Gene Chapman Hears From Arun Gandhi

Dear Arun,
It is so nice to hear from you after all these years.  I'm almost in tears.  I lost track of you back during my fasting a decade ago.
I read that you lost you dear wife.  My heart goes out to you and your family.
I converted to Gandhian Philosophy (One who worships God as Truth Only) in 2011, after giving your letter many years of thought wherein you described how there is nothing of man that is inn-errant and seeing several errors in my Inn-errant Christian interpretation.
Please see: and help me think this all through.
I am nine classes from what is essentially a Social Economy bachelor's at the University of North Texas, and I am contemplating a flight to India to explore a Master's and Ph. D. in Gandhian Philosophy at Gujarat Vidyapith.  Do you know if English only speakers and writers can function at your grandfather's school?  They are very hard to interact with on the Internet.
Most respectfully,
Gene Chapman, Founder and CEO
Mahatma Gandhi Global Library and Book Exchange

I do not believe that governments have the moral right to number people as cattle, so I have not in 46 years on earth pursued one.  That's all.

s the  U.S. fond of playing around with the issuing of passports and making it a big issue. Many Gandhians (atleast three by now) are caught up with this kind of problem with the passport. I just recalled how I managed to loss my passport back in 1997 in the U.S. I also remember the same with that of late Mr. Jeff Knaebel.

Gene I have a website.....wwwwalkwithgarvin...set up by my daughter. Please also have a look at the website .. Parijat Academy is where I stay when I am in the North East of India. I don't understand your inability to get a passport what is the problem.

Thank you Gavin.  I do not have a passport for Tolstoyian reasons he covers in his book, The Kingdom of God Is Within You, so travel to India is not possible now.  I do not think the government has the right to number me as cattle.  If I determine a trip is required, your idea will be front and center.

Gene I think the best way to learn about Gandhi,s methods is to ... Go to India and walk thru the villages, sit down with the Poor and just connect, you don,t need to be able to discuss philosophy with them (they wouldn,t even know what philosophy means) In Gandhi's words ....step down from our pedestals and go and live with the people who are suffering and experience their hardships and sorrows.
