Special Gandhi issue in India Perspectives

The link below is a special issue of the journal India Perspectives. It’s dedicated to Gandhi and his non-violent way. Almost all were familiar to me but what was really new to me was the American perspective and an insight into how Martin Luther King Jr developed non-violence from the Rosa Sparks incident… King used to sleep with a revolver beneath his pillow but after being advised by a fellow american who was a Gandhi disciple, and got rid of it. He fully embraced non-violence and began to immerse himself in Gandhi’s philosophies… On a vist to Delhi, he said to Nehru, – with other countries, I am a tourist, in India he was a pilgrim.
