The book entitled, INDIA AND MAHATMA GANDHI contains seven lectures delivered by Dr. Ravindra Kumar at known universities of Thailand. Gandhi and Hindu-view, tolerance, non-violence, democracy and world order are the central themes of these lectures. On the basis of dynamic philosophic approach and tradition of India, Dr. Kumar has explained these topics quite clearly and thus has done a long memorable work. The method of non-violent Satyagraha adopted by Mahatma Gandhi in political field and its success had wonderfully impressed many of his contemporaries. That is why; the great scientist Albert Einstein had said, "..generations to come will scarcely believe that such a one as this ever with flesh and blood walked upon this earth." Not only is this, after Gandhi's passing away, Martin Luther King Junior had admitted, "The method of non-violent resistance is the most potent weapons available to the people in their struggle for justice and human dignity. In a real sense, Mahatma Gandhi embodied in his life certain universal principles that are inherent in the moral structure of the universe. These principles are as inescapable as the law of gravitation." Dr. Kumar has now emerged as an intellectual and cultural ambassador of India. He is introducing great traditions and values of India to the world. He is continuously stressing upon resolving conflicts and problems through adaptable non-violent means. Hence, he has become an important person for international community and is receiving great regard from all parts of the world. From this point of view, this book becomes significant and also a subject of curiosity for not only the present generation, but also for generations to come.
