Posted by on Feb 4, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

Another remarkable person, Arun Gandhi’s son and co-leader of the Gandhi Legacy Tours, Tushar Gandhi, was on the air with Dr. Gary Null, Null’s ‘Conversations With Remarkable Minds series. Tushar is a controversial, irreverent and passionate activist known by millions in and out of India.  Tushar is also my fellow director at Gandhi Worldwide Education Institute where he and his Mahatma Gandhi Foundation have provided major support and guidance.

1996 Tushar discovered an urn containing the ashes from Gandhi’s funeral pyre, forgotten in the strong room of the State Bank of India, Cuttack. He secured permission from the Supreme Court and immersed them in the Triveni Sangam on 30 January 1997.The same year he founded the Mahatma Gandhi Foundation, of which he is currently the managing trustee.

Tushar Gandhi from the Heart!Tushar Gandhi commemorated the 75th anniversary of the Dandi Kooch (Gandhi’s famous Salt March protest), by organizing a re-enactment of the 241-mile long walk. He walked the entire stretch and was instrumental in getting the prime minister to declare the route from Sabarmati Ashram to Dandi a historic heritage route.

He is also the chairman for the Australian-Indian Rural Development Foundation, is involved in projects to prevent child trafficking, and is an ambassador of an intergovernmental institution to promote the use of micro-algae spirulina as a nutritional source to fight malnutrition.

A celebrated author and artist to boot, Tushar wrote the exhaustively researched and hotly debated “Lets Kill Gandhi: A Chronicle of His Last Days, the Conspiracy, Murder, Investigation and Trial.”

He currently lives in Mumbai with his wife Sonal and children Vivan and Kasturi.
