What Gandhi’s can Learn from Gandhi

(via Indian Express) in a brilliant article, Sudheendra Kulkarni talks about how the first family of India misuse the Gandhi surname.

He talks about a movie Gandhi My Father by Feroz Abbas Khan, which is one of the finest cinematic narrations of the greatest hero of modern Indian history. Without being overtly pedagogic, the movie is replete with messages of contemporary significance. One of them is how the Mahatma detested nepotism and would do nothing whatsoever to promote his son’s career using his personal influence. Harilal wants to study law in England and become, like his father, a barrister.
