Why are you interested in the Gandhi-King Community?
I'm the director of Liberation Curriculum at the King Institute at Stanford and also the seminar assistant for the India 2008 overseas seminar. I put 'other' as my social change interest because I think that all the different options listed (peace, social justice, environment) as well as others not listed (education, healthcare, poverty etc.) are intertwined.
I look forward to meeting all of you!

The Gandhi Story, in his own words

Posted on July 31, 2009 at 4:19pm 3 Comments

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… Continue

Hey Ashni,sorry for the delay. This is something that i've been struggling with for a while now. Liberation, freedom, and justice, i've observed, have been often times limited to a particular a cause or agenda by people i've spoken with. One of our biggest battles so far has been the rift that's developed between some of the faith-based organizations and the surprisingly large LGBTQ association. both groups are very active with similar ambitions, but fail to even look at one another because of obvious reasons. There ideas of liberation and justice, from what i can understand, always find a way to include this debate.
-----------------
What's crazy about all this is that i saw one faith-based organization protest poverty in Athens. And the very next week, the LGBTQ group--along with others--staged a demonstration for the living wage campaign. Two causes that, in many ways, are one in the same.
----------------
I have tried to get everyone on the same page to show them just how influential they can be if they would combine their efforts. But doing so, it's been implied, would steer one faction off their conceptualized path to achieving justice. What do you think?
At 12:27am on March 26, 2009, Esayas Araya said…
Thanks for the encouragement Ashni. There are a lot of egos to contend with but it's always a special moment when different groups and people come together and fix their eyes on the same path.
--------------
I'm curious: In your liberation curriculum Initiative, how do deal with competing models of what liberation means? In my neck of the woods there is a strong and influential conservative voice whose idea of liberation often times challenges progressive, liberal-minded followers. Both extremes present legitimate & compelling arguments. How would you deal with this?

Ashni,
Yes, I agreed with you that all the issue listed are intertwined. Apart from my work in the Himalaya, I am also associated with a campaign for the Dignity and Rights of Sewerage workers, they are the real 'LAST MEN' of Gandhi JI, whenver you in India, do visit and meet these people and me too.
