LESSONS FROM HIS GRANDFATHER (and HIS GRANDMOTHER)

ARUN GANDHI’S TALK AND BOOK

By Tony Crosby

In late March, Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi and Kusturba Gandhi, presented a lecture on what he had learned from his grandparents when he visited them in India at the age of 12 in 1946-1947. A native of the Indian community in South Africa, Gandhi has also recorded his “Education in the Path of Nonviolence” in a memoir entitled Legacy of Love. As the lecture drew more people than could squeeze into the University auditorium and copies of his book rapidly sold out, I will try to blend my memories of the talk with the words of the text in this brief report.

The right to vote is one of the fundamental principles in our founding fathers, and generations of Americans thereafter, fought to establish and maintain as the cornerstone of our democracy. Far too often we, as Americans, take this right for granted. Voting is more then saying yes or no on an issue. It is more than putting “our woman” in office. Voting is the right to be informed, to be educated, and to be involved. The question posted, however, is why is this (voting) important? For this writer, the reason voting is important has a three part answer.

“…that government of the people, by the people and for the

people shall not perish from the earth.”

 

Abraham Lincoln

Democracy

Abraham Lincoln understood that for a democracy to work properly, it is at its most fundamental level about its citizens. Not its politicians.  Not its political parties.  Not its lobbyists. That means democracy is about you and me and us.
