The Relevance of Gandhiji: Bipan Chandra

Bipan Chandra, a doyen of modern Indian history, outlines the basic contours of Gandhi’s relevance in today’s world. A range of issues such as Gandhi’s views on religion, morality in politics, industrialization, non-violence, vegetarianism, even questions of sex, marriage and love marriage have been discussed here. He suggests to ask questions like which Gandhi is relevant to us today most? Or, what made him the leader of the India’s freedom struggle? For him, Gandhi was the champion of the struggle against all oppression, all discrimination and all domination. That’s why he could inspire many world leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela.
