When Mahatma Gandhi entered the Central Hall of the Government Circuit House at Ahmedabad on the 18th of March, 1922 to face a trial on a charge of sedition under section 124A of the Indian Penal Code about two hundred spectators inside the improvised courtroom stood up as a mark of respect to the frail figure in loincloth. The spectators included Kasturaba, Sarojini Naidu, Pandit Malaviya,N.C. Kelkar, Smt. J.B. Petit and Ansuyaben Sarabhai.… Continue

It will be a rare confluence of the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Junior, nostalgia and jazz when Martin Luther King III comes to India Saturday to retrace the “pilgrimage” of his father 50 years ago.

The trip by Martin Luther King III, the eldest son of Martin Luther King Jr and Coretta Scott King, will be bristling with historical memories as he begins his India visit from New Delhi and goes to landmarks his father visited from Feb 10 to March 10,…

Today I met with Shanti Ghosh, Sudhir Ghosh's wife (Sudhir was Gandhi's Emissary)

Clayborne Carson thought it would be good for me to share with the community about my time with Shanti Ghosh in New Delhi. I work here helping the poor, and besides Gandhi and MLK, Senator Harris Wofford is one of my heroes. At the age of 88 Shanti Ghosh, who lives in New Delhi, India, is just as bright and lucid as someone might be in their 30s. Shanti and her late husband Sudhir Ghosh lived through an… Continue

The Pope's Easter message

I admire the Pope's message as we reflect the Easter season. As men and women of faith, we must pray to God for the end of war. Our president is in the midst of making very crucial decisions. My heart goes out to the families of our men and women over in Iraq and Afghanistan. Dr. King's three evils were racism, poverty, and war. I agree as well. King was a founding member and the first president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Their motto was, "To Redeem the Soul of America".… Continue

Game Theory vs Gandhian Theory

Definitely cheers to Obama for some hardspeaking to spolied Americans, otherwise it was difficult to get the Economic of America on rails by him.

However, many American strategiests have been relying on "Game theory" invented by Von Neumann & John Nash etc in not the fields of Market, Banks, Economy only but also designing their strategy on Terrorism, Afghhnistan, Pakistan & Iraq etc. on the basis of "Nash Equillibrium".

Neumann & Nash themselves said that the… Continue

Dr. King on Easter Wknd-April 1963!!!! Happy Easter everybody!!!

Easter Weekend.....1963!!!

Dr. Martin Luther King was arrested in Birmingham, AL for helping to fight for racial equality. Instead of fighting the police and racism, he kneeled in prayer to God along with many others. While in jail, he wrote the famous "Letter from a Birmingham Jail!" A letter in response to criticism from local Birmingham preachers urging him to call off the protests in the city. One message stated there was that the word "wait" almost always meant… Continue

Great MLK/Nonviolence Training Film

I urge all members to see the documentary, "King: Man of Peace in a Time of War," which features a remarkable interview of MLK on the topic of his opposition to the Vietnam War. This interview provides a highly instructive example of how to handle criticism effectively (and nonviolently), a great training film from a nonviolence education standpoint. In addition, MLK's well-reasoned critique of US military intervention in Vietnam translates exceptionally well to our times and to the quagmires… Continue
