The Gandhi-King Community

For Global Peace with Social Justice in a Sustainable Environment

Recently, I attended a Wednesday evening meditation session run by Charity Focus (http://www.charityfocus.org/new/) in the Bay Area. While meditation is often followed by discussion of a passage, they hosted a speaker instead - Mahendra Meghani, a translator, editor, bookseller, and publisher. He is a Gandhian, son of a Gujarati poet Jhaverchand Meghani who was named by Gandhi as the national poet of India.

Mr. Mahendra Meghani's bio and a note on his innovative publishing co-operative making quality reading accessible to the poorest, can be found here: http://www.ijourney.org/med/index.php?pg=speaker&who=mahendra.

Since copyright on Gandhi's works lifted in 2008, he recently decided to write 'The Gandhi Story' - a volume on Gandhi's life, compiled and condensed from the larger Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi. The Gandhi Story is available online here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/17622693/The-Gandhi-Story-In-His-Own-Words.

However, do consider buying a copy. Please read the editor's note explaining his goals for the publication and how to purchase copies here: http://mjmeghani.blogspot.com/2009/06/letter-to-friends.html. His sincere request to all Indians who read the book is to share it with at least one American friend.

I hope you enjoy the book!

Best,
Ashni Mohnot
