Gandhi Quiz "A Way to Know Mahatma Gandhi"
Description
Preface

Every epoch of history has seen individuals who have made a decisive contribution, and but for whom the history of the period, not only in their own country or region, but sometimes on a global scale, would not have been the same.

Mahatma Gandhi is regarded as one such individual. Though it may still be too early to capture the profound impact Gandhiji had on our world, his place in the history of his time cannot be narrated, much less assessed, in any comprehensive manner without taking into account his own identity, character, vision and values.

The teaching and practice of Mahatma Gandhi show us the alternative path to strengthen all new democracies and develop healthy norms of public life. He did not leave any set of doctine of Gandhism behind him, but his life reflects his philosophy, which is so basic that it appeals to every human heart. ‘My Life Is My Message’ is the eternal message of the Mahatma to humanity.

Taking this message to the younger generation is a formidable challenge before us. It was this very generation for whom Albert Einstein had voiced his concern when he said, ‘Generations to come it may be, will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth.’ Gandhi Quiz’ is our humble attempt to make knowing and understanding that extraordinary legend possible for this generation in simple and interesting way.

The ‘Gandhi Quiz’ received a further boost when in an inspring gesture Shri R. Venkataraman, the former President of India, contributed a trophy, which now goes by the name of ‘President R. Venkataraman Rolling Trophy’, which was instituted by the Gandhi Smriti and Darshan Samiti in the year 2002.

We are happy to present the second edition of the ‘Gandhi Quiz’: A Way to Know Mahatma Gandhi prepared by two of my young colleagues Shashwati Jhalani and Samiksha Mudgal. While it may not be an exhaustive work covering all aspects of the Epic Life of Gandhiji, we hope it will arouse the curiosity of the children and youth to know the man we revere as the Father of the Nation.

I express my deep appreciation of our Programme Unit in making this project a fascinating learning experience for the participants. We would welcome suggestions and cooperation of the readers to improve this book further.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
B. Werts, USA
