Posted by on May 20, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Here is a video featuring Tushar Gandhi, great grandson of Mahatma Gandhi. He shares with us from the heart.  

  “My grandmother told me as a kid she told me that I was like a sapling that had taken root under the shadow of a massive tree and no matter what I did I would not be able to move out of that showdown and so it was up me whether I use the protection of that tree to flourish or treat it as a curse and be shriveled up and stunted.”
