On This Day!

On This Day! Today is the anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s swearing-in as President of South Africa.   Photo: This is the very location where Nelson Mandela cast his vote in his country’s first all-race elections at a polling booth in the school.

Book Review: Gandhi’s Footprints

M.K. Gandhi’s pursuit of liberation from an era of violence and subjugation was thoroughly documented prior to Prerag Cicovacki’s new look at Gandhi’s actual goals and pragmatic approach for humanity’s liberation, not only from government imperialism and racism but from the actual impediments to spiritual liberation that he himself struggled against.

The book also provides an assessment of how viable his positive vision of humanity was and is. Cicovacki writes: “What is paradoxical in Gandhi’s approach is that he himself was a unique...
