The Living Gandhi

Sub title: Lessons for Our Times

Author: Tara Sethia, Anjana Narayan

This inspiring volume presents unique insights from leading international scholars, activists, educators and thought leaders on the contemporary relevance of Gandhi’s ideas and actions. The essays here reveal that for Gandhi legitimate coercion by the state in certain cases was compatible with ahimsa; a balance between spiritual and material values was essential for a true civilization, and swaraj anchored in self-discipline and self-restraint was an imperative for sustainable ways of life. The essays also illustrate how Gandhi has been instructive for ethical business leadership, socially responsible investing and entrepreneurship, transformative education and caring for nature. This book compellingly reaffirms the continuing significance of Gandhi’s wisdom for a just and peaceful world.
