Arun Gandhi to visit Dundee on Saturday 9th Sept

The One World Centre is delighted to be hosting a visit this Saturday 9th September from Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, at Dundee University.

The event will take place in the Dalhousie Building (room 3.G.02) from 2.15 -3.30pm, where Arun will talk about the lessons he learned as a young boy from his famous grandfather.

“We should not be ashamed of anger. It’s a very good and powerful thing that motivates us. But what we need to be ashamed of is the way we abuse it.” ~Mahatma Gandhi

Arun Gandhi is a peace activist, author, environmentalist, journalist and proponent of non-violence who promotes the wisdom and teachings of his late grandfather around the world. This weekend he will share with us the thoughts from his latest work of non-fiction, The Gift of Anger, copies of which will be available for sale at this event. Arun believes that the violence in the world today makes Gandhi’s teachings more relevant and important than ever. His talk will place these teachings in a modern context, shedding new light on how Gandhi’s principles can and must be applied to today’s concerns. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion following the talk.

Spaces at Saturday’s lecture are limited so attendees should arrive early to avoid disappointment.

The event is free but donations towards the cost would be appreciated.
