Gandhi has captured the imagination of the nation and the world through the ages. His life and his teachings have been interpreted in myriad colours, varied words and individual thoughts.

Some artists glorified him as India’s saviour, while some see him in a more practical light as a thinker and an astute politician. How do you think Gandhi fits in the 21st century? Is there a place for Gandhi’s belief system in today’s modern world or will he be limited to the pages of history.
