About the Book :
Man as an infinite essence of humanism is perhaps on the verge of denouement. Ad an introspective visionary per excellence, Majarma Gandhi makes serene inroads to humanism not from without but from within where the solemn phoenix of human reawakening is reborn in the holy urn of consciousness and evolution. Diverse and multi dimensional as the Gandhian strategies of humanism are, the socio-cultural aspects of humanism side by side with religion in the form of Daridranarayana or Sarvodya as an unparalledled aesthetic force for global human welfare bring forth a luminous and unending exposure of Gandhi as an ardent humanist. Here is an innovatiove study Gandhian Humanism-towards this direction. It also makes an intorsevitve approach to Gandhian viewpoints on education as a purified process of self askance, self-enrichment and self-revolution to forge ahead in the quest for true humanism. A comparative study on Rabindranath Tagore and Mahatma Gandhi as harbingers of humanism is the most prominent indepth area of research which might attract and invite erudite criticism from every esteemed reader of this book. A significant contribution to Gandhian Studies for global peace and humanism.
