– A personal view by Harvey TORDOFF
“Bearing in mind he was a thorn in the flesh of the British Government during most of his life it says a great deal about his legacy that he has been honoured in sight of Parliament and says a lot about Britain that they should place his sculpture where it is.”

INVITE: “IN A GENTLE WAY, YOU CAN SHAKE THE WORLD” MAHATMA GANDHI ~ THE MAN OF MILLENNIUM

“In a Gentle Way You Can Shake the World” was deliberately chosen as a sub-title. It refers to his historical backdrop along with Gandhi’s belief in humanity at large, which applies even very much in present and future times to achieve global sustainable culture of peace in a “Gentle Way” yet “can shake the world” and change in a positive direction.  150 years have passed since his birth and 61 years since his assassination, yet world’s conditions, conflicts and wars are much harsher and tragic now than Gandhi’s lifetime or 20th century at large. Gandhi believed in inner peace, global peace and unity for all.

VIOLENCE IS ENCOURAGED, PROTECTED AND EVEN NOURISHED UNDER THE SACRED MEANS OF RELIGION

I am honored to be here as a contemporary author of modern Turkey where great leader Atatürk introduced secularism, ninty one years ago.

I feel so lucky to have grown up in Atatürk’s Turkey,  and also in a family where girls, for generations, had been raised as praised individuals with rights to study, to choose their way of life,  to choose their husbands with whom they stood beside with love all the way. Those women were strong and brave and they set a great example for me.
