As a school boy in India, Dr. Keshav Gupta read Mahatma Gandhi’s autobiography, My Experiments with the Truth. Afterward, many of the myths about Gandhi promoted in the media and in the books he read were erased, Gandhi and his work were better understood and held in esteem. It was a life-changing experience for the young Gupta.
Join Dr. Gupta Wednesday April 26, 2006 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. as he shares the Gandhi autobiography from the perspective of its considerable personal impact. Exchange what you have read about the man and the culture. To help prepare for the discussion, photocopied sets of a few chapters selected by Dr. Gupta are available at the circulation desk of the library.
This dialogue in the library’s Voices & Choices Center Gallery (2nd floor) is a collaboration between the VCC and the Office of Public Engagement and is the final Reading Exchange for the semester. An open invitation is extended to all interested in learning more about Gandhi, Hindu culture, and India in general.
