurtz, was an instrument to get me there. The experiment was very encouraging. I myself started my public carrier as a fulltimer in Rajghat School of Non-violence in New Delhi. This was the first of its kind in India. It was started by Gandhi Peace Foundation, New Delhi. Dr. Devendra Kumar Gupta, popularly known as Devendrabhai, was the initiator and I had the good luck to work with him for almost three decades.

 

I hope this opportunity will definately provide me more chances to learn more and I am looking forward for this and would like to share the benifits with Gandhitopia family.

"INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR ON NONVIOLENCE" sound interesting. What I really find fascinating is that you have volunteered yourself to be a trainee.

Would you care to let us know a little bit more about the organisers an dthe seminar as such.

Of course, I shall be excited to learn about your experiences.
