Mahatma Gandhi epitomised what it means to come to terms with the way we live our lives.
In a country with just over a billion people he introduced a policy of nonviolent civil disobedience against the Government of the day. Imprisoned several times for his views that Britain should leave India, he persisted, and in 1947 India was granted independence. Now the largest democracy in the world.
The phenomena of his existence, the simple philosophy and values he lived by, were so staggeringly effective, to so many conscious minds.
It was a deliberately simple way of being that we would find difficult to emulate. More so today than ever before. we are bombarded with every form of media to have things.
Things in general that have no relation to the substance of who we are. Today’s economies, and production are structured to use that message (unwittingly or deliberate) camouflaging our real needs.

To Mahatma Gandhi.

No bombs
No violence
No radicalization
Only a beautiful mind
So strong
It galvanized a nation.

The Charkha became the adopted symbol of individual responsibility, commerce, production, and the unity of a nation.

‘That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history’.
Aldous Huxley (26 July 1894 -22 November 1963.)
