Wednesday Colloquia

Gandhi and Science

by Prof. Pankaj Joshi (International Center for Cosmology (ICC))

Our purpose in this talk is to investigate the question, or a somewhat widespread belief of Indian Intelligentsia, that Gandhi was anti-science, or his methodology was non-scientific. Why is there so little influence of Gandhian methods and thoughts in post-independence India, even as a keen interest in his work and philosophy continues internationally. We also speculate on what Gandhi would have done, to face the challenges of modern age and society.
