Obituary for Veteran Journalist and Human Rights Activist, Praful bidwai by Vibhuti Patel, 25-6-2015

It is difficult to accept that Praful is no more. Two days back he passed away in Amsterdam, The Netherland. Now, who will spontaneously respond to right wing onslaught on the masses in these difficult times, both globally and within India?I got to know Praful in 1974 in Mumbai in a meeting organised by the New Left group of young revolutionaries to which he belonged, when Com. Ernest Mandel, a noted Marxist economist visited India for lecture series. At that time, all of us known as “the New Left” believed that revolution was round the corner. Praful was intellectually versatile and spoke on any political issue with passion, data base, logic and aggression.

During 1970s, he was a star of New Left Group called MAGOVA (English meaning of this Marathi word is Road Map) had a convincing style of speaking. While studying at Indian Institute of Technology, Praful and his friends got…See More

Dear Professor Patel,

I'm a British teacher in Turin, Italy, and I recently joined the Gandhi-King community. A few years ago I read an excellent article by you in the India Together bulletin on women and mental illness, including a section on stages in recovery.

For the last 3 years, I've been helping a human rights website HURRARC.org, as an online volunteer for HURRARC,  a human rights campaigning organisation in Sierra Leone, still recovering from civil war. At present I'm in touch with Meha Dixit, an Indian Phd. research student from  Delhi University,  who at the end of this month (Jan) will be visiting Sierra Leone for a month to study the country's tragic history of child soldiers.  She is especially interested in their reintegration into normal life. If you have any suggestions or references, please contact her at mehadixit@gmail.com. From a woman's point of view I don't think the question concerns girl soldiers, but it concerns the girls and women who were often the main target of these child soldiers,

I'm also enclosing a pamphlet I  have written on mental health, which I hope you may find

in solidarity

George Wright

Dearest Dr. Vibhuti, I'm afraid you must have mistaken me for someone else. I am not involved in setting up anything in Champaran. I have discussed Champaran in our book, (2010) Earth Ethics of M.K. Gandhi with teachings from Holy Mother Amma: an Introduction but am not setting up any formal institutions yet. At this time I am just writing, discussing, and talking about the ethical principles that govern our lives. I live with my son in Holy Mother Amma's ashram at Amritapuri, in Kollam, DT Kerala.
Kamala is a common name.
Loving you,
Aunty Kamala
