Mahatma Gandhi Community Forum


In the context of 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi and by way of paying tribute to his philosophy of wisdom and truth,  Nandini Voice for the Deprived, a Chennai based NGO has released a book on  “What is wisdom and why is it necessary?”.

The book has been authored by N.S.Venkataraman, Trustee, Nandini  Voice for the Deprived. Book is not priced.

The book defines wisdom  and goes on to lament that the world is in turmoil today mainly due to lack of  wisdom amongst large section of people around the world including  political leaders in different countries.

While the need for wisdom is the central theme of all religious scriptures , somehow it has not made an impact on the mindset of most people.

After discussing various issues relating to wisdom , the book goes on to advocate the need for introducing three months compulsory course in schools all over the world on  the importance of wisdom,  for the benefit of children in the formative age group. When children grow up with awareness about the need of wisdom, it will have a big  and positive impact on  the global  scenario ,  promoting  love harmony and peace.

The book has appealed to United Nations Secretary General to organize a world conference on the need for wisdom and adopt a resolution in the UNO,  where all member  countries  would pledge themselves to promote the cause of wisdom, as it has been done in the case of  yoga  movement..
