Down the memory lane.......

This is about the time I was very young and was taught about Gandhism in school. When I came back home, I asked my mom and she said yes it works.
Then a little later while playing a game, a friend of mine got annoyed and slapped me. With Ahimsa firmly ingrained in my mind as the ultimate practice to follow, I offered the other cheek to my friend. Obliged, my friend gleefully slapped me again. Shocked and uterly surprised to see Ahimsa not work, I gave her 2-3-4 right then and there.;-)

In the evening back home, mom asked me about what happened.
After narrating her the whole incident, I told her your way didn't work so i used mine .:-) (snehaism)

I have my own reservations against Gandhi-ji. With all due respect, I don't see how most of his philosophies will work today.

Heh heh heh, I know a person who'd LOVE to debate with me on that. Sadly, he has quit blogging - for now. I'll remember to direct him to this post if he ever does come back.

Peace.

it's easy to understand why MK Gandhi saw wisdom in non-violence once you have seen his pics...
:P
and i am a proponent of his theory as well! i have never resorted to violence...ok, maybe once or twice...or maybe thrice...hmmm, lets not get to counting...
:D

Your profile doesn't tell your age so am not sure whether you'd understand this...

Gandhi was a Strategist. His acts are not applicable to any and every situation. All his acts were strategically aligned, timed and executed.

And this coming from a person who is not his fan, not even close!
