The Gandhi-King Community

For Global Peace with Social Justice in a Sustainable Environment

"This work is just a drop in the ocean," Jayesh Patel observes."But a teardrop of compassion changes everything." So says the founder of an organization catering expressly to the 4500 residents of a slum community in Ahmedabad, India. In a remarkable walking interview with a man who had never before agreed to appear on-camera, Patel shares a simple philosophy: give everything to whatever comes up in a moment. "No ambition--mission!" he advises with a smile. "Don't stretch, never stretch. Wherever you are is the best time for you, whoever you're around are the best people for you. That's living in the present."
