GOSH! What have we done to Gandhi

Gosh! from the Foundation of The Billion Press asks the simple question: What have we done to Gandhi? In the land of his birth, Gandhi is increasingly being misrepresented, misinterpreted and misread, often deliberately. Gosh! seeks to correct this imbalance with well-reasoned, fact-based and research-oriented arguments.

Seeking Gandhi

The relentless attacks on Gandhi in recent times tell us that we have not really worked to understand Gandhi, let alone strive to walk on the path he showed us.  Gosh! hopes to work with noted Gandhians, scholars, academics and others to offer narratives that might lead us to a better reading of Gandhi and the Gandhian path. 

Gandhi from our columns

Gosh! will also feature on these pages a collection of news columns and analysis relating to Gandhi and conversations and events around him in contemporary India. These columns, already published through the Foundation of The Billion Press in several newspapers, come from our bank of columns filed in the recent past. They are listed on this page within the category given as 'Gandhi'.
