MUSIC OF THE SPINNING WHEEL; Mahatma Gandhi's Manifesto for the Internet Age

Book Author: Sudheendra Kulkarni
Published by: Amaryllis (Pages 725; Price Rs 595)
Photodocumentary by: Riddhi J Chokhawala



'This is not the work of idle academic curiosity about an iconic figure of yesteryears. It is a call to action and service, based on my reflections about what Gandhi means to India and the world, today and tomorrow.' says Sudheendra Kulkarni, a BJP leader and prominent columnist. The book, perhaps for the first time in Gandhian literature, seeks to establish a correlation between the moral philosophy of the spinning wheel (charkha) and the enormously benign potential of the Internet. Hence, Kulkarni's assertion that the Internet is an avataar of the spinning wheel. He has made an earnest attempt to make this book, in howsoever tiny a measure, an aid to the glocal (global and local) movements of social, political, cultural, scientific and spiritual activists striving to create a better world. The book sums its action-oriented appeal thus: "Let Us Become Internet Satyagrahis."

Release Date: 04 September 2012
Place: Gandhi Smriti, 30 January Marg, New Delhi

MAKING THE SEWER ... A RIVER AGAIN - WHY MUMBAI MUST RECLAIM ITS MITHI

This documentary film is based on a comprehensive study by a team of ORF researchers on the shocking mismanagement of the Mithi by the authorities and her abuse by Mumbaikars over the years.

With key lessons from the best practices on river restoration and waterfront development from around the world and in India, this study presents a grand vision for the Mithi of tomorrow as the centrepiece of Mumbai's own urban renewal.

Duration - 29 mins      Release Date - 17th May 2011       Place: Mumbai     Total Cost  - Rs 1.2 lakh
