Mahatma Gandhi was one of twentieth century’s most transformative political leaders. Gandhi shines not only for his advocacy of non-violence, but also for wanting to root out social evils like communal hatred, untouchability, and gender disparity. Gandhiji was a proponent of the charkha or the spinning wheel, an advocator of self-sufficient villages, and a man who stressed on the virtues of self-suffering. But the younger generation has often been detracted from his greatness. His essential goodness seems to be little known to an entire generation that has grown up on a monochromatic image of Bapu. 

This book gives us a perfect opportunity to look beyond Gandhi, the icon, and make a genuine attempt to assimilate the thoughts of an individual who has inspired so many lives.

Please join us for the launch of Gandhi's Vision: Freedom and Beyond by the author late Aparna Basu, celebrating the iconic figure in the history of Indian independence in the gracious presence of:

Lord Bhiku Parekh, political theorist and member of the House of the Lords,

Prof Ashis Nandy, political psychologist, social theorist, and critic, and

A. Annamalai, Director, National Gandhi Museum & Library.

The launch ceremony will be dedicated to the late author.

We look forward to have you all.
