Q. It’s Gandhi Jayanti tomorrow. Any Gandhi-ism (or thought/statement) that you think is most appropriate for the Indian media as it attempts to sail through these VUCA times?

 

A. To my mind, Mahatma Gandhi represents certain values that would always be relevant. In fact in a VUCA world, its relevance would be more beneficial, if practised in their true spirits. Fundamentally, he espoused goodness for all and by all. He also postulated truth and non-violence as  non-negotiable foundation of everything. These principles are sector-agnostic and quintessentially pertinent. My conviction has succinctly been  expressed in  Albert Einstein’s golden words on the Mahatma:   “Generations to come, it may well be, will scarce believe that such a man as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth”.
