Review of the GHA 'Gandhi Committee' Project
There are not many modern personalities in the world, who are as unanimously hailed across every country, every region, every sect, denomination, grouping as apostles of peace and polestar for guiding the humanity’s common destiny towards a bright, sustainable, economically rich, environmentally sustainable, intellectually & spiritually evolving future. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, aka Mahatma [Mahatma is a Hindi word which means Great Soul; it’s conjoint ofHindi word ‘Maha’, which means ‘great’; and Hindi word ‘Atma’ , which means ‘soul’]
It’s indeed befitting & inspiring that utilizing the occasion of 150th Birth Anniversary of great soul Mahatma Gandhi, GHA ‘Gandhi Committee’ Project (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=853) has been conceived and launched by an esteemed group of eminent & truly-international leaders to impart a renewed push and momentum across the globe, to the values of peace, justice and sustainability for, not only, all humanity but all life-form on earth-- values that were espoused and personally lived by Mahatma Gandhi.
It’s humbling to note that I have been invited by GHA Gandhi Committee leaders to contribute to this mammoth project ---- consisting of several well-selected sub-projects --- of raising awareness and initiating call-for-action in various domains—religions, governance, women-empowerment, poverty-alleviation --- in various regions globally observing mutual respect for all, and observing tenets of non-violence and sustainability.
One is indeed fortunate to be able to be part of GHA GC project so as to make a humble contribution to its much-needed success for the benefit of humanity. It generates tremendous hope that the objectives, vision and GHA GC project, so well reverberate & synchronize with the UN SGDs, the latter being a paradigm which enjoys wide & cherished acceptance across the Governments & peoples & generations, and is bound to command acceptance & allegiance universally across dimensions of geography, time, social thought, culture and belief.
Humanity is programmed to aspire for highest & uninterrupted joy, shared prosperity, evolution-to-nobleness for full creation and for all times to come, breaking the narrow confines of self-centered thoughts of domination, greed and exploitation. In addition, GHA GC project is clearly geared towards realization of this grand vision rooted & inspired by Gandhian thought & methods.
With prayers & promise to contribute to the success of noble, bold, innovative & visionary GHA GC Project.
