In this episode, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, Arun Gandhi, will share his vision of world peace, a vision rooted in nonviolence activism and the transformation of the opponent through love.

Join the ICERM Radio talk show, “Lets Talk About It,” for an inspiring interview and a life-changing-conversation with Arun Gandhi, the fifth grandson of India’s legendary leader, Mohandas K. “Mahatma” Gandhi.

Growing up under the discriminatory apartheid laws of South Africa, Arun was beaten by “white” South Africans for being too black and “black” South Africans for being too white; so, he sought eye-for-an-eye justice. However, he learned from his parents and grandparents that justice does not mean revenge, it means transforming the opponent through love and suffering.

Arun’s grandfather, Mahatma Gandhi, taught him to understand nonviolence through understanding violence. “If we know how much passive violence we perpetrate against one another we will understand why there is so much physical violence plaguing societies and the world,” Gandhi said. Through daily lessons, Arun says, he learned about violence and about anger. Arun shares these lessons all around the world, and is a visionary speaker at high level meetings including the United Nations, educational institutions, and social gatherings.
