"Gandhi is the most entertaining person I have met,” said the man who was himself one of the greatest entertainers of all time - Charlie Chaplin. That the legendary Chaplin should have found Gandhi ‘the most entertaining person’ comes as a surprise to many, given that the latter is only thought of in the context of India’s independence struggle. After all, this was the same man of whom Albert Einstein remarked, “Generations to come will scarcely believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth”.
The uncanny sense of humour that Chaplin found so endearing was, however, just one of the many traits that made Gandhi a fascinating personality. In this exciting talk, international speaker Dr. Devika, who has spent her life dedicated to the study of the great leader, will take you on a journey to discover the man who rightfully came to be known as the Mahatma (the Great One). The talk is as entertaining as it is educational, as Dr. Devika will teach you about Gandhi through an expanse of stories, images, videos and interactive discussion.
You will learn lesser known facts about Gandhi, and also realise why his teachings and practices withstand the test of time.
