This episode of Behind the Prose is more like Behind the Lyrics. Indiana-born, New York-based singer/songwriter Gandhi takes us on a journey that starts when he taught himself how to play the guitar and write songs. That was 15 years ago. Today, like prose writers, Gandhi says through an process of experimentation and practice, he’s found his voice and is preparing for the release of Rebel On, an EP that reflects the musician with a mission he’s become.
In this interview, you’ll learn there are many parallels between penning lyrics and writing prose, including a surprising discovery about the role of the producer.
We listen to some of Gandhi’s song’s, dissect his lyrics, and invite you out to Brooklyn on May 1, where Gandhi will perform a collaboration show with writer and photographer Abigail Ekue. The Darker Side of Lust Private Reading and Concert features Ekue’s erotic poetry and Gandhi’s acoustic melodies and vocals.
Go ahead. Listen. Learn. Write songs.

O ye Drybones the biggest hoax of all is this man here !!!
Gandhi was passionately prejudiced towards black Africans, as clearly displayed by his own writings over his 21-year stint in Gandhi’s writings during his 20 years in South Africa. He promoted racial hatred, in theory, and campaigned for racial segregation, in practice. In his newspaper, The Indian Opinion, he frequently wrote diatribes against the black community. Of particular concern to him was any contact between Indians and Africans. The following series of quotes, which is but a small selection of his extensive writings on the topic, documents Gandhi’s intense hatred for equal treatment of blacks and Indians, whether in culture or under the law. Indeed, his efforts to improve the status of the Indian community in South Africa were primarily focused on ensuring Africans were treated worse than Indians. His goal, thus was greater social inequality rather than universal equality.
All quotes taken from Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi (CWMG).
Sept. 26, 1896: “Ours is one continual struggle against a degradation sought to be inflicted upon us by the Europeans, who desire to degrade us to the level of the raw Kaffir* whose occupation is hunting, and whose sole ambition is to collect a certain number of cattle to buy a wife with and, then, pass his life in indolence and nakedness.” — Vol. 1, p. 410
Sept. 24, 1903: “We believe as much in the purity of race as we think they do… We believe also that the white race of South Africa should be the predominating race.” — Vol. 3, p. 256
Feb. 15, 1904: “Under my suggestion, the Town Council must withdraw the Kaffirs from the Location. About this mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians, I must confess I feel most strongly. I think it is very unfair to the Indian population.” — Vol. 3, p. 429
in The Bible
Many so-called Israelites claim they keep the torah, but then in the same breath, they claim, they can't keep some of the torah in captivity, however they claim their torah observant. Well did Gandhi, keep some of the torah as well, in his admiring of Y'shua Messiah ?
If most conservative talk hosts had held sway during the Revolutionary War, we would be having tea, and tiffin, and God Saving the Queen today.
Glenn Beck's love affair with the Indian in diapers, Mahatma Gandhi, illustrates this best. A fill-in for Savage almost tripped over himself declaring his aversion to violence, and that education and voting Were The Way.
For how long? Public schools are producing ignorance by the cattle-car load. I question whether most of those are educable anymore to any great degree.The rot that is revisionist history has denied them the foundation of seeing America's Greatness. They only see the ill that they have been taught.
Would Washington, Jefferson, and Adams have stood it this long?
I am no chicken-hawk waving a LARPing sabre, and brandishing an airsoft DEAGLE. I merely doubt the efficacy of doing what we've been doing, when that has patently not worked.
