No. 1: In today’s universe where a atomic onslaught is merely a button off. the menace of which does non ask any ground. coevalss have certain forgotten the adult male who gave up his full life. fighting for the cause of non-violence. The adult male who harmonizing to Nehru. strived throughout to pass over a tear from every human oculus. now remains confined to pages of history text editions. But for Gandhi Jayanti and Martyr’s Day. Mahatma Gandhi would hold about been a distant yesteryear. for many. sing that his ideals of ahimsa have long been buried as antique doctrines that have no relevancy whatsoever to contemporary India. If non. would at that place hold been so much hatred and bloodlettings? Religious intolerance. parochialism. communal inharmoniousness. unabated corruptness and all other modern-Indian frailties which Gandhiji foresaw and flatly voiced against. have lacerated the country’s integrity and its Godhead holiness. Therefore in my sentiment. there is no relevancy of Gandhism today.
No. 2: I to the full agree with the positions of No. 1 Gandhiji’s preaching’s of non-violence seem to hold no impact whatsoever. as force and spiritual intolerance. derive more evidences in his ain land. It is go oning non merely in Gujarat but everyplace in the state. Gandhiji’s ideals have become quite irrelevant now. The emerging societal and economic scenario in India demands much more than what Gandhiji could hold perchance offered if he were alive now. The doctrines and working schemes have long been changed after Gandhiji. And Gandhiji himself had to pay the monetary value with his life. as his ideals were acquiring redundant. so. No. 3: I had to interfere with you my friend No. 2. as the younger coevals demand to resuscitate him from the text editions and follow his ideals. They need to detect his sense of organisation and responsibility. to show in a better tomorrow. And childs. whose heads can merely raise up images of Ben Kingsley when Gandhiji is mentioned. have already started to inquire. as to how the half-naked fakeer could hold won the country’s freedom through a non-violent battle.
Gandhiji. if born in the modern-day times. would surely hold had evolved different doctrines to undertake the state of affairs. The argument is non whether Gandhiji would hold been able to work out the crisis or non. the point is to understand the character of the adult male. the uprightness and truthfulness. which reflected “Indianness” .
No 4: It is sad and hapless but it is true that even the most optimistic surviving Gandhian will profess that his precious ideals remain inhumed deep under the concluding expanse of globalisation and consumerism. While globalisation has killed his construct of self- sustaining small towns. the latter destroyed ideals like simple life manner. stress on human factor and minimal development of nature. The Mahatma had worshipped values of life and the agencies and terminals likewise. Now the of all time hungry capital and mindless machines have become the world’s new Gods. No. 5: I am of the position that Gandhian values have non wholly faded off in the modern epoch. Get downing as a craze the vegetarian motion has non merely distribute far and broad but acquired new significance and new marks. Departmental shops have been forced unfastened separate “organic” subdivisions. This has encouraged a whole batch of new industry and organic agriculture. Like the leafy vegetables. they have found new mark in genetically modified nutrient. something on which the corporates have made heavy investing and wanted to market in a large manner.
No. 6: Beloved friends. the point of views held by all of you have lent me to deduce two Gandhian traits. First is the increasing antipathy to inordinate industrialisation and forced consumerism. This marks a reinvention of the virtuousnesss of nature and demand for reserve of environment. The 2nd and most obvious has been the acceptance of the Gandhian tools for mobilisation and affirmatory action.
In an epoch where a direct confrontation with globalised capitalist economy is unthinkable. the inactive Gandhian theoretical account of affirmatory action has several advantages. So long as the motion remains inactive. the constitution is improbable to swoop on it. This has been the form even when some groups in the USA had on occasion resorted to their ain version of Gadhian civil noncompliance. Furthermore. none of the bing motions have the organisation or staying power to defy a fully fledged confrontation with the constitution. which could destruct the Soviet system. The pacifism has the enormous potency of mutely educating the people about the at hand catastrophes.
The strengths of modern capitalist economy are its invention. efficiency. fight and spread. nevertheless. each of these is bound to come into struggle with the necessities of human nature. The system dose non acknowledge any one in between the corporate office and the consumer. While raising investing and production and bettering the quality of the merchandises and their range. it ignores the adult male behind the machines – somethings critical to Gandhiji-his occupation. his minimal demands. The Gadhian tools of protest enable the militant groups to educate the people about this contradiction.
