Oct 9

7 PM
Lecture
Rice University

Baker Hall, Suite 120, on the Rice University Campus

Indian political and spiritual leader Mahatma Gandhi was not “born” to nonviolence. He discovered it in his travels and through physical, intellectual and spiritual experiences. Rajmohan Gandhi tells the story of his grandfather’s journey that culminated in his belief in nonviolence as a core value of life — and in his commitment to it as a political strategy.

Rajmohan Gandhi is Research Professor, Center for South Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
