Dear Tatimatla
Coming to the presentation, absolutely amazing presentation but the the relationship between Gandhijee and IISC Bangalore in one PPT should have been clearly mentioned or they could have been done away in two different ppts. Anyways good work. Keep it up. Gandhigiri se MBA karoge to Professor Logon ko Bemaut Zannat nahi milegi.

Attached is a PPT on the Mahatma (Presented at IIFT), with a comparative analysis of his style, with the style of one of our batch-mates.

U'll be surprised how relevant his style is, even today!

Hope u guys have fun going through it!

Hey Guys,

Can we please continue this thread...

I thought , the thread has died its natural death... The very fact that people find an issue or two to talk about Gandhism is a very good sign...

Could anyone please post some nice solutions to complex problems using Gandhism

If thats the case, where do u feel was Bapu before he was thrown out of that train?

I have great faith in Gandhi, especially his integrity.We may or may not agreee with all his actions (withdrawal after Chaurichaura-- or chorri chorra as we used to remember it for history exams,being adamant on making Nehru the PM)
One may dismiss Gandhi as a pacifist, but he is the need of the day.

Gandhiji is just a link, the message in its essence has been derived from Jesus,Budha and other greats.It is about man appealing to his own higher self.it is about minimising one's personal cravings and uplifting other persons in the process.

But PANACEA is too strong a word. whenever any ideology,ism or religion is seen as a panacea,it becomes dogmatic.
And Gandhian philosophy doesnt have any quick fixes.the solutions in Lage Raho were romanticised.It was grossly simplistic.
But to its credit, the movie have conveyed the message.

Gandhian philosophy( for those who dont like calling it hindu-jaina pacifism)
is the need of the hour.
World leaders who keep speaking about ''Out of the box thinking'' need not look any further--it is Gandhian philosphy they r looking for.
It is one classic example of the WIN-WIN approach.

Nice thread.keep going


Hey its been close to year since this was posted, but while I was going through the thread it was extremely tempting for me to comment. I don't know why there is a misconception, that Gandhi "wanted" Nehru to be the PM. Yes, agreed Nehru was his best pupil and his nomination but when the time came where partition was the risk involved, Gandhi was fine with the Moslem League getting an upper hand over the Congressa and he was willing to to let Jinnah be the PM at the cost of having a united India. Unfortunately, Nehru disappointed him and so did the Congress.

We cannot look at Tarzan,Mandrake etc, as these are fictional characters.

There might be a light at the end of the tunnel, so we need to travel into the tunnel further, to see the light.

What??? Tarzan, Mandrake etc are fictional characters? You mean to say my mom was lying to me all these years?

I guess I'll just have to throw my entire comics collection (including Indrajal/Diamond Comics/Amar chitra katha) and my spiderman costume in the dustbin and look for inspiration elsewhere.

Now please don't tell me that the light at the end of the tunnel...is an incoming train.

Hi Highflyer,
Thats a great effort, Gandhi stopped eating meat after he had tasted it.
He renounced his clothes after enjoying the benefits of the clothes, the same follows for brahmacharya. This means he is not like a non-drinker who hasn't drunk. It is like a drunkard , who stops drinkin. It is really tough to know the benefit of a mal-practice and avoid doing it. Hats-off.:) This may sound a little silly to appreciate such small incidents. But we need to realize, the same mistake might blow upto big proportions. Thats what is happening here in India now.

HI,
I would like to make a point here, we are looking for solutions to problems. We cannot look at Tarzan,Mandrake etc, as these are fictional characters. We need an example, where a problem, which relates to our times being solved in a WIN-WIN way.And if Tarzan,Mandrake could provide such solutions , there is nothing wrong in using them.
As far as the personal problems go, the problem mentioned, should not be considered as personal,as this typically involves a moral dilemma.The solution given is good. But , is it the best one under the circumstances? is the major question.We should put in more efforts to bring out problems faced by todays society and try to come to a consensus on the solution.
It is not that the problem given is the only one. There are several others.Please think over this.There might be a light at the end of the tunnel, so we need to travel into the tunnel further, to see the light.
