arun-gandhi Monday Night Radio is honoured to present this very special guest expert, Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mohandas "Mahatma" Gandhi. Mr. Gandhi will be talking about how we can carry on his grandfather's counsel to "Be the Change", and about how we, as individuals, make a difference in tipping the balance from violence to nonviolence. Mr. Gandhi will be appearing on Monday Night Radio on Monday, November 22nd, at 8:00 p.m. PST / 9:00 p.m. MTN / 11:00 p.m. EST. Born in Durban South Africa, Arun Gandhi spent much of his adult life in India working as a journalist and promoting social and economic changes for the poor and the oppressed classes. He and his wife Sunanda personally rescued more than 120 orphan children from the streets and placed them in loving homes around the world. Following this, he founded a Center for Social Change, which transformed the lives of millions in villages in the western state of Maharashtra. In 1987 Sunanda and Arun came to the US, and in 1991 started the M. K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence at the Christian Brothers University in Memphis Tennessee. In 2008 the Institute was moved to the University of Rochester, New York, where Gandhi currently resides. In the 17 years of the Institute’s life the Gandhis took the message of nonviolence and peace to hundreds of thousands of high school and University youth around the US and much of the Western World. Mr. Gandhi then founded the Gandhi for Worldwide Education Institute to promote community building in economically depressed areas of the world through the joining of Gandhian philosophy and vocational education for children and their parents. He is presently the president, and a member of the board. Visit the Gandhi for Worldwide Education Institute here.
