Gandhian values in the modern world

October 2, 2019 | 18:00 - 20:00
  • Guildhall, Basinghall Street, London EC2V 7HH


2019 is the 150th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth, and we would like to celebrate this with GoDharmic and FutureBricks at the Guildhall.

Gandhi gave India its very first lessons of tolerance, non-violence, Satyagraha, the Quit India Movement, the Dandi March, and of belief in one’s own faith. He played a crucial part in India’s independence movement, showcased India on the international platform and inspired social activists around the world.

It is the love and compassion he showed during his non-violent struggles against the British Raj that generations has most associated with him.

But how relevant is this message today? Has the Gandhian approach of love, compassion, tolerance and non-violence gone out of fashion? Is it being lost in religious, political and emotional fervour? 

On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, come hear from three eminent speakers at the prestigious Guildhall, on what Gandhi’s message could mean today.


  • Dr Nick Sutton, Director, Continuing Education, Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies; Co-founder of Go Dharmic
  • Nitin Sonowane: Social Activist; over the past three years, Nitin has walked over 5,000km and cycled 25,000km, and is planning to increase this figure when he walks from Glasgow to London, just in time for Gandhi’s 150th birthday celebrations in London on the 2nd of October 2019
  • Hemal Randerwala, Founder and Chairman, Go Dharmic; Managing Director, Arjun Global
