While living with his grandfather Mahatma Gandhi from 1946 until his assassination in 1948, Arun experienced the most tumultuous period in India's struggle to free itself from British rule. He saw the first-hand effects of a national campaign for liberation which was carried out through both violent and nonviolent means. Both the events and Mahatma Gandhi's teachings strongly influenced Arun.

When Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in 1948, Arun was in South Africa with his parents and felt such anger that he expressed the desire to take revenge upon the assassin. Then his parents reminded him of his grandfather’s words: Never react immediately in anger. Arun's parents taught him to "forgive" and dedicate his life to ending senseless violence in the world.
