New Book Published: Mahatma on the Pitch - Gandhi and Cricket in India

Mahatma on the Pitch
Gandhi and Cricket in India


Written By: Kausik Bandyopadhyay

First Published : October, 2017

Price : Rs. 395/-


Published by : Rupa & Co.

About the Book:
 
Did Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi ever play cricket? Did cricket ever figure in the Gandhian world of thought? What were the views of the most important man in the history of India's freedom struggle on the game that dominates Indian national consciousness in the twenty-first century? Did he ever oppose the cause of cricket? Did cricket ever invoke Gandhi after his death?

These questions seem as remote as Gandhi's tryst with cricket! Mahatma on the Pitch tries to find answers to these apparently quirky questions by exploring the untold relationship between two of the most enduring phenomena of modern India: Mahatma Gandhi, arguably the greatest Indian icon of the twentieth century and Indian cricket, probably the most assertive Indian national emblem in the twenty-first-century world.

Why Gandhi Still Matters: An Appraisal of the Mahatma's Legacy
Why Gandhi Still Matters: An Appraisal of the Mahatma's Legacy

Written By:
 Rajmohan Gandhi
First Published : 5th May, 2017

Price : Rs. 499/-
Published by : Aleph Book Company

About the Book:
 
Close to 150 years after he was born, how relevant is Mahatma Gandhi? In our country, he is revered as the Father of the Nation; his face still adorns currency notes, postage stamps and government offices; streets and welfare schemes continue to be named after him but has he been reduced to a mere symbol? Do his values, message and sacrifice have any meaning for us in the twenty-first century? In Why Gandhi Still Matters, the Mahatma's grandson and award-winning writer and scholar Rajmohan Gandhi, appraises Gandhi and his legacy by examining some of his most famous (and often most controversial) ideas, beliefs, actions, successes and failures.

New Book Published: Gandhi Searches for Truth

Gandhi Searches for Truth

A Practical Biography for Children
 
(For the agegroup of 3 to 12 years)


By:
 Stephanie N. Van HookFirst Published : August 2016


To order copies online, please visit @ www.amazon.in or at www.mettacenter.org

About the Book:
Gandhi Searches for Truth is subtitled, A Practical Biography for Children, and that is exactly what it is. It uses the lens of Gandhi’s search for truth to walk children through the spiritual highpoints of Gandhiji’s life and unfold its great significance, emphasizing  its power to inspire them in their own searches.  It therefore fills an important niche, on at least two levels: it is informative on one of the greatest, if not the greatest person of the 20th Century, which is covered very inadequately if at all outside of India (and not always with the needed sensitiveness anywhere).  It also inspires and empowers children, in the best Montessori spirit, which can be vitally needed in this dispiriting world.  As information it fills a space left by, for example, Sri Eknath Easwaran’s Gandhi the Man, which takes a similar spiritual approach but is designed for high-school children and adults.
