Jivannu Parodh

મારા બન્ને પિતામહ— જેમણે ઘરમાં સદાયે સન્માર્ગને જ પોષ્યો, જેમણે સિત્યાસી વર્ષની ઉંમર સુધી ઉત્સાહી વિદ્યાર્થીનું જીવન ગુજાર્યું, અને જેઓ છેલ્લી પળ સુધી ભગવદ્ગીતાનું જ શ્રવણ-મનન કરતાં કરતાં શાંતિપૂર્વક પોતાનું ખોળિયું ઉતારી ગયા એ મોટા બાપુજીને; તથા જેમણે સદાયે સાચી કેળવણી આપવા પાછળ પોતાના પ્રાણ પાથર્યા, જેમને એંશી વર્ષની ઉંમરે પણ જીવનના પ્રચંડ ઝંઝાવાતો વચ્ચે જુવાનના જોમથી ઘૂમતાં થાક ન જણાયો, અને જેઓ પળે પળે અનાસક્તિયોગના આચરણ દ્વારા વામનને વિરાટના, કૃપણને ઉદારના અને કાયરને પુરુષાતનના પ્રત્યક્ષ પાઠ ભણાવી ગયા, તે બાપુજીને ચરણે...

ફ્રેંચ ક્રાંતિએ ઘણી જૂની સડેલી વસ્તુઓ મિટાવી દીધી; પણ વેર-ઈર્ષ્યામાંથી પ્રગટેલા તેના જુવાળમાં સામાન્ય માનવતાના કેટલાક સામાજિક સદઅંશોનો પણ ધ્વંસ થશે કે શું, એવો ભય સમકાલીનોને તેમ જ પછીના વિચારકોને લાગ્યો હતો. વિકટર હયુગોએ, 'ક્રાંતિ બસ નથી, તેનું લક્ષ્ય ઉત્ક્રાંતિ હોવું જોઈએ,' – એ મુદ્દા ઉપર જ આ રોમાંચક નવલકથા લખી છે. એ ઉત્ક્રાંતિનો તાંતણો ક્રાંતિના ઘમસાણમાંથી આગળ તારવી આપવા નવલકથાનો નાયક – બત્રીસલક્ષણો ગોવેં – આત્મબલિદાન આપે છે

My Gandhi

by Narayan Desai

"The book is neither my story nor Gandhi’s. It is an attempt to disclose how I discovered Gandhi, not only during my years of living with him, but also through his writings and particularly through my work after Gandhi’s death. Gandhi was a friend of mine when I was child in his Ashram. He turned into a philosopher and guide as I grew up. As the lotus blooms with the rays of the sun, I blossomed under Gandhi’s care and love. His force has been much more subtle and salubrious after his passing away. … Growing up with Gandhi, has been a matter of great joy to me. More than two third of the population of India today was born after Gandhi’s death. Time and time again, I encounter people who ask: ‘Did you see Gandhi? ‘What was he like?’ I particularly remember an Arab girl of thirteen living in Israel who was intensely keen to know about Gandhi. Joy shared is joy multiplied. My motivation to write this book comes from the fact that I want to share the joy that I had for the first score of years in my life with the younger generation throughout the world. But I would also like my joy-sharers to study Gandhian thought, his method of work and some of the solutions that he had offered to problems which we face even today. [From pre-text by the author]"

My Non-Violence

by M. K. Gandhi

"Non-violence in its dynamic condition means conscious suffering. It does not mean meek submission to the will of the evil-doer, but it means putting of one's whole soul against the will of the tyrant. Working under this law of our being, it is possible for a single individual to defy the whole might of an unjust empire to save his honour, his religion, his soul and lay the foundation for that empire's fall or its regeneration. Young India, 11–8–1920"

Non-Violence and Social Change

by J. S. Mathur

“In this hurricane of annihilating material power mankind will not be able to save itself from self destruction unless we all of us manage to practise non-violence in our relations with our fellow-men.” — Arnold Toynbee "Humanity stands at cross-road today. Several scholars and statesmen are worried about the catastrophe that humanity faces if we do not act with restraint and reason. Eminent scholars are now advocating increasing relevance on Gandhian techniques. At such juncture, the papers presented by 46 scholars for the seminar on ‘Non-violence and Social Change’ held in 1971 are being published in the present volume with the hope that it rouses in the academic community a desire to study Gandhiji’s ideas in all its ramification."

Self-Restraint V. Self-Indulgence

by M. K. Gandhi

Those who believe in self-restraint must not become hypochondriacs. The letters that come to me show that many correspondents brood over their ill-success the exercise of self-restraint. Like everything else that is good, self-restraint too requires an inexhaustible store of patience. There is absolutely no reason to despond, and there must be no brooding. There should be no conscious effort to drive away evil thoughts. That process is itself a kind of indulgence. The best prescription perhaps is non-resistance, i.e., ignoring the existence of evil thoughts and a continuous preoccupation with duties that lie in front of one. This presupposes the existence of some kind of all-absorbing service requiring the concentration of mind, soul and body upon it. “Idle hands some mischief still will ever find to do”, is never so applicable as in this case. Evil thoughts, much more evil deeds are impossible when we are thus preoccupied. Strenuous labour in accordance with one’s physical capacity is, therefore, absolutely necessary for those who will obey the law of self-restraint which is indispensable for individual as well as universal progress. M. K. Gandhi

The Educational Philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi

by M. S. Patel

“By education, I mean an all-round drawing out of the best in child and man—body, mind and spirit. Literacy is not the end of education nor even the beginning. It is one of the means whereby man and woman can be educated. Literacy in itself is no education.” … “the aim of education should be to develop to the full the potentialities of every child at school, in accord always with the general good of the community of which he is a member.” M. K. Gandhi

The Mind of Mahatma Gandhi

by M. K. Gandhi

Only now and again does there arise above the common level some rare spirit, who, having thought about God more deeply, reflects more clearly the divine purpose and puts into practice more courageously the divine guidance. The light of such shines like a strong beacon on a dark and disordered world. Gandhi belongs to the race of the prophets who have the courage of the heart, the courtesy of the spirit and the laughter of the unafraid. Through his life and teaching, he bears testimony to the values for which this country has stood for ages, faith in spirit, respect for its mysteries, the beauty of holiness, the acceptance of life’s obligations, the validity of character, values which are neither national nor international, but universal. … There is so much misunderstanding today about Gandhi’s views and ways of thinking. This book, where we find collected together the relevant extracts from Gandhi’s own writings on the central principles of his faith and conduct, will help to make Gandhi’s position clearer to the modern mind. [From Foreword, 1945] S. Radhakrishnan

Tryst with Destiny

by H. L. Trivedi

When a marathon runner is getting closer to his destination towards the end of his race, he is physically and emotionally exhausted and then he starts questioning himself about the meaning of what he is doing. However, in the end, when he emerges a victor, all his sweat and toil is forgotten. I must say, that something similar happened to me and therefore I feel that, may be, my story may generate some interest to the people who are receptive to the tales of adventure of an uncommon man doing uncommon things in an uncommon way, for the common man on the street; which happens to be my way!
