Gandhi 3.0 - Talks by Nipun Mehta & Arun Gandhi (video)
A couple of month's back, Nipun revisited Trishna's hometown of Bakersfield, where he was invited to keynote at a university conference on nonviolence in honour of Gandhi's 150th anniverary alongside Arun Gandhi, one of Gandhi's grandsons. His lecture explored "Gandhi-the-man," who was a seeker throughout his life, and the concept of Gandhi 3.0, which highlights how Gandhi's values have evolved and been brought to life in different ways over the years. Arun Gandhi, who opened with a sweet remark, "Nipun is a tough act to follow," :) shared stories about lessons he learned from his grandfather. When you have some spare time, sit down with a cup of tea and be inspired by this video of both Nipun and Arun Gandhi's talks.
We leave you with this inspiring story about how one person's kindness connected with the heart of another living on the streets. Wishing you a beautiful season of togetherness with friends and family.
With love and gratitude,
Trishna, Ani, Mita, Vicky, Shamash, Ewa and Prashant
