More About the Project

This project was inspired by the popular 2006 Indian film “Lage Raho Munnabhai” in which the hero, Munna is persuaded by a vision of Gandhi to adopt non-violent tactics which he calls “Gandhigiri”.We wish to share these ideas of non-violence with young people around the world.


How can the teachings that so inspired some of our great world leaders have significance in our lives today?


We hope this website helps to :-

* Introduce Gandhi’s teachings to a new generation.

* Generate dialogue about non-violence in today’s world.

* Define the word “Satyagraha.”

* Show“Satyagraha” in Action.

* Demonstrate practical uses of non-violence in daily life.

* Suggest and encourage an open dialogue about non-  

   violence and peaceful protest in our society today.
