THE FATE OF GANDHI’S HERITAGE: UPS AND OBLIVION

Cover Page

Abstract


The fate of great peoples’ heritage is never explicit. Gandhi was called the “great soul”, “father of the nation”, “victorious warrior”, “Apostle of non-violence”. Yet there are those who called him a great deceiver, a faqir, a provoker, an insane idealist. Mahatma is both a utopian and a visionary. He has been the first to succeed in transforming ahimsa, a traditional concept of Indian culture, in the universal principle of morality: in private life, in politics, in economy, in relation to nature, in racial, religious and caste relations, in matters of war and peace.
